For the academy, ITF has created a world class infrastructure in PSG-STEP at PSG iTECH Campus. The institute was inaugurated by Shiv Khera, well-known author, business consultant and global thought leader.
Of the 650 member companies of ITF, 51 textile mills have joined as partner for the academy. The service will be expanded to more mills after a year. “We want to build the culture of employee happiness, which will in turn create a high-performance climate in our member mills to achieve excellence in manufacturing,” ITF said in a press release.
“Today’s businesses are facing lot of challenges as well as opportunities. Several disruptions are happening in all parts of business. In such a situation, every organisation needs to adapt to the changing needs quickly. ?For any organisation, main strength lies with its core executives’ ability to respond to change. It is here that the ITF Leadership Academy, with continuous training, is going to equip individual managers in various member organisations with all pillars of leadership, including continuous motivation, new techniques, and mind refreshment, to enable them to always excel in working environment,” the release added.
