We develop our staff: Training and development
PLC recognises that its employees are the most valuable assets to our future success. Through performance management processes, the Company aims to ensure that all employees know what is expected of them and that they possess the necessary skills, knowledge, values and experience to achieve optimal performance.
All employees must acquire new skills, knowledge and competencies to meet the changing requirements of their current and future assignments, for career development as well as in order to be proactive in meeting the challenges posed by an ever changing environment. It is PLC’s policy to invest in relevant forums, training and workshops for staff to obtain and maintain the skills and knowledge needed to accomplish PLC’s mission, vision and objectives.
Based on individual and organisational requirements, systematic orientation programs and training is given to new recruits. Annual performance appraisals are used to identify training needs on an individual basis. Suitable employees can obtain higher educational reimbursement schemes, professional membership reimbursements, as well as external and foreign training.
External training opportunities enhance the knowledge, skills and attitudes of PLC staff, while leadership development, managerial skills, presentation skills, coaching and mentoring approaches are used.
