Kathmandu: Hotel Annapurna recently collaborated with Excellence @ Workplace, a Corporate Training module offered by the Art of Living Foundation for institutions, with the aim to build an ethical environment and a work culture based on a sense of belonging and caring for all levels of its staff.
A total of 288 senior executives, supervisors and staff of Hotel Annapurna participated in the training program titled, “iExcel, iLead” to empower and nurture the entire hotel workforce.
“In keeping with our company vision, we invest first in our human resources to bring the best opportunities in training packages to our employees for their overall wellbeing,” said Shreejana Rana, Executive Director of Hotel Annapurna, at a program organized on Monday.
During the program, Rana was rewarded with the certificate of excellence for Hotel Annapurna by Art of Living President Santosh Sharma for the hotel’s recent completion of the program. Rana talked about Hotel Annapurna’s vision of focusing on empowering its human resources and provide a holistic training opportunity for its senior management and staff to not only help them improve their technical and professional skills, but also help them to de-stress.
Neeva Pradhan, International Corporate Trainer of the Art of Living Foundation, said that the typical challenges faced by business leaders whilst stewarding their growth are competition, conducive government policies and banking regulations, matching economies of scale, payment and credit issues and most importantly attracting and nurturing talented and skilled workforce.
“These challenges cause a lot of stress that robs the business owner or top management from living happily and enjoying the moment. We believe that all the above challenges can easily be combated and a plan to leap frog into the future can be made while maintaining an unwavering smile,” Pradhan said, adding that the iExcel, iLead programs have been well accepted by leaders in the industry to be very beneficial and an eye opener to understanding people, employees and business in the bigger context of appreciating life.
A 18 hour workshop that can be offered in 3 to 4 days, the “iExcel iLead” program helps participants achieve work-life balance, manage work stress, cope with uncertainty, enhance teamwork and effective communication, foster creativity and innovation, among others.
During the program, Hotel Annapurna felicitated its employees and shared the overall feed-back regarding the training experience from all levels of its staff. TNN
