Finance 3

Are you investing in the development of your staff? Latest research shows that nurturing positive employee relationships is no different or less important than cultivating loyal customers. Besides remuneration, employees want other intangible things from their employers: purpose, responsibilities, autonomy, flexibility and opportunity for innovation. They also yearn for employers that focus on their personal development and well-being, including employer-funded professional and personal development programmes.

i-Fundi offers high quality, accredited skills programmes that develop critical competencies to help staff and managers excel at work and in their personal lives. Programmes can be taken individually – delivered in-house or on campus – or attended progressively as part of the Further Education and Training Certificate: Generic Management level 4 qualification programme.

We invite you to take a look at some of our popular programmes and contact us today for more information on in-house delivery or campus attendance.
