EVERYONE IS EXPECTED TO COME HOME – BUT SOMETIMES IT DOES NOT HAPPEN
Safety and health awareness is an increasingly important topic nowadays. Companies, especially those most affected in the production, energy, chemical and construction industries are investing a lot of attention and energy into developing processes, enforcing regulations and training their employees. The commitment of management and the constant efforts of safety professionals are in vain if employees do not have the right attitude, especially those managers on the lower and middle level.
Develor’s Safety Awareness training programs and workshops specifically influence this key factor: they fundamentally change attitude, achieve permanent behavior change, and measurably improve corporate safety indicators. Develor guarantees radical improvement of safety indicators even in short-term. Our specialized programs combine some of the professional elements of safety educations with practical skill development elements. This dual nature ensures lasting change in attitude and behavior in both operational safety and safety awareness topics.
WHY OUR LEADERSHIP FOR SAFETY AND SAFETY AWARENESS PROGRAMS BECAME THE MOST POPULAR HSE-RELATED TRAINING COURSES IN CENTRAL-EUROPE?
Based on our clients’ feedbacks and participants’ evaluation there are 3 main reasons:
- the programs address the most relevant HSE issues managers and employees face with regarding risks, failures and accidents
- with the help of the practice-oriented and interactive way of delivery participants are highly involved and thus mindset-shift guaranteed
- the projects delivered significantly contributed to the measurable improvement of the main HSE KPIs of many organizations
DEVELOR’s HSE training and workshop programs are designed to ensure the mindset shift and attitude change of the managers and employees. They properly fit into the organizational training and educational programs as they well integrate the compulsory HSE educations.
The programs are not intended to replace the already existing programs, but rather as an addition to them, we are proposing our trainings, workshops and our communicational services to enhance their efficiency.
WHAT MAKES OUR TRAINING SPECIAL?
- 100% involvement of the participants
- high level of practice orientation
- fully tailored to the organization
- practical examples and case studies
- application support and follow up
- unified content in case of multi-country delivery
CREDIBLE DEVELOR TRAINERS
Apart from training content, it is indispensable that credible and authentic trainers deliver the programs: those with expertise in the field of safety, with experiences in mindset-shift courses. Our consultants are also familiar with the organizational environment where they deliver the programs and are skilled in attaining lasting behavior and attitude change. Our Safety Awareness programs have been developed with the involvement and active contribution of HSE Managers and inspectors from several countries.
"We have been collaborating with Develor on the continuing education of employees within the Business Unit Oncology since 2008. We started with an Insights project for managers, followed by all employees in the office and finally the whole sales team (2009). Our mutual collaboration continued with members of the sales team in 2010 in “Negotiating with difficult clients” followed by the screening of communication channels, habits and inter-team cooperation called “Team Sociomapping” in 2011 (all were included who come into mutual contact, including the office staff). Throughout the time of our collaboration Develor has been a very responsive company both in the organisation and implementing of training. Our team is very diverse, including people of various ages, experience, education, personality and having behind them a range of different types of training in their professional careers. The Develor trainers were and are able to adapt to this diversely composed team and can capture, integrate and maintain their interest. The last-mentioned project, Team Sociomapping, showed us another viewpoint of the situation in individual teams, inter-team cooperation and the level of communication between people positioned outside the firmly created teams. We were very satisfied with the training and it captivated us so much that next year we would like to undertake this training once more so that we are able to assess the progress of individual teams and at the same time the Business Unit Oncology as a whole one year on."Ing.

"We have been working with the Develor company since 2010. The aim of establishing mutual co-operation was to give significant support to Confal’s operational responsiveness, by, among other things, changing the system of employee performance motivation. As part of the project’s realization Develor trainers and consultants primarily focused on redesigning the reward system, changes in organizational structure, which also took in altering competences and job responsibilities, and proposed new standards in project management. With regard to the implementation of these changes, it was necessary to illustratively gauge what effect the project has on the running of the firm, particularly in the area of teamwork. Develor consultants proposed Team sociomapping, which uses an attractive map, as an effective gauge for individuals from team management to interpret, with the help of consultants, the team’s unity, frequency and quality of communication and existing mutual interaction. A deeper analysis of the map allowed for the subsequent evaluation of the effect of the realized changes during the duration of the project and, moreover, to identify areas for necessary further changes and improvement. All participants accepted the results and the team sociomapping itself positively and openly. Many things which until then we had not been able to define nor initiate mutual exchanges of opinions upon, we could constructively discuss thanks to our team’s illustrative maps. We consider the selected method to be very good and in the future plan to undertake such sociomapping again."Michal Skriecka, Business and Finance Manager - Confal
"If I have to choose three key words which, in my opinion, describe Develor’s team as our partner, they would be flexibility, desire and engagement. We have worked together in projects related to increasing the efficiency of team work and the development of leadership skills. The thing that impressed me most was that they accept challenges and meet our expectations for specialty – specialty as a client, needs, and delivery. I recommend Develor as a partner in building leadership and managerial potentials and also in the development of team work skills."Nelly Hristova, Human Resource Manager - Economedia
“After various trainings carried out by several companies I was wandering whether this would again be wasted time, a training for training, whether it will bring anything to its attendants. I had a feeling that it is often difficult to apply the provided information or use it in the real work. This is also why it was always difficult for me to decide whether I will attend a training and spend time there. However, after attending trainings of Develor I must confirm that they belonged to those, which in my opinion enriched and developed employees' view of themselves, their colleagues and business partners and also positively affected their work habits. Apart from the training's content, the trainer also constitutes a very important part of the training. Develor proved to be good in this as well. Simply said it did not disappoint us."Ing. Mário Grega, Director of the company - VINCI Park Slovakia

With this training we aimed at improving the leadership qualities of Thermal Service line managers.

"...In the fall of 2009 the people turnover reached 25% within a half a year, also several key people had left the company, this has caused significant problems for us. This situation had almost affected the operability of the company. At this point we made a decision to start a Talent management and Key Employee Retention program. The project started out with workshops and consulting work involving the full management... I considered the measurability and return of the program to be very important. We set concrete objectives at the very beginning and we measured the extent of their achievement. We expected Develor to make significant changes in the KPI's we set. They were to bring down the volume of people turnover, which was 25 % in the second half of 2009 to below 10%, and to improve the internal Employee satisfaction index that was on 48%. The results of projects showed very fast. In the first half of 2010 the people turnover became 5%, and at the Employee satisfaction survey we moved up to the first place from the very last on an international level with a 76 % result. All this happened within a half year after the launching of the project. Based on these tangible results we continued the collaboration which still in live."István Katus, Alcoa - CFO, Director, European Financial Services & Finance Hungary
