Hemsley Fraser celebrates 12 consecutive years as a Top 20 Leadership Training Company

Hemsley Fraser has once again been named as one of Training Industry’s Top 20 Leadership Training Companies. The learning and development business is proud to have been recognised every single year since the list’s incorporation 12 years ago.

This accolade celebrates a remarkable year for Hemsley Fraser, one in which L&D was challenged beyond anyone’s expectations. In the last 12 months, Hemsley Fraser has reinvented its business model, quickly shifting to fully blended virtual learning, putting its digital learning platform to even greater use, and greatly expanding its virtual training offer. The business set out to prove that a work/learn from home experience could be just as invigorating and connected as in-person development – not just endless PowerPoints online.

CEO, Todd Turner, said, “It has been an incredible year for organisations in all industries, and I am immensely proud of the way that Hemsley Fraser has risen to the challenge and grasped the opportunities. It has been a significant adjustment, not just for our clients and partners, but for our own business too. To be recognised once more, 12 years in a row, in this of all years, is true testament to our continued commitment to organisational learning and engagement.

He continued “Hemsley Fraser are passionate about learning, and the transformative effect that it can have on today’s workplace. We continue to focus on providing the very best learning experiences.

Lynsey Whitmarsh, Managing Director UK, added, “We have been investing and innovating in virtual learning and communications for a number of years, but no one could have predicted just how quickly we would need to adjust to this accelerated trend. Though I would have preferred different circumstances, I am pleased that Hemsley Fraser has been able to demonstrate the value in virtual learning experiences and proud to have helped so many of our clients and partners to adjust to and excel in new ways of working.
