NOCN leads skills workshop at World Productivity Congress in Bahrain

On Tuesday 4th April Graham Hasting-Evans, Group Managing Director at NOCN, will travel to Bahrain to deliver a workshop at the 18th World Productivity Congress event.

The Congress has been hosted 17 times in several countries since 1969, each time attracting a distinguished group of delegates and leading experts from around the globe who bring a breadth of experience to shape future governmental approaches to productivity development.

Within his workshop, Graham will discuss how to develop a productivity skills strategy within the context of a National Skills Policy and frameworks, which might exist in an individual country. Touching on the various reforms the Government in the UK is currently implementing, including the new style apprenticeships and technical education, Graham will explain upcoming skills challenges, in particular the productivity gap, as the UK moves towards Brexit.

The workshop session will involve breaking delegates into groups, encouraging them to work through key issues and how to address them in their individual countries using the accumulated knowledge of the group. Through this activity, Graham hopes that participants will be able to set out the key skills which need to be developed by managers in order to increase productivity in their businesses.
