GHD Business School

The iconic GHD Business School is a critical organisational capability that underpins our technical leadership and supports our people’s development and career aspirations. It plays a key part in the high retention of our people through the delivery of a combination of internal programs – such as training, seminars, eLearning and conferences – as well as access to endorsed external training initiatives.

2016 achievements

  • Training activities: During the year we delivered more than 25,000 face to face and eLearning training activities globally, including design and delivery of health and safety, leadership and management development, client service skills, as well as environmental awareness programs for North America.
  • Building networks and social collaboration: To support our strategy of creating a connected global network, we facilitated digital learning options for our people.
  • Internal trainer network: We continue to utilise the experience of our senior professionals to deliver coaching and training in project management and client service skills. This approach helps create a culture of experienced people wanting to ‘give back’ by helping develop GHD Young Professionals.
  • iConnect: Change management and learning materials were rolled out to introduce our new intranet and revised project delivery approach.
