Just under a year ago we completed a 2 year high potential (HIPO) development programme with Shred-it, the the world’s leading secure information destruction company and part of Stericycle Inc.
We welcomed participants from across Shred-it’s EMEAA operations, from the UK, Ireland, Germany and South Africa to a programme that would equip them to be leaders of the future, by focusing on enhancing their understanding of business and what it takes to lead and inspire others.
Nyomi Loftus joined the programme as an Internal Sales Representative. Throughout the programme she proved herself to be inquisitive, bold and humble. We were delighted to hear from Nyomi recently with an update on her progress.
Firstly I wanted to get in touch to say a massive thank you for the work you did with me during the HIPO program.
Since the program finished I applied and got a position as an Internal Sales Team Leader. I have now been in the role for 6 months. During that time I have been consistently looking back over the material that we covered.
I have grown my team from 5 people to 8 and managed to drive their performance to now being consistently over 120% to target.
Yesterday I passed my probation and it got me thinking about the true value achieved from taking part in your training.
I am sure you will pleased to hear that I am now the proud owner of a reflections diary.
Overall, I believe that the program came at the perfect time for me, it really helped me cement some focus when the rest of my life was very difficult.
When I think back to Nyomi that did the interviews for that programme, I see a totally different person both personally and professionally.
Hope you are doing well and imparting your wisdom on other professionals.
I thank you and everyone else involved in the program for helping me to understand my true potential.
