Global performance improvement solutions provider GP Strategies Corporation recently announced that it has been selected by HSBC as its Managed Services Integrator to provide global learning services. Under the multi-year agreement, GP Strategies expects to support HSBC’s learning function transition to a more flexible and commercial operating model. As a strategic partner, GP Strategies will help HSBC drive global consistency and efficient ways of working in concert with the effective management of operational risks, enabling the learning function to become more responsive to the needs of HSBC employees and managers.
HSBC, one of the world’s largest banking and financial services organizations, serves customers worldwide from around 6,600 offices in over 80 countries and territories in Europe, the Asia-Pacific region, North and Latin America, and the Middle East and North Africa. GP Strategies’ UK operations have provided learning services to HSBC for over ten years and will be leading on the new opportunity. The agreement brings the long-standing relationship between the two companies to a new level of collaboration on a broader range of global learning initiatives.
“In the summer of 2012, HSBC began the search for a ‘competent, enthusiastic and cost-focused strategic partner’ that demonstrated the ‘characteristics, capabilities and credentials needed for the task,’ said Douglas Sharp, President of GP Strategies. “They were thorough in their due diligence. We were tested and retested against competitors. At the end of a rigorous process, we were selected for the work. HSBC has placed their trust in GP Strategies and the strength of our global learning services.”
