Morgan McKinley pushes boundaries with global e-learning for staff
Global professional recruiter Morgan McKinley has formed an innovative commercial alliance with professional services firm Deloitte and award-winning industry experts Recruitment Juice to launch the first e-learning platform in the global recruitment sector.  The resource will combine the knowledge of high profile business leaders and recognised industry experts with its own internal specialists.
Employees across Morgan McKinleys 24 offices globally will now reap the benefits of MM1 Academy, a new best-practice professional training portal developed specifically for the firm.
The online platform is tailored to each user and provides extensive learning modules and role plays ranging from essential recruitment skills to high level management strategy. Pro Tips from Morgan McKinley experts personalise the programme and provide commentary and advice on realistic, day-to-day issues in the recruitment field.
The innovative e-learning professional development platform will provide Morgan McKinley staff worldwide with a standardised tool to assist their career progression.
The staff development programme is broken into two distinct parts: MM1 Academy which is focused entirely on developing and improving recruitment skills from graduate to executive level and MM1 Leadership, which provides education and support on leadership issues that span team building to high level strategy.
MM1 Academy was developed as a joint venture between Morgan McKinley and award-winning training body, Recruitment Juice. It represented a significant milestone for both companies as well as being a major, long-term investment by Morgan McKinley in its human capital, it is the first bespoke training platform Recruitment Juice has created for a firm.
The MM1 Leadership programme is designed to add value to all levels of the business and includes an experiential resource for managers and directors. Developed and hosted by Deloitte, the Leadership Academy streams up-to-the-minute video training from world-famous business leaders and reknowned business schools, allowing users to participate in challenging workshops and webinars, and connect with peers as part of a global forum.
Leading the way in innovative e-learning, MM1 Leadership is also designed to interact with delegates through push-casting tailored content to their smartphones and BlackBerrys, and even has its own iPhone application
Morgan McKinley is the first recruitment company in the world to partner with the Deloitte Leadership Academy.
