When it first opened its doors in 1963, the University of York had just 230 students and a handful of staff. It has since gone on to become one of the world's leading universities with a reputation as an academic powerhouse. The success of the University of York means its staff numbers have swelled. Today, it employs more than 4,000 staff ‒ a number that continues to grow. In order to invest in their ongoing education and development, the HR team needed to focus on critical safety and compliance training to keep staff, students and the public safe across the University estate. It also needed a system that allowed them to monitor staff training and development continuously to ensure all staff was learning the correct procedures to comply with their roles. With every employee able to realise their potential, the University lives and breathes its mantra of learning excellence. Why Cornerstone Allan Aikman, Learning and Development Manager, University of York invoked the spirit of Machiavelli to describe the challenge of changing training systems. "There is nothing more difficult to carry out, nor more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to handle, than to initiate a new order of things," he said.
