SFI Group has announced new training initiatives as part of its broader recovery plan.

With the slogan "on a mission to develop talent from the bar to the boardroom", the company has launched four-week management induction programmes with the aim of creating "role model" general managers to drive the business forward from the front line.

What is good for the Indians, it seems, is also good for the chiefs. To keep the bosses on their toes the group has also introduced an "excellence in management" programme for senior managers up to boardroom level.

Human resources director Helen Scott, who criticised the overall standard of industry training, said: "These people development programmes are mission critical and a major part of our recovery programme rests on recruiting, developing and retaining the best talent."
