Government has determined that the Directors of state-owned enterprises need to be trained in a number of areas.
This disclosure from Labour Minister, Colin Jordan, who reveals that the training will begin in short order.
He says the decision has been taken because a few directors of statutory boards have not been demonstrating best practices in leading their organizations.
Minister Jordan made the comments during the Congress of Trade Unions Staff Associations of Barbados Biennial Delegates’ Conference.
He also used the occasion to announce that more Barbadians can now benefit from the Commonwealth of Learning’s Coursera Workplace Recovery Programme.
So far, over 6000 people have signed up for the free online courses offered by some of the top universities across the world.
