Why investing in our Future Leaders puts us on the path to prosperity

Why investing in our Future Leaders puts us on the path to prosperity

03 October 2016

Clear career progression, regular sharpening of skills and targeted talent development are the bedrock of many industries. Whereas in the physical activity sector, we often rely more on the natural drive and passion of our people to achieve success in our fast-paced workplaces. But is that enough?
