Following the successful launch of our Vibe 360 feedback survey with the Abellio Trains group in 2017 and running several successful programmes each year since then, we are pleased to be continuing our relationship with Abellio Transport Holdings and working in partnership with the Operating Companies to deliver our Vibe 360 assessment for their leadership teams.
Abellio operates the rail franchises of Greater Anglia, ScotRail, West Midlands Trains, East Midland trains and the Merseyrail concession as well as 8% of London buses, and employs more than 14,000 people across the UK.
Using the Abellio Leadership Framework, internal values and competencies, this bespoke assessment uses our Vibe 360 technology based on relationship psychology that enhances colleague’s self-awareness in line with their personal goals, the customer value proposition and company objectives. We’ve also added an important new pillar this year focusing on the leadership behaviours required to lead and manage change.
Jacqueline Hepburn, UK Head of Organisation Effectiveness at Abellio commented.
”We are delighted with the support we have been given to train up our internal coaches to provide feedback for the 360 programme. This is integral to the roll-out of 360s across Abellio and our Operating Companies. I am looking forward to getting the programme up and running and seeing the results across our group. This will help us to continue to support our leaders to develop their potential and drive forward leadership effectiveness over the next year.
We are using our Vibe 360 platform to help develop high-performing colleagues and build stronger teams with 360 feedback insights that drive development, productivity and engagement. As part of the roll-out, we have been working with their internal coaches to support the delivery and subsequent coaching of the Vibe 360 Personal Report by running online Train the Trainer masterclasses.
The sessions are interactive and were delivered via the zoom platform. The features of zoom allow the participants to write on a whiteboard in group discussions, to go into break out rooms for smaller discussions and to use the interactive features for checking participants understanding. We also encourage the use of the chat facility to ask questions and raise points in a ‘car park’ style that we regularly discuss. All of the masterclasses were delivered by Stephanie Corking, our People Director who has a long relationship with the group, as she was responsible for leading the team that designed and delivered the first 360 sessions back in 2017.
“We will continue to support the internal coaches, HRD’s and key stakeholders over the next 12 months and work collaboratively with them to deliver a high quality 360 programme. It’s been a great experience working across the Operating Companies and delivering feedback to the leaders across the UK over the last few years and I look forward to hearing the success of the internal teams as they start to roll out the programme in the coming weeks and months”.
