Stonegate Group launches new learning & development programme

The UK’s largest pub company, Stonegate Group has launched a new development programme across its management team named ‘Future Leaders’, inspiring a new generation of leaders from within its organisation.

The programme sees delegates, from across the company, work their way through a six-session programme lasting 10 months in total. Each workshop challenges and enhances the leadership thinking of each individual and will see a number of key figures from across Stonegate Group lead sessions, including from five of the Company’s Board Members.

Future Leaders has been designed for high potential leaders from within the business with three objectives in mind: to provide an internally delivered programme that enables delegates to interact with the Operations Board whilst building their own personal brand; to retain and promote to the Leadership Team from within Stonegate Group, and to continuously build on the performance of our high potential individuals whilst challenging their thinking processes.

Tim Painter, HR Director, said, “I am delighted to see the start of this great project, watching the Future Leaders programme be brought to life has been fantastic. We are on a mission to raise the bar on the British pub, by being the best for our people as they sit at the heart of our business.

'Our Future Leaders programme equips our rising stars with the tools and behaviours that they need to have a long and successful career with us.”

The first cohort consists of 32 delegates, split between Head Office and Operations roles. The programme consists of six modules with each delegate being given the opportunity to network with each member of the Operations Board, and their fellow delegates to share learnings after each session.

Throughout the 10-month programme delegates will be given a variety of ways to learn including videos, group discussions, role play, case studies, team activities and personal reflection reviews.
