Caribbean’s leading retailer of the world’s best brands in electronics, furniture and appliances, Courts hosted its first ever “Employee Life Skills Open Day” on Tuesday January 13th at the company’s head office in Bois D’Orange.
This initiative used a dynamic and educational approach to teaching basic life skills and focused on money management, academic and vocational opportunities and stress management. The “Life Skills Open Day” featured professionals from the following organizations: Bank of St. Lucia, Monroe College, the National Enrichment and Learning Unit and Wellness Innova- tors. The event, open to all staff, was one of the learning and development opportunities introduced by the company’s Human Capital Department in an effort to set employees on the right track to achieving their life-long goals.
The company’s Learning and Development Manager for St. Lucia and St. Kitts, Janelle Joseph, said, “The Learning and Development team at Unicomer is passionate about the development of the organization’s employees. We already provide top of the line training to our employees via our education centre, the Unicomer Institute of Learning – UIL, and we develop interventions which allow for employee development on both personal and professional levels.”
The company is pleased to have received support from the four organizations who contributed significantly to the success of the event. The event was widely appreciated by the company’s employees who made it their duty to participate in the day-long activity. They were satisfied with the information provided and many made appointments with the professionals to seek further advice.
The company’s Director for Human Capital, Mrs Julie Dantzie, added, “This initiative was held during an important period when many employees are still making plans for the New Year. We hope that the information that is gained today contributes significantly to the achievement of these New Year’s resolutions. The management team of Unicomer Group believes that this move was a step in the right direction towards the accomplishment of short and long term goals for our valued staff.”
