Barbadians are being encouraged to sign up for The Productivity Council???s Getting Everyone to Understand Productivity (GET UP!) half-day workshops which will be held every Tuesday, from March 4 to April 8.
The sessions will take place at the Council???s Baobab Tower, Warrens, St. Michael headquarters, and persons interested in registering should immediately call the Council at 626-9416.
Productivity Officer at the Council, Jannell Arthur, said the seminars are geared towards reinforcing the urgency which all employees, employers and stakeholders need to approach their personal and professional productivity in these challenging times.
???These GET UP! sessions will stress that now, more than ever, the practice of time management, self-monitoring, teamwork, communication and positive work ethic are crucial to limiting any fallout experienced in these difficult times, and can maintain and shore up one’s market position within the current climate,??? Ms. Arthur explained.
According to her, the training is a must for any organisation seeking to assist employees in understanding the relevance of improved productivity and performance. She is of the view that persons who were recently laid-off should also attend the sessions, since they too would benefit from the key tips to be provided.
The GET UP! Programme was held from September to December 2013, and over 550 persons attended the training.
