It is a joint obligation for the management team to ensure that employees are knowledgeable of their job requirements and its associated responsibilities. While Amoun endeavors to provide the necessary resources and the best possible programmes to help team members achieve their potential, we also expect employees to take their training and development initiatives seriously and make every effort to maximize the learning benefits from such initiatives.
In coordination with our commitment to team member development, it is the belief of the company that training is an integral part of the success and efficiency of Amoun’s operations. It is also fundamental to team member development within their jobs and in preparation for their career advancement. Training is therefore viewed as a shared responsibility of management and team members to accomplish the mutual benefit of an increasingly skilled work force.
“Development” is distinct from training because it has greater long-term implication on time and commitment from both Amoun & its team members. Development involves a change in thinking, a change in the way the environment is interpreted, and the ability to respond to and make headway within a given environment, among others. The outcomes of developmental activities have greater, far-reaching impact because of the potential for new and better ways of acting and responding to the environment.
A Dual Commitment to Success
Every team member (employee) wants something different from his / her job, and its our aim to encourage each person to find the best way of fulfilling his / her potential. To help to do that, Amoun has created comprehensive training & development opportunities that assist team members in choosing their own route to success.
This will ensure we achieve sustainable profit growth and guarantee future development opportunities for our people within a dynamic organization. These activities directly impact our code of ethics and support the achievement of our Vision. We are committed to team member development & will ensure that opportunities exist at every stage of an individual’s development for them to grow and fully realize their potential.

Cross training is designed to train team members in departments other than those in which they work. It is intended to expand their perspective by giving them a better understanding of other departments and may also prepare them for a lateral transfer or promotion.
