What is The Manager's Toolkit?



The Manager’s Toolkit® is a digital hub of on demand resources designed to help your managers develop their skills, take control of their personal growth and boost their performance – any time, anywhere.

The Toolkit includes 30 well researched and continuously updated management topics, each with practical advice and immediately applicable tools for dealing with specific management issues. It uses a mix of content, videos, infographics and downloadable tools that your managers will use, love and apply.

“The Manager’s Toolkit has given us an excellent on-demand solution for our managers to learn and grow.”

Donna Hannah, Head of HR – Organisational Development & Support – Hovis
