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.”
