ORL helps leaders at Slimming World achieve their ILM Certificate in Leadership & Management

In March this year we were pleased to announce that we had partnered with Slimming World – one of the UK’s leading slimming organisations – to help develop their leadership capability. Eleven leaders at Slimming World were chosen to complete a pilot leadership programme called ‘Leadership in Action’ which would lead to each of them gaining their Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) Level 3 Certificate in Leadership and Management. ORL helped deliver the ILM course and supported the leaders to complete and submit a set of work-based assignments. The programme was specially adapted to reflect Slimming World’s unique culture, enabling the graduates to apply their new found learning back in the business. After months of hard work, the leaders recently delivered their final presentations to Slimming World’s senior team and we are delighted to say that each leader successfully completed the programme with flying colours!

The graduate leaders were presented with their ILM certificates at a champagne reception which fully recognised their hard work and efforts. Lyn Green, Slimming World Head of Talent, Learning and Organisational Development, said “The graduates all put so much time and effort into their training and it’s been a pleasure and a joy to be part of that journey”.

A huge ‘well done’ to everyone involved in the programme from us at ORL and we wish you all the very best for your next phase of Leadership in Action!
