The Unijet Group plc is one of the UK’s largest and longest established travel and aviation based groups, with a reputation for providing high quality, excellent value holidays and flights. The company now encompasses five wholly owned operating divisions covering tour operators, leisure car rental, aviation broking, a charter airline and an air freight operation.

Rapid growth, both organic and through acquisition, led to a requirement to train and develop Unijet managers to support this expansion.

LDL was invited to design and deliver a training solution for senior managers focusing on how to relay a vision and influence behaviour through other managers in a widely dispersed organisation. More recently appointed managers were trained in core management techniques including objective setting, delegating, coaching and performance management.

Forty managers attended the initial courses over a two month period. The training was supported by LDL’s involvement in the re-design of a competency based performance management process.
