Staff development and motivation

by Spectrum Uganda

Our Staff Development Program offers a variety of workshops to enhance the professional and personal development of Spectrum Uganda Staff. We are committed to improving the professional competence and personal wellbeing of our staff. This benefits each member of staff, by enabling them to make individual progress and gain desirable qualifications. It also helps the organisation by providing an increasingly competent and motivated team.

Our employees take the initiative and step outside their comfort zones to build skills and knowledge to advance the work we do. We believe in promoting from within and developing future leaders.

Whether it is managing client projects to achieve development impact, contributing to new organisational efforts, building technical expertise, or effectively leading teams to accomplish project goals, we offer numerous opportunities for staff to develop the skills, behaviours, and knowledge required to be a successful professional.

In addition to a robust internal training course curriculum and a generous external training fund, a substantial portion of the critical knowledge and skills necessary to perform effectively is learned through on-the-job training. We encourage staff are also encouraged to take on-the-job shadowing opportunities to learn from more experienced staff in the field and prepare to accept billable assignments themselves, to participate in internal job rotations to contribute to and learn from other core functions in the company and to lead and participate in corporate initiatives as opportunities arise.

Finally, our technical practices provide an opportunity for staff to network and develop specific areas of technical expertise. Supporting employee growth and development during employees’ careers is part of what makes Spectrum Uganda an ideal place to work.
