Lyons Company recognizes the importance of investing in our employees' knowledge and skills development. As part of our training program, employees commit to continuously upgrading their professional skills, both technically and personally. Our Training Management System (TMS) involves four areas of concentration: management, curriculum development, training delivery, and training evaluation.
Each employee receives an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) which serves as a map of training paths focused on pursuing and achieving career goals within the company. The Lyons Company Skills Development Center serves as a classroom facility for trainer-led sessions. The training sessions involve technical and interpersonal skills, and most training sessions end in a written qualification to demonstrate competence.
