Learning and Development
We are committed to helping everybody at Frontier reach their potential through training, development and constructive line management. We want everybody to be the best they can be in their roles, enabling them to achieve their ambitions in our business.
In spring 2016, 93% of our people had a structured discussion with their line manager, to talk about performance, expectations and development needs. We use these discussions to set clear, measurable objectives, but also to recognise and nurture talent.
The output feeds into our Learning and Development programme, helping us to focus our resources in the areas they are needed most.
In 2016, 648 people benefited from professional training at Frontier, with a total of 984 places taken at training events. Our Leadership Development Programme (LDP), which is modular training delivered over a two year period, has now been completed by 82 managers in the business, with a further 32 still partway through.
Graduates of the LDP work together in buddy groups once the course is completed, to help each other implement the techniques and maximise the opportunities to use what they have learned. Everybody in the business benefits from the improvement in leadership and management and this is another way in which we help all our people reach their potential.
