Investing personal resources to certify one’s skills is one matter - the employer organisation doing it for the individual, is whole another matter. The company puts faith in their employees and trusts their ability to successfully obtain the certificate. In return, the employees add value to the company, more importantly, to themselves. Enhancing their profile, the company helps them evolve and climb up the professional ladder. And Blisstering strongly believes in investing in its employees.
