SP Brewery committed to developing human resources


SOUTH Pacific Brewery Ltd, an operating company of Heineken, is committed to its human resource and does this by investing in training and development opportunities for its employees.
Corporate affairs manager John Nilkare said this during the launch of phase two of their recruitment drive in Port Moresby last Friday.
New managing director Ed Weggemans said human capital was the most important aspect of any organisation. “You can invest a lot of money in a new building, getting the most sophisticated machinery and equipment but if you do not have the people to operate them and the quality as well, then all you have done is spent a lot of money,” he said.
Following the successful roll out of its “Go Places” campaign on social media in 2017, SP Brewery was now rolling out phase two of the same recruitment drive, titled “Go places 2.0”.
Nilkare said “Go places 2.0” was part of Heineken’s employee branding proposition that showcased SP Brewery as an employer of choice in PNG.
The company launched its “Go places 2.0” recruitment drive at the Brew Kettle in Port Moresby.
“The campaign focuses on our graduate development programme that complete short term assignments (STA),” Nilkare said.
“We have recently graduated our fourth batch of trainees under our graduate development programme and brought in 13 aspiring young leaders into the programme this year.
“Over recent years, more employees have gone on a STA in various countries and we have hosted a good number of colleagues from around Asia Pacific region.
These countries include Sri Lanka, Thailand, Timor Leste, Indonesia, Vietnam and Mozambique.”
