Multinational companies investing heavily in training for a competitive advantage

Posted on Posted in Insider

Career First Institute highlights the critical importance of delivering learning programs that matter and translating potential into expertise.

Cebu, Philippines August 22, 2017– Many Cebu-based multinational companies are into supporting their employees in their efforts to receive professional certifications, and much more have some form of formalized employee training program.

These organizations believe that they value their workforce enough to invest in them and that whatever new skills their workforce gains will benefit the business as a whole in terms of better customer service, healthier work safety practices, and improved productivity.

And when it comes to rendering the best employee training services, Career First is the go-to provider for many organizations in Cebu. The successfully-concluded Leadership Circle Forum held last August 17th and 18th is just one example of how organizations acknowledge the importance of training their front- and back-of-the-house personnel and rely on Career First’s tested programs to achieve effective results.

In July, Career First held the Talent Development for Global Workforce workshop with a multinational Software as a Service (SaaS) technology developer and provider. The sessions included orientation on business writing, customer service excellence, critical thinking, and problem solving.

“We always try to deliver a tailor-fit approach with our training programs based on the needs of the client,” says Career First Institute Director Ron Cocoba.

“In short, we don’t just train for the sake of training. We train for people to be effective. To attain this, we make sure that our programs are designed and implemented well. Every training program has a clear purpose and measurable goal,” Ron adds.

Valued clients

Most of Career First’s clients are headquartered or operating in Cebu. Over the years, however, the company has serviced a wide-range of client types, including organizations in the fields of construction and development; BPOs; manufacturing; healthcare; information technology, to name a few.

What sets Career First aside from other companies in the same line of business is its professional but friendly atmosphere.

“In Career First, I learn a lot of things – not only stuff related to my work, but also fundamentals like interacting with people of different personalities and cultures. Training always feels like a big, friendly family gathering,” remarks a trainee who participated in the Leadership Circle Forum in August.
