Corporate Business and Enterprise

Corporate Business and Enterprise is based in the Faculty of Business & Management and provides a central point from which external organisations and companies can access the staff, services and resources of the Faculty.

Whether you are looking for new insights on critical workplace issues or collaboration on your long-term training and development needs, we have a range of business-focused services to help you enhance the capabilities of your workforce.

We have particular strengths in:

  • Leadership and management development across all staff levels
  • Public sector workforce development, including multi-professional and multi-agency collaboration
  • Supporting change and the growth of organisational capability and capacity

We work closely with Faculty colleagues in Chester Business School and the Centre for Work Related Studies to ensure we put in place the programme and expertise that works best for your organisation.

Typically, our approach is to:

  • Understand and analyse your workplace issue or development need
  • Provide you with a critical review and options for the way forward
  • Create a tailored programme of development for individuals or groups of staff
  • Put in place a team that is focused on your objectives and benchmarks
  • Monitor and evaluate progress and business impact

We understand that innovation, flexibility and business impact are important to you, so we offer many different approaches to learning and development including on-line learning, 360 degree feedback, action learning facilitation, learning sets, role play and forums with expert practitioners and academics.

We can work with you remotely, from our University campuses in Chester and Warrington and on your own premises, depending on the project and the preferred learning approach.
