The learning event is a combination of both classroom learning sessions, company visits, and table talk conversation with outstanding organizations.
The first day of the program was the table talk conversation with outstanding organizations and a company visit. In the morning, the table talk conversation discussed about best practices in engaging leaders in their organization in relation to the Investors in People standard. Resource speakers were from Q2HR Solutions and TaskUs.
In the afternoon was the site visit at SGS Philippines, Inc., chosen by APRACA-CENTRAB’s Managing Director Lecira “Bing” Juarez.
