'LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT' IS THE THEME FOR SGS INDONESIA'S 12TH QUALITY NETWORK CONFERENCE 2014
JAKARTA, INDONESIA, 9 September 2014 – SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, gathers its existing clients in Indonesia to attend the 12th Quality Network Conference (QNC) 2014 which takes place at JCC Plenary Hall, Assembly 1 – 3, Jakarta, Indonesia, on 9 September 2014, from 2pm – 7pm.
QNC brings together thousands of organisations from various industries to meet face-to-face with fellow business leaders, innovators and distinguished speakers. It provides an opportunity for participants to discuss the latest industry and market developments, share their ideas and experiences in the current market challenges, discover new concepts, and expand their knowledge about international standards, certifications and best practices. This conference aims to help SGS’ clients to stay ahead in the competitive market and to achieve business successes and continuity effectively.
Last year, the QNC’s theme was ‘Innovation: the Culture’ which attracted more than 1,200 organisations to attend the conference. This year’s theme is ‘Learning and Development’ which builds on last year’s theme, aimed to share with the audience that “Learning” is a crucial part of innovation that will lead to development of the people, organisation and economy.
In the era of knowledge-based economy, the engine of economic growth depends heavily on the capitalisation of inventions to become innovative products. Therefore, ideas behind innovation must be implemented accordingly and this may not be materialised if the organisation does not know what to do about innovation. In this context, innovation shall be spread out across organisations through a continuous learning process. A well educated and skilled workforce pool plays a key role in supporting sustainable organisation and economic growth. Hence, the education and training systems must be able to create human resources that are relevant with the growth of organisations, the development needs for an individual’s ongoing employability, and contribute to the value added chain of sustainable economic activity.
“SGS Indonesia’s Quality Network Conference is the right place for organisations to meet with each other and learn the best practices implemented by each organisation to improve operations efficiency and achieve their business success. Each organisation can transform their best practices to align with global perspective and local wisdom,” said Mr. Shashibushan Jogani, Business Manager for Systems and Services Certification for PT. SGS Indonesia. “This is the spirit that lies behind SGS Indonesia’s Quality Network Conference”, he added.
