NURTURING THROUGH TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT
We recognise the vital role of training and development in nurturing engaged employees. The Group encourages its employees’ desire for self-improvement and ensures all training courses and investments in education are founded on clearly identified business needs and objectives at all employment levels.
These objectives are matched with job requirements which are then weighed against carefully developed performance criteria. This approach ensures that all training is optimally configured and implemented to maximise the benefits to both the employee and the Group. Various programmes were organised throughout the year to upgrade the core competencies of our people while creating a talent pool for succession planning. The various programmes include training in technical, management, communication, administration and other soft skills.
We ensure our employees have access to continuous training and development opportunities, as stated in our Company Policy where each employee is to undergo at least two man days of training per year, as well as making training part of their KPI performance evaluation. These training programmes cover areas such as customer service, fire safety, financial management and corporate culture, which are either conducted internally or through external moderators.
In addition to this, we provide capital development opportunities for our employees as well as our vendors to grow and develop.
