In an all-inclusive employee upskilling programme aimed at keeping with international standards and having an edge in future challenges, Nigeria’s leading container terminal, APM Terminals Apapa, said that over 100 employees have benefited from more than 18 different capacity building schedules since this year.
It disclosed that it has invested over N50 million so far in 2021 on diverse employee professional skills programmes that cut across all levels – from top management to mid-level managers and down to junior workers.
According to the Terminal Manager, Steen Knudsen, more of such programmes are still underway for the remaining part of 2021 and 2022, as continuous investment in employee development and upskilling are the terminal’s key to success.
“Our employees are one of our five company values,” Knudsen stated. “It is important that we continue to invest in developing and upskilling our organisation to be ready for tomorrow’s challenges.
“In the past year, we have been investing heavily in improving our assets and facilities, and this journey continues.
“We have also begun an investment in training and development as we need to have an organisation which can truly deliver to the international standards of our stakeholder-customers, the Nigerian economy and community, employees and our shareholders.
“The onus is on us all to make good use of the training for our development and continue to impact the business positively.”
