Innovative training for WHO administrative staff

Geneva 18 March 2011-- Often one of the first items to be cut when a company or organization's budget gets squeezed is training for staff. However, WHO recognizes that trained and energized staff are just what we need to stimulate growth and problem solving at all times. The innovation, flexibility and dedication that are necessary to build truly dynamic organization comes from well-trained and supported staff. A new series of workshops especially aimed for administrative staff to strengthen their personal effectiveness is in the pipeline.
