In the area of training, inspiring development
- Creates competencies that lead to tangible improvements in the institution’s day-to-day business operations
- Builds local training capacity that serves as a basis for sustainable staff development
Staff development and systematic training have a major impact on the performance of an institution. At all levels, training has the obvious operational benefit of providing better qualified staff; well-trained employees will have the skills they need to do their jobs properly, thus enabling them to achieve better results in their work. In addition, offering employees training has a strong motivational impact: by allowing them to “grow with their tasks”, i.e. to develop professionally as they take on progressively more challenging roles, it shows them that they have solid opportunities for advancement within the company and makes them welcome such opportunities. This in turn helps strengthen their commitment to their work and their loyalty to the organization.
Our team of experts who provide training services consists of former executives and line managers with extensive operational experience and a strong track record in the area of training and staff development. They have conducted training courses and workshops at various professional levels – induction, specialized technical and middle-manager training – and for employees in many functional areas.
