Practical training course for Dunedin businesses

Practical training course for Dunedin businesses

May 21, 2014

Future proofing business while increasing profit and improving performance is the promise of the Adding Sustainable Value programme starting in Dunedin on May 29.

Endorsed by BusinessNZ, the Sustainable Business Council and OSEA (Otago Southland Employers Association) and delivered through Otago Polytechnic, Adding Sustainable Value is seen as the leading training course in New Zealand for companies looking to take an integrated, value-adding and strategic approach to sustainability. It’s designed to help people understand and focus attention on the issues that matter most in ways that add value rather than cost.

Eligible businesses (under 50 employees, GST registered and other conditions) can qualify for financial assistance of up to 50% from the NZTE capability development voucher scheme.

Launched in 2011, 75 businesses across New Zealand have so far completed ASV and research shows it has delivered value to those businesses that far exceeds the cost of taking part.

This is what Kat McDonald of Opus Intl. Consultants had to say: “This course is a must for any business interested in leveraging the opportunities of sustainability, driving innovation and future-proofing against the challenges that lie ahead.” Opus is just one of over 75 firms who have used this course to improve sales, reduce costs and develop innovative responses to changing times.
