Although only a small outfit, we have big values and ambitions which has set us apart from our competitors since the birth of Leap in 2004.
We have grown, learned and developed over the years and now with 2012 fast approaching, we felt we needed some structure to the core business plan of Leap-design for change, with objectives and achievable goals to maintain our position on top.
We began to realise that our performance could be improved with an increase in training and communication skills. The future growth of the company needed to be managed more effectively.The Investors in People programme offered a whole range of structures for taking the business forward. We began working with Investors in People advisers to develop formal systems for staff training and development – and for evaluating the benefits.
We have been actively working with the Investors in People (IIP) Standard for just over a year now, using it’s principles to provide focus and an attention to detail that has helped confer direction and a new energy to our plans to move to the Market House in St Austell town centre by Spring next year. Watch this space on that : )
Final quote from Richard Corbett our assessor:
\”Matt Hocking’s leadership of Leap-design for change is energetic and inspirational, founded on the belief
that unless the team are fully engaged with the values of the business, then it will not
succeed in fulfilling its wider purposes: people subscribe to the belief that Leap are not
simply providing graphic design services but promoting the agenda of “design for change” -
nurturing environmental interests not just in the work they do but in raising the awareness of
such concerns with everyone the company interacts with. In the final outcome, Matt appears
to be just part of the team and Leap Media is everyone’s business\”.
