Workplace learning accreditation for Warwick Conferences
Warwick Conferences, the conference, meeting and events business at the University of Warwick, has again achieved the globally-recognised benchmark for workplace learning facilities. This recognises that Warwick Conferences is at the forefront of innovative training environments.
Its renewed accreditation with the Learning and Performance Institute (LPI), the leading authority on workplace learning, demonstrates that it achieves quality standards for successful learning events, and is committed to the learning and development sector.
Warwick Conferences continues to lead the way in workplace learning, having been among the first to transform traditional meeting rooms into creative spaces, introducing novel settings, such as a kitchen, to inspire new ways of thinking.
Having brought in breakout areas with table tennis and games consoles to enhance wellbeing, it is now developing a new meeting space outdoors - and is also working with a local training provider to devise a modern twist on a conventional boardroom.
Andrew Taylor, Head of Conference Centres at Warwick Conferences, said: “We are continually looking at new ways to deliver an experience rather than just a space to make training more memorable and effective for businesses large and small.
“In addition to the recognition of our facilities, our accreditation with the LPI will help with our own learning, giving us greater insight into the changing needs and trends so we can continue to deliver the perfect learning environment.
“We hosted an event with the LPI last year which focused on the benefits of an engaging learning environment and provided an opportunity for learning and development professionals to experience our own creative spaces and their impact on learning.
“It is great for our local business community in particular to have two organisations on their doorstep at the forefront of workplace learning, coming together to promote leading facilities which they can easily access and benefit from.”
Michael Strawbridge, Global Head of Content, Networks & Member Services at LPI, said: “Warwick Conferences’ Learning Facilities accreditation serves as an absolute guarantee of quality; a commitment to the provision of outstanding and high-quality services to the learning sector.
“Organisations looking for the best venues for learning events can be assured that Warwick Conferences will provide everything they need for a successful event, and in this regard they are unhesitatingly recommended by the Learning and Performance Institute.”
