As part of Leema’s HRD programme, the staff has undergone an intense and comprehensive 14-day training programme at their manufacturing plant in Dompe.
The training sessions were conducted by Ad Maaswinkel from the Netherlands, a high-profile 40-year veteran in the industry. Maaswinkel has discussed the global technological changes and advancements, productivity enhancements, efficiency improvements in labour and machinery and future challenges of the industry, etc., during the training session. The main focus of the programme was to identify and improve the skills and competence of the technical staff of Leema.
Having understood that the training must be an integral part of the organisation’s culture and the organisation’s future, Channa Wijesekara has invited the trainer to assist in upgrading the knowledge and skills of the staff. The management is under the strong impression that when training is seen as an ongoing and constantly evolving process, employees are more willing to participate thus enhancing the productivity. An employee, who is trained, will be more responsive, more open and more motivated towards day-to-day work.
