SIFAX Group, a conglomerate with diverse interests in the maritime and logistics sectors, said it has strengthened its staff capacity by training a total of 101 employees from its various subsidiaries in the first quarter of 2022.
The training focused on leadership skills, operations management, terminal traffic management, health, safety and environment, security, digital marketing and corporate governance.
As a first step, selected traffic managers from Ports and Cargo Handling Services (PCHS), one of the subsidiaries, were trained in terminal traffic management. This was a week-long training that aimed to provide participants with practical skills that would enable them to effectively and efficiently coordinate the movement of people, vehicles and equipment within the terminal.

Security personnel from the various subsidiaries were sent on a 3-day basic security course designed to provide a critical understanding of their roles in achieving business objectives.
Commenting on the training, Oluwakayode Alonge, Group Head, Human Resources of SIFAX Group, commended the management’s commitment to human capital development through the provision of quality trainings and refresher courses that would improve staff skills and would ultimately contribute to the growth of the business.
