IN its effort to educate and empower its employees, Outrigger on the Lagoon spent about $58,000 annually on training its staff.
Recently, a group of workers successfully completed a workshop to equip its managers on discipline and passion that provide tools for change and growth for individuals and organisations.
The staff members completed the world renowned Franklin Covey 7 Habits of highly effective people training.
The training was conducted by Franklin Covey training facilitator Rosie Aitkens from Australia.
Based on the principles of Dr Stephen Covey, the training presents an approach to being effective in attaining goals by aligning oneself to seven habits for personal and professional life skills.
Resort general manager Peter Hopgood said the resort believed in developing a strong management by investing in solid foundational training for its staff.
"A total of 66 managers and supervisors have undergone seven habits training and this is reflected in why we are one of the top resorts in Fiji," Mr Hopgood said.
"We invest about $58,000 a year on this training because it is so effective for our staff and our resort.
"Seeing our staff transform from very good managers to great managers after they have taken this training is very rewarding for them and our resort, and I recommend other businesses in Fiji to invest in this training because it is life changing and personally rewarding."
Outrigger Fiji first conducted the seven habits training in 2011 and last year.
Apart from personal developments, the resort has been instrumental in educating school students and the members of the community on various skills and development training.
