Grow Talent ties up with US-based Designed Learning

HUMAN resources consulting and training firm Grow Talent (GT) has tied up with US-based Designed Learning to conduct the latter's training programmes in India and Sri Lanka.

Though Designed Learning has training solutions for different needs and objectives in its portfolio, the two training programmes taken up by GT are the flawless consulting and stewardship programmes.

The flawless consulting workshops would help companies, especially IT firms, move up the value chain and offer all consulting services to its clients rather than just performing certain processes outsourced to them, according to Mr Shabbir Merchant, Vice-President Consulting Services and International Business, GT.

This would also give the IT firms a new focus and look at business in a holistic way rather than concentrate only on offshoring and application development, he said. Another set of people that would gain through this workshop is HR managers working for different companies, according to GT. Through the workshop, these managers would be able to take the whole organisation as a composite unit and thus be consultants to internal customers, that is, the employees of the organisation, according to Mr Merchant.

He said, "The workshop grooms HR managers to be internal consultants and not just look at recruiting and tackling talent challenges of today's world."

The stewardship training programme is targeted at corporate leaders. Through this programme, business leaders would be able to look at business from a different viewpoint and take their organisation forward with renewed focus, he said.

GT is starting training workshops in Bangalore and Mumbai shortly. It expects to train over 1,000 people in the coming one year through the Designed Learning programmes, with half of them coming from the IT sector.
