The Management Development Scheme (MDS) is a skills development program provided by FinCorp. The main aim of the scheme is to provide the opportunity for high performing staff to reach management and possibly senior management roles.
The scheme covers approximately 10% of staff, which have shown the level of performance, experience and qualifications. Each participant on the scheme will have individual development plans completed to ensure his/her skills and experience are broad based and that a higher understanding of the total FinCorp’s operations is obtained.
This year 2016, the high performing supervisory staffs accepted on to MDS to receive a 2-year plan, Gela Nou’leva, Martina Toulogu and Theresa Kapera who will be enrolled to do business and management courses accordingly.
Manager Operations Support Group, Gialea Matainaho and Infrastructure & Technical Manager, Morris Namono who are both on the program are currently attending Divine Word University Flexible Learning Centre here at the POM Campus towards completing a Bachelor’s Degree in Management by the end of 2017 and will graduate in 2018. Whilst Human Resource Supervisor Gimani Arua is on her way to completing her Diploma in Management program from PNG Institute of Banking & Business Management this year.
Congratulations! To Mr. Simon Anania who graduated recently with a Diploma in Banking from PNG Institute of Banking & Business Management. Simon Anania joined the program in 2010, has been on the program since then due to external and internal circumstances which were beyond our control. However, he has now finally completed his Diploma Program successfully and graduated. In a separate memo this is what Mr. Anania said; “I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, the Managing Director, and Mr. John Ovia (GMHRA) for the opportunity to be part of the Management Development Scheme, which has resulted in me graduating with a Diploma in Banking certificate from the Institute of Banking and Business Management on the 26th of May, 2016.
