Global Talent Deployment with International Training Program
As FENC strategizes for global deployment and expands its international base, there is a pressing need on cultivating global talents. However, what constitutes a global talent is not merely the language skill, but also multi-cultural competence and demonstration of leadership and management skills in a multi-cultural setting. Thus, with language skills as the core, we construct the International Talent Program to cultivate multi-cultural competence and creating a talent pool in line with international trends.
- Courses on second languages
Participants who are selected by each unit take TOEIC to evaluate their English proficiency. The course content is then customized accordingly based on proficiency level and business needs. Sixty-one participants from Taiwan and 32 from China attended the 1-year business English program, which is designed to focus on common office scenarios, such as international social etiquette, business writing as well as conference and presentation techniques. Participants may apply the course content in real-life scenario. A 16-hour workshop is held quarterly for participants to practice with one another. In addition, 15 participants attended the Japanese program and 8 enrolled in the Spanish program. By providing multiple learning resources, the Company’s training program is improving staff’s language skills and eliminating language barriers.
- Online courses from international universities
To cultivate elite leaders who can thrive in a global environment and facilitate effective communication with international counterparts, the Company selected 38 top-performing managers and staff to attend online management courses offered by prestigious international universities. The courses are conducted in English, and the two-year curriculum started in 2020. The courses are divided into 6 modules featuring MIT Sloan School of Management and Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. The aim is to help participants become “digital transformation leaders”. From a global perspective, the courses offer domain knowledge in leadership, strategy, procedure, organization and human capital, which is in alignment with international trends on business management, and will foster global management and leadership skills.
To make the learning experience more effective, a group study session is planned on Fridays for participants to work together and stay on par with their weekly progress. Faculty members from Yuan Ze University are also present to lead the interaction and discussion, inspiring them to apply classroom knowledge towards work. Three modules have been completed in 2020, and a total of 106 participants have received program certification. Participants may also utilize the online platform, GetSmarter, to interact with professionals around the world and broaden international perspective. The programs are incubators essential talents that will assist the Company with its global deployment.
