Eurostar International commission Leicestershire’s Workplace Diversity Solutions

Eurostar International has chosen Workplace Diversity Solutions to provide interactive mental health training. Having worked with Eurostar International for several years, Richard Shakespeare and his team, created an eLearning module.

Richard Shakespeare and his team first started working with Eurostar in 2012 by providing their passenger assistance team with disability awareness training ahead of the London 2012 Olympics.

Eurostar has had a continued relationship with the company, including further classroom-based learning sessions and, most recently, by commissioning Workplace Diversity Solutions to deliver an eLearning course on Mental Health.

Richard Shakespeare, Managing Director of Workplace Diversity Solutions said: “Having worked with the company for the last seven years, Eurostar has always been keen to embrace diversity and inclusion and has a long-standing commitment to the learning and development of their employees.

“We are delighted to have continued to support Eurostar by delivering this eLearning module, we wanted to create something engaging that would empower their employees to feel more confident around the important topic of mental health.”

Natasha Scoggins, Safety Assurance and Risk Specialist Deputy Safety Manager Eurostar International Ltd, said: ”Working with Richard and his team has been a delight, the tools used to set up the training and having it all translated for our French colleagues was of no stress to them. We are very pleased with the outcome, it’s got varying learning methods, it is interactive with a mix of voice over, video, quiz, animations and it grips the student to the very end.

“Mental Health has been a focus for Eurostar this year and going forwards and this brilliant online training tool will help reduce the stigma in the workplace, making our environment a better and inclusive place to work for all.“

Richard Shakespeare recently received an award at the Nachural Entrepreneurship Awards for his work in the Diversity & Inclusion field.
