BEIGE Capital set to groom youth for job market

BEIGE Capital, a leading non- bank financial institution in the country, has inducted another batch of young people into its career development hub known as BEIGE Academy.

The company early this year rolled out a comprehensive program as part of its corporate strategy to develop a solid human capital to maintain its leadership on the market.

At a special ceremony held at the academy’s office in Accra, over 100 young people were ushered into the academy to undergo intensive training to prepare them for the company and other companies on the job market.

The inductees will go through 9 months of intensive training program in time management, corporate etiquette, grooming, effective communication, handling procrastination and self confidence building techniques.

The training which is in three trimesters is tailored to identify and develop Ghanaian youth.

From this group of trainees, the BEIGE Group will build an army of quality talents to meet  its human resources needs.

During the training the inductees will be dispatched to various strategic units of BEIGE Capital where they will go through on job practical work.

However, they will be expected to write tests at the end of every trimester after performance appraisals.

“After the 9 months, the BEIGE Capital will put you on a specific training program which eventually leads to a supervisory role in the group” Abena A. Adu Larbi  Center Manager of the BEIGE Academy told the inductees.

Speaking at the ceremony Board Chairman of The BEIGE Group, Professor Stephen Adei  noted with regret that it has become difficult to find young educated young people who are reliable, disciplined and hard working.

He added that the group has refused to join those who criticize young for their perceived lack of competence.

“That is why you have been selected among the best to be trained for the future,” he told the inductees. He asked them to utilize the opportunity well since not every youth has been fortunate to be selected.
