Relatus, a leading external training provider, has been recognized for its exceptional services by winning the Learning Solution of the Year (external) award at the Institute for Learning & Performance’s 2023 Asia Pacific Learning Impact Awards on March 9th. This award highlights their dedication to developing soft, social, and emotional skills that align with career and business outcomes to ensure success.
As technology advances, machines are becoming more capable of performing tasks that previously required human skills. This development has made it clear that soft skills, social skills, emotional intelligence, and networking skills are the future skills that will set individuals apart in the business world, particularly in the technical industry.
Relatus CEO, Julia Palmer, expressed her excitement by saying, “Developing relational capabilities to support people’s individual talents can only accelerate results and lead to better outcomes. Refining how we interact, engage, and grow our networks is key to a more successful future.”
Relatus won the award as an external training provider to UNSW, where it worked collaboratively with academic researchers to facilitate a customized Relationship Networking Program (RNP). The program aimed to help participants develop better relationships and become more intentional and proactive about their networking.
According to Relatus’s research, 84% of people do not have a strategy to network and manage relationships, which is a missed opportunity for individuals to build connections that can lead to new opportunities and career growth. Their award-winning programs are dedicated to achieving learning transfer and inspiring behavioral change in participants.
The Director of Knowledge Exchange at UNSW Sydney stated, “Gone are the days when deep technical and subject matter expertise alone are sufficient for success.” Companies are now looking for employees who can collaborate effectively, communicate well, and build strong relationships with clients, customers, and colleagues. These skills cannot be automated, and they are increasingly in demand.
Investing in human skills and relational capabilities should be a top priority for technical professionals. Combining technical skills with soft skills, social skills, emotional intelligence, and networking skills is the key to growing an organization’s competitive advantage. When technical talent is more confident and comfortable to engage, they will gain a human advantage in business.
Relatus’s Relationship Networking Program is the signature program offered to clients and is the culmination of decades of research and experience. The award-winning program is aimed at technical professionals, inspiring them to develop their human skills to help them in their careers. The program is designed to provide technical professionals with the skills they need to succeed in today’s rapidly changing and highly competitive environment.
Relatus’s RNP is designed to help participants develop relationship-building skills, including active listening, storytelling, and emotional intelligence. The program also focuses on networking, helping participants understand how to build and leverage their networks effectively. By using a variety of teaching methods, including experiential learning, interactive workshops, and self-directed learning, Relatus’s programs ensure that participants can apply what they have learned to their real-world situations.
In conclusion, Relatus’s winning of the Learning Solution of the Year (external) award at the Institute for Learning & Performance’s 2023 Asia Pacific Learning Impact Awards highlights their commitment to developing the soft skills, social skills, emotional intelligence, and networking skills that are increasingly important in today’s business world. Investing in human skills and relational capabilities is critical for technical professionals, and Relatus’s Relationship Networking Program provides the skills necessary to succeed in today’s rapidly changing and highly competitive environment.
