Since closing shop this year, Yazaki Samoa Ltd has left many former employees searching for jobs; a problem that Ah Liki Investments Ltd has come to aid by opening its doors and granting employment to those affected by this closure.
And in its efforts to support the opportunity for both men and women to obtain decent work particularly in the face of company closure, the International Labor organization is funding a continuation of its assistance program in providing Financial Literacy and Soft skills training through the Samoa Chamber of Commerce to Ah Liki’s new recruits.
The Chamber Training team lead by C.E.O. Lemauga Hobart Vaai, is conducting these trainings over a period of four days to build the capacity of 200 new recruits and current employees on Basic Finance skills like budgeting and soft skills.
“The main aim of this training is to up skill employees on how to manage and plan the usage of their personal funds, as the Chamber it is our role to assist our Employers by providing training and encouraging them to make better decisions with their money,” Lemauga said.
“Our training is contextualised and adapted to the Samoa workplace, where we touch on issues such as theft, and our everyday Samoan faalavelave. We are providing them with the skills to make better and smarter decisions with their money.”
The Training is funded via the I.L.O. (International Labour Organisation) assistance programme towards former Yazaki Employees.
