How We Build the Workforce of the Future
The Opt Workforce Builder™
In a highly uncertain climate, the Opt Workforce Builder™ offers you the opportunity to implement your people strategy without a concerned eye on the budget.
Easily assimilated into workplace L&D strategy and business plans, to achieve business, team and individual goals, the Opt Workforce Builder™ is a compendium of practical resources. A best practice benchmark designed for flexibility and continuous alignment to business need and workforce development.
The Opt Workforce Builder™ has been developed for any business seeking to embed productive working relationships in an ever-changing workplace.
A workforce voice that works for your business
Without a workforce voice, misinterpretations, inappropriate patterns of behaviour and missed opportunities for continual improvement and growth become the norm.
In an economic climate of inflation and uncertainty, open communication channels are vital. The Opt for Learning practical approach can help your organisation embed a workforce voice that works for your business.
For any business seeking to embed channels for rewarding dialogue with employees, to explore views, ideas and resolve practical difficulties, especially important in a time of high uncertainty.
Let’s have some Banter…. about Banter!
Drawing on our wealth of experience, the Opt for Learning team have created Exploring Banter at Work, a workforce development initiative, designed to embrace the unique characteristics and individual experiences in any working environment.

Resolving workplace conflict early and informally
Frequently off the shelf, to meet statutory requirements, an organisational grievance procedure can be a sparse offering; little help to managers trying to build healthy relationships and prevent the cost of escalating workplace conflict.
Mediation, conflict coaching, facilitated meetings and staff development initiatives can, however, help prevent low-level workplace conflict degenerating further. Opt for Learning offer a variety of interventions, adaptable to different circumstances, to rebuild working relationships.
For Human Resource professionals, leaders, managers and supervisors seeking to reduce the risk of workplace conflict.
