The COVID-19 pandemic has redefined how we conduct business and throughout this crisis, Activo has remained committed to helping our communities and increasing our capabilities to offer better services to clients.
While our field staff has provided essential ICT services, team members who have been working remotely have utilized this time to take part in several training opportunities that will help us emerge from this situation stronger.
Team members have taken part in training focused on implementing future practices that will inspire and promote change. These comprise optional and mandatory training modules that will allow us to improve both internally and externally.
Some of the new skills our team members have acquired include:
