SHL, in cooperation with the Taoyuan County Industrial Association, hosted a delegation from the Bureau of Employment and Vocational Training to discuss strategies of Taiwan-based foreign enterprises to develop local talent and increase global competitiveness.
With cutting-edge technology playing a major factor in SHL operations, specialized knowledge and technology lie outside the scope of traditional training programs. To continually develop talent in conjunction with industry trends, SHL relies on the synergies generated from joint ventures (JV) and R&D collaboration to enrich organizational training.
SHL's strategy of transferring knowledge and technology via JVs with overseas enterprises highlights its commitment to ensuring local talent increases its' global competitiveness. This strategy also enhances the specialized competencies of local talent and serves as a model for other foreign enterprises operating in Taiwan.
SHL FOSTAG, a joint venture between SHL and the Swiss tool manufacturer FOSTAG, is a primary vehicle for the transfer of knowledge and technology. Willi Germann, general manager of SHL FOSTAG, remarked, "The cooperation between overseas and local engineers benefits the JV by increasing employee competencies. Incorporating highly specialized skills into the existing expertise of local engineers also gives them a unique advantage among their peers."
