Harris Paints re­mains a cham­pion in build­ing ca­reers across the Caribbean

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Harris Paints, the Caribbean Cham­pi­ons of Colour, is con­tin­u­ing its pos­i­tive im­pact as a cham­pion for ca­reer de­vel­op­ment with yet another co­hort of ter­tiary level stu­dents ben­e­fit­ting from the com­pany’s an­nual In­tern­ship and Sum­mer Em­ploy­ment Pro­gramme.

Just over thirty high­achiev­ers be­tween the ages of 16 and 21 were se­lected to par­tic­i­pate in the pro­gramme which is cur­rently be­ing ex­e­cuted across the com­pany’s Caribbean lo­ca­tions.

The in­terns are cur­rently study­ing a wide range of sub­jects in­clud­ing Ac­counts and Eco­nom­ics, Man­age­ment of Busi­ness, Com­put­ers and Aes­thet­ics, and Ecol­ogy and Bi­ol­ogy.

Ian Kenyon, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, Harris Paints, said the goal was to pro­vide stu­dents with an au­then­tic work­ing ex­pe­ri­ence while chal­leng­ing them to lever­age their aca­demic train­ing and skills to add value to the work­place while ad­vanc­ing their per­sonal ca­reer goals.

“Our in­terns work un­der the guid­ance and su­per­vi­sion of our most ex­pe­ri­enced staff mem­bers and they are chal­lenged to reach for Harris Paints’ world-class op­er­a­tional and prod­uct stan­dards. Our ap­proach is one where par­tic­i­pants re­ceive de­tailed train­ing and in­struc­tion, and can un­der­take tasks and projects with a level of re­spon­si­bil­ity akin to our full­time em­ploy­ees,” he said.
