This includes the pro­fes­sion focus­ing more on pre­ven­tion of dis­tress and pro­mo­tion of well­be­ing. We want­ed to deliv­er a pro­gram which gave our peo­ple the oppor­tu­ni­ty to learn the skills and knowl­edge nec­es­sary to give them the con­fi­dence to adapt to antic­i­pat­ed and unfore­seen changes in both their pro­fes­sion­al and per­son­al lives. Unlock your Poten­tial’ was launched in ear­ly 2015 as part of Swaab’s learn­ing and devel­op­ment ini­tia­tives. We are very proud of the pro­gram and love hear­ing how it has ben­e­fit­ed our peo­ple in all aspects of their lives. Their suc­cess sto­ries are real­ly reward­ing and I look for­ward to hear­ing more for years to come”, said Swaab Peo­ple & Devel­op­ment Man­ag­er, Bran­ka Macura.
