Who, what & why


Vista’s blended learning programmes provide you with practical, fun and ‘real-world’ people management training, delivered by learning experts, employment lawyers or HR professionals.

We cover a broad spectrum of skills, including proactive people management, driving performance, tackling difficult conversations and our flagship dignity at work programme.

You can choose from a selection of courses that are ‘ready to go’, or we can work together to build a bespoke programme for your organisation.

How We Do It

We have a dedicated team of lawyers, HR professionals and learning experts designing and delivering relatable and long-lived training to managers and HR professionals. We can deliver bespoke, or ‘ready to go’ people management training programmes depending on your goals.

By using accelerated learning techniques, 360-degree feedback, personality profile instruments, one to one coaching, our suite of re-constructions of real Vista experiences, alongside digital learning content – this learning experience sticks.

We never use PowerPoint, instead we produce workbooks that delegates can refer back to. This helps your training session to be full of life, and for your team to focus on, and participate in, trainer-led discussion exercises.

In every workshop, we strive to give your team members a real-world look at the issues, potential consequences and help them to relate to a real life working environment.


The Vista team make a number of adjustments to ensure our training is accessible for everyone. As part of your training design we will discuss the method of delivery and its suitability for your team. If you would like to request full details of our accessibility policy, please contact us.
