Education on the topic of Organizational Culture is definitely a step forward for all the employees of our Bank which has been confirmed by our results in 2014. in terms of achieved volume, number of provided services, increase of productivity and effectiveness of leadership.
I think that there are still many areas in which we can collaborate.

Our cooperation with Mario and his team started in 2012. I personally had the opportunity to attend training on “ROI on Education” in an organization. This training helped me to become aware of all necessary elements of which a HR professional like me has to account for – making sure that education is aimed at our employees and designed accordingly and finally measuring the effect of it on knowledge, behavior, results and even ROI. Our cooperation has been continuing by organizing and performing trainings on top management level. Their great flexibility and customer orientation is definitely to be highlighted as great advantage of this company.

Gordana Šimunić, Specialist for Learning and Development, Unicredit Group
Our whole team – starting at top management level down to front line employees who are in direct contact with our customers – has been exposed to the trainings. During the training process, many things have changed, but most of all, our employees have been starting to experience our organization’s key results in a different way than before. They started to embrace them with passion. Also, this resulted in our employees developing self-awareness of when they are working in non-productive areas and then applying the new gained tools so they could on a daily basis move into more productive ways of working. Through the implementation of the attended training, we definitely enhanced our company’s culture in that we became one big company family. Our departments pulled together and are now really working all together on problem solving towards reaching key results.

All of the trainings have been adjusted to the specific needs of our small bank as the trainers have beforehand acquainted themselves in detail with the work at the bank and accordingly defined the needs of our participants.
