Employee Engagement Workshops

Whilst implementing SFIA into your organisation, it is always worth getting your employees on board with the new process. What better way to do this than to have a SFIA Consultant on hand to deliver the information and ask any SFIA questions during an interesting half-day course?

What will be covered:

  • What SFIA is and what it looks like from an employee’s perspective
  • How will it be used in your organisation
  • The processes the employee will be involved with

Sometimes it can seem like your employee’s worlds are being rocked and it can be tricky to get them enthused about it. With our Engagement workshops we can customise the presentation to suit your SFIA implementation project, and help them see the benefits as you do.


What you will learn from the above courses and how it will benefit your organisation can be managed in a variety of ways. If you have any specific SFIA training needs we would be happy to discuss total customisation of the courses with you.
