IDG and HSBC win more prestigious awards at World HR Congress Ceremony

by Katie Laing

Marketing Manager

IDG is delighted to announce that our leadership and cultural development programmes being run in India and China have won more prestigious awards at the World HR Congress, India Human Capital Summit taking place in Mumbai.

Activate, a programme developed for and in collaboration with HSBC, was awarded the “Best Leadership Development Award for Middle Management” and FUSION, also developed for HSBC and which has now been running for 10 years globally, won the prize for the “Best Behavioural Change Programme”.

Both programmes were designed specifically for the client to improve their business performance by developing leadership skills in high potential individuals. A bespoke range of insights and approaches are used to develop the individual’s understanding of the psychology of leadership, in order to provide a skillset that can deliver measurable and sustainable improvements in the organisation as a whole.

Craig Preston, IDG’s Managing Director, said: “We are thrilled that these two outstanding programmes have been recognised in this way. It’s a testament to the fantastic work done by the IDG team both in the UK and importantly also by the IDG India team. Its success is also down to the continued support and proactive involvement of the senior HSBC Leadership who give these programmes such a high priority. Finally, it’s the down to the way the delegates throw themselves into the programmes and ensure that they get the best out of them.”

King Abdullah II of Jordan is an example of inspirational leadership in challenging circumstances.
