The knowledge gained during the economic change period will be very valuable for future business development, said the Director-General of the Employers’ Confederation of Latvia (ECL) Elīna Egle, adding that the ECL Business Resource Centre offers employers free training programs.

Since the spring of 2010, more than 300 employers – entrepreneurs and local government representatives – have used this opportunity to raise their professionalism. The ECL also calls for employers to participate next year in training, which will take place in Jelgava, Tukums, Valmiera, Smiltene, Livani and in Riga.

Employers in Riga have showed the greatest interest in training programs; therefore, the ECL specifically invites regional employers to free some time for learning.

The ECL Business Resource Centre, in cooperation with highly qualified sector experts and professionals, has developed and offers to acquire three training programs – Bilateral and Trilateral Social Dialogue and Human Resource Management, Local Government Development Management and Public–Private Partnership Promotion, and Business Development and Corporate Social Responsibility. These programs have been created on the basis of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) methodology and the Latvian experts’ experience, considering Latvia’s situation and specifics. The training includes lectures with open-type discussions on the training subject, including round-table discussions with decision makers and opinion leaders of particular sector.
