PeakMade Real Estate (“Peak”), a leading diversified real estate services company, has launched Growspace, an internal micro-learning platform focused on growth, development, and belonging in partnership with Blue Ocean Brain and PeakMade’s Diversity and Inclusion Council, the Peak Link.
“Working with the team at PeakMade to create a space for their employees to learn & grow at work has been fantastic. The team is so passionate about Growspace and it shows,“ said Marcy Osborn, Client Success Manager at Blue Ocean Brain.
Growspace offers courses ranging from DEI topics like confirmation bias, celebrating diversity, and understanding intersectionality to leadership lessons like empathy in the workplace, cultivating compassion, and empowering your teams.
“This platform gives us an opportunity to learn, grow, & evolve as individuals who can positively influence our teams & communities. We can make an impact and it starts with each of us making the commitment,” commented Jennifer Hill, Chief People Officer and Executive Sponsor of The Peak Link Council.
Featured lessons are highlighted every month within the platform to keep conversations relevant to current events and diverse celebrations like Juneteenth, Pride Month, AAPI Month and more.
PeakMade recently reported that over 120 managers and leaders have accessed over 400 lessons and completed over 240 brain exercises within the first week of launch.
