Building the S-RM Academy lets us consolidate training, learning and development, nurture and support each other to achieve our full potential.
We continue to invest in S-RM’s growth, and transparency about our financial performance means our people see us scaling sustainably. Despite the pandemic and economic slowdown, we continue to recruit talented people with a range of expertise that allows us to expand and enhance the services we offer clients. We are welcoming new clients and a wider variety of work. We are investing in technology that fosters innovation and helps our people solve problems more effectively. We are investing in the learning, development and career growth of every colleague with the launch of S-RM Academy.

Ensuring conversations about growth are part of how we manage performance. Our investment in physical, mental and financial wellbeing benefits supports people’s personal needs. We are consolidating technical training and new joiner, leadership and management learning and development into four cohesive programmes within our new Academy. Professional development starts from our first day at S-RM and supports us at each stage of our career. Everyone already has access to our comprehensive mentoring programme, to LinkedIn Learning, and can apply for discretionary training budget or further education support.
Colleagues at S-RM were instrumental in the evolution of our values two years ago. We talked with all levels of the business, with people in all our international offices and every team. They helped us identify the great behaviour that was already attracting talented people and a wide range of clients to S-RM, understand what would be needed in future, and build on both to help drive our growth and success. Drawing on things that have been fundamental to S-RM for several years, our values remain core to how we recognise achievements and reward performance.
