Delivering excellence with Leadership Camp

“Leadership Camp is just one example of how we’re significantly investing in our leadership and management capability. We see the value immediately, helping our managers to build valuable networks, cultivating innovation and affording the opportunity for self-reflection in a way we simply don’t get in the day to day.

This all contributes to our culture of excellence – and best of all, the drive and passion they feel is contagious! They take it back to their own teams.” Mark Underwood, COO, Acacium Group.

As people-first business, we are committed to developing our leadership and nurturing future talent. By supporting our team in realising their career ambitions, we also drive the sustainable growth of our business to help more customers care for people across the world. 

Having now graduated its third cohort, Leadership Camp is an opportunity for Acacium Group leaders from across our 23 brands to meet, learn and grow through a series of interactive workshops, training sessions and mental and physical challenges.  

By removing leaders from their everyday environments and away from routine tasks, they are taken out of their comfort zone and afforded a valuable opportunity for self-reflection.  Having completed the camp, the leaders undertake one on one coaching helping them to implement the lessons they learned to better support their teams and their customers.  

Leadership Camp has proven to not only have a transformative effect on the individual, but also the business as a whole. But don’t just take it from us;  

“I was lucky enough to attend the first Leadership Camp – and despite being a bit apprehensive at first, it proved to be an incredible experience. My learnings from camp will continue to shape the way I think about my own development, and the needs of my team.” Claire Murphy, Regional Operations Director, Pulse Nursing 

“Being part of the People Team means I’m aware of all the great initiatives that support our workforce across the Group – but the Leadership Camp meant experiencing it in action!“ Marcia White, Senior People Partner for Diversified Healthcare 

“I learned that people are the most important aspect of a team. In practical terms, we need to increase the focus on people engagement by making meetings more relational rather than transactional. In terms of content, environment and learning outcomes, this is one of the best training programmes I have been on throughout my career.” Raja Garikipati, Tech & Transformation,  Senior Business Insight Lead
