"Using Sales Development Zone to create our own academy gave us the full toolkit for us to be able to deliver our company vision on people development. I don't use the phrase "world class" often but we have certainly found this product to be exactly that. We made some immediate restructuring decisions based on the survey and have already seen an increase in our closing ratios and a significant reduction in our staff turnover. There is a real feeling of inclusion and future opportunity."
