ATTITUDE is a disease and workers do not show respect for each other in the workplace, Tasman Building Company human resource training specialist Gordon Adu said.
The company last Friday presented employees who underwent in-house training with certificates in Port Moresby.
Adu said proper work skills were needed so workers performed on time and to the company’s expectation.
He said formal and on the job training to improve their attitude, behaviour and approach to each other were ways of training to impart knowledge and skills to employees to improve their performance.
Sixty employees were selected to undergo training and this was the first lot of 23 trainees who undertook courses in time management, conflict resolution, safety measures, communication skills, negotiation skills, team building and organisation of occupational health and safety.
Tasman managing director Dr Michael Reynolds told the trainees that a certificate was nothing unless they did the work and understood what they did.
Foreman trainee Sere Isaiah said it was always one-way contact but with the course, he learnt there was always a two-way process “where we all now share opi­nions with our fellow workers and bosses”.
