Event description


A Common Interest Work Group presented by SIRF Roundtables SA.

Attendance is free for people from member companies of SIRF Roundtables in SA.

Finding and hiring good skilled tradespeople can be a challenge. Keeping them can be even harder. Most skilled trades want to do more than just maintain any Tickets or Licenses that they have. They want to improve their skills, become better at their jobs, and have some recognition for their increasing value to the organisation.

As the world gets more and more technologically advanced, companies either need more and more technically capable employees, or have to add the cost of outsourcing tasks that are too complicated or require a lot of specialization. But even when a decision is made to outsource some complicated or technical service, organisations will benefit by getting their own tradespeople up to certain level of understanding, or else the company is at risk of being taken advantage of as their options are unknown or not understood.

Technical Training

How does your company navigate these tricky waters? Want to know how others are managing their training and skill development? With limited time and budget for training, maybe you want to discuss how to get the most bang for your buck? Join your peers as we discuss these and other crucial questions!

About SIRF Rt Common Interest Work Groups

All SIRF Rt events are designed to provide a safe environment for open discussion with peers on the topic of interest they are working on, in and around. SIRF Rt Common Interest Work Groups (CWIG’s) provide the best forum for peer-to-peer learning and best practice sharing. Participants are asked to bring something for ‘show and tell’ about the topic of the day as it applies at their organisation – it could be a full presentation, a few photos, a brief descriptions of their current efforts, a couple of charts or graphs – anything that will help improve the discussion or other participants’ understanding of your workplace. After each company shares the deeper discussion follows, guided by our practiced facilitators.
