So busy because these day my boss and I need ready to have many training to our colleague. The training is a compliance training. All of our colleagues need to be trained within 2 years. The training will tell them to follow the company policy and won’t do something wrong. Before the training should be complete on the company system due to it’s not very effective so this year we decide to change the model to train. We think it’s effective.
