Corporate Trainings

I am pleasantly surprised by the full support our managers are giving us regarding our professional and even personal growth. I say this because from my previous department, I barely had the opportunity to attend trainings and seminars. Not that the management discourages us, it was just that, asking permission was a bit of a challenge due to the demands of work. Also, we had to coordinate with other colleague to ensure that no one was on leave on the date I would attend my training. Unfortunately, there were times when the only offered available dates were on the times my other colleagues were on leave. I always end up sacrificing my chance to learn and develop.

The case now is very different in my new department. In a span of 8 months, I have already done 5 instructor-led trainings with my fellow colleagues and bosses. I am not even counting the online courses I have completed during that time.  I have never seen so much support from the management in my previous work experience. I am overwhelmed in a positive way because I love attending trainings, seminars and workshops. I love to learn more and acquire skills which I can use in my day-to-day tasks in the office and also, something to leverage my chances of promotion.

I am grateful that the opportunities are being presented to us in a silver platter. The one I just attended yesterday was a "mandatory" training arranged by my boss. Everyone in the team was present, including our big boss who did everything to ensure that all of us get our fair-share in learning and developing. Our whole unit was closed for the day while we acquire more knowledge in the workforce. Closing a unit for a day rarely happens in a company but our management deemed it necessary for our career growth and well-being. I think that's a very altruistic gesture from the management side and it's not left unappreciated.

And as of this writing, there is another training in the offing that the whole unit will attend to as instructed by our big boss. My quota is already filled to the brim!

Imagine, 5 trainings in 8 months in my new department as opposed to the very few trainings I had during the past 8 years in my previous department. Now that's what I call healthy working environment.

  9. You're lucky you got a Boss that's very concerned for the professional growth of his subordinates. Not all organizations have that kind of culture.

    As for the nature of my job, we do have trainings/ seminars once or twice a year. However, it will rely so much on the budget availability. I am the one in-charge of the budget so I always make sure we do have sufficient budget for the purpose. Employees' growth is very important for us not to stagnate.

    Kudos to your Boss and to the rest of the members of the working force!
