The aim of this special pathway is to ensure those who have successfully completed PCGI can fast track their progression into the AMII framework.” She added that “collaborations and customized programmes are still the best option for companies, especially during challenging times like these. We must ensure effective solutions are offered to the staff force, so that everyone remains connected and engaged, and what better way to do this other than through continuous learning.”
On a similar note, Mr Steve Crouch, Country President of Chubb highlighted the importance of continuous upskilling to “improve the way we do business and serve customers.” He added that “learning is a journey that never ends… this new roadmap will further support our (Chubb’s) talent development agenda that is to upskill our employees to improve customer experience and to drive growth.”
