Greetings from Edinburgh, Scotland!

    Our group had the amazing experience of touring the Royal Bank of Scotland.  This fit perfectly within the curriculum of our International Learning Experience through the College of Education and Human Development.
The content focus of this trip encompasses Leadership Development Across Cultures.  We began the trip with a bus ride down to the headquarters of RBS in which we were led on a walking tour in while our hosts discussed the various measures in regards to Human Resource Development they have taken within their business to improve customer service while creating, recruiting, and maintaining first rate employees in the field. 

    As we walked through the various offices and shared spaces, we were immersed in their vision and culture as the building was a flurry of activity and it was literally written on the walls.  As we ended the walking tour we were guided through lush grounds to the RBS Business Campus.  Our class had the opportunity to view a presentation on RSB’s vision of the future as it relates to Human Resource Development and their internal leadership recruitment and training programs.

    As I look through the various photographs from our journey, I’m extremely thankful to have been chosen to go on this trip to place myself outside of the norm and see how HRD practices are both similar and different than those in the US.
