Investing in the training and development of workers is of great importance to the Fiji Ports Corporation Limited giving employees the opportunity to ex­pand their knowledge base, build confidence and enhancing their overall performance that will benefit the company.

Twenty-four officers attended training yesterday the Univer­sity of the South Pacific’s Pacific Technical and Further Education (TAFE) training centre in Walu Bay which also included offic­ers from FPCL’s associate com­pany- Fiji Ports Terminal Limited (FPTL).

Those attending the training course, “Making the Transition to Supervision” have been identi­fied as leaders or future leaders for both organisations. The course is designed to help participants over­come many of the supervisory problems that they will encounter as a workplace leader.

“The training will give the em­ployee a greater understanding of their responsibilities within their role, and in turn build their con­fidence. This confidence will en­hance their overall performance and this can only benefit the com­pany, FPCL training officer Anare Leweniqila said.

He said the investment in train­ing that the company makes proved that FPCL values its em­ployees creating a supportive workplace.

At the end of the training, partic­ipants will be able to adjust to the supervisor’s role with confidence.

“With confidence and efficient improvements, FPCL is on par in achieving its vision in becoming the transhipment hub in the Pa­cific,” Mr Leweniqila said.

FPCL acts as the Port landlord or Port regulator in the country while its associate company, FPTL is responsible for operations sole­ly handling of cargoes in and out of the ports of entry. – FPCL
