Having a talented pool of managers and leaders is critical to CapitaLand’s business success. Therefore, CLIMB has a Management-Leadership Trek to offer the following programmes to equip these managers and leaders:
To complement the programmes offered by CLIMB, CapitaLand’s iCampus offers eLearning courses which staff can enrol in and learn at their own pace.
CLIMB provides strategic networking opportunities for CapitaLand's international staff, overseas and local business partners, and students from overseas universities.
CLIMB’s primary target audience is CapitaLand’s employees (both local & overseas) who seek to grow both personally and professionally to enhance their work performance, while business partners are its secondary target audience. Opportunities abound for bonding and networking across countries and strategic business units.
Trainers comprise CapitaLand's senior management, business domain experts, leading professors and practitioners, all of whom are proven professionals with a great wealth of knowledge and experience to share. Involving CapitaLand’s staff as trainers is also one way to institutionalise knowledge and propagate its core values as well as unique ways of doing business across the Group. Strengthening Core Values, CapitaDNA, Fundamentals of Real Estate, and Personal Effectiveness are just some of the programmes that are facilitated by CapitaLand’s internal trainers.
The Process: Engage. Empower. Equip.
The process aims to engage, empower and equip CapitaLand’s learners to perform at greater heights through the acquisition and development of new knowledge, skills and mindset.
At CapitaLand, learning and development is a joint responsibility between the Company and staff. Staff are encouraged to be proactive in charting and directing their own learning and development plans, while the Company commits to provide the necessary resources to create a conducive learning environment.
Learners are empowered to explore solutions that work. Through problem-solving, creative thinking, and reflective learning, learners’ capabilities are enhanced, and they adopt new and relevant behaviours that produce results, as well as apply what they learn in their workplace.
CLIMB collaborates with faculties from leading institutions such as Harvard University, INSEAD, Chicago Graduate School of Business, Centre for Creative Leadership, Nanyang Technological University, National University of Singapore and Tong Ji University in Shanghai, China.
CLIMB also invites CapitaLand’s business partners and government organisations to participate in some of our programmes. They not only share their business expertise, but also offer a balanced perspective of the real estate business and environment.
