What you’ll learn

Rachael Grant is the Global Head of Talent and Culture for the fast-growing Australian healthcare group, GenesisCare. It’s an expert-heavy industry, and the group employs a wide range of technical specialists including radiation therapists, cardiophysiologists, physicists, doctors, nurses, engineers, and more. But prior to Rachael’s arrival, GenesisCare’s development of its experts, like that of many organisations, went no further than a focus on building technical competence.

In early 2019, Rachael and her team piloted their first expertship program, Impact, to develop enterprise skills for technical specialists. In this webinar, Rachael shares an in-depth review of:

  • The initial reaction from the business, and how Talent and Culture built consensus to test the concept

  • Early learnings, first reception, and how the Impact program has since developed into additional formats in the UK and Australia

  • Why future sessions are already heavily oversubscribed

  • What she and her team learned, the return on investment, and what they would do differently.
