The company

Headway is a dynamic and ever improving training organization with the mission of elevating the talents of people to reach their full potential and live a life of fulfillment. Headway is created for the sole purpose of bringing positive change in the lives of people and organizations through continuous learning and self development. The company intends to offer training courses in the six core areas that is the dire need of every large, medium-size and small businesses and of every working professional as well, through reputed and respected Learning Specialists (Trainers). 

Constantly evolving and ever changing business environment offers more and more challenges to maintain a productive and efficient workforce. This changing, dynamic and challenging environment, results in the ever growing need for a highly skilled, trained, motivated and engaged workforce. The biggest challenge companies’ facing these days is to attract, retain, motivate and engage the best quality employees and top performers. How do you build and maintain that employee capability within the organization is the biggest challenge of current times? At Headway it is our strong belief that continuous learning and self development are the keys through which all of the above objectives are met. Enhanced employee capability, productivity, motivation and skill building are the direct fruits of good training programs.

Organizations that are aware of the benefits of training invest good money on their employees’ development. American Society of Training and Development estimates that U.S. organizations spent $134.39 billion on employee learning and development in 2007. This amount reflects direct learning expenditures such as the learning function's staff salaries, administrative learning costs, and non-salary delivery costs (including outsourced activities). Nearly two-thirds of the U.S. total ($83.62 billion) was spent on the internal learning function, such as staff salaries and internal development costs. The remainder ($50.77 billion) was allocated to external services such as workshops, vendors and external events. (Source: www.astd.org)

Planning your Career for Success is one of the most important actions for a fulfilling and thriving work life. In these workshops Career Specialists present the very best tips and tools in choosing and adopting the most appropriate career for an individual.

3)        Employability Skills

                      Finding the ideal job after choosing the right career and studying the most appropriate degree is not a cakewalk. There are tools and techniques on finding the right job, from preparing resumes to sending a thank you letter after the interview which paves the way for an individual to get the all important job. Not only finding the first job is important but for an evolving and thriving career it is extremely important to keep abreast of the current trends in the industry and keep developing your skills for preparing resumes and giving interviews according to the latest trends. Workshops at Headway will be focusing these areas of learning of the Pakistani Workforce.

4)        Meet the Expert Program

          Time and Costs are increasingly becoming the greatest assets one has and also the greatest challenge these days. Headway is offering a unique program of “Meet the Expert”. The format of this program is such that it allows professionals to grab as much knowledge, skills and expertise in a bare minimum time period of two to three hours. An expert will be called in for the program belonging to a specific field may it by Finance, HR, Sales, Marketing or any other field who will be giving a small speech or presentation of about 20 minutes. The floor will then be open to individuals of that particular field who will be asking questions to the expert and sharing practical, on the floor problems. We believe that this is a unique way towards enhanced learning and practical problem solving in a minimum time period as well as reduced costs up to 1/4th of a full day Training Program.

5)        Training for Professionals

          This learning Unit is focusing purely on Professional Training. The Professional Training section will cater to the needs of Professionals only, here the word Professional implies to those people who belong to a certain profession like Teaching, Medicine, Law etc. These Trainings will be done only by those belonging to the Profession

6)        Executive English

          There is no doubt that English is the language of correspondence and communication in this world. If you are not familiar with English you are almost illiterate. It is the language of the business world it is proven that those who are good at English fly the corporate ladder more quickly. We will be offering courses mainly divided into two major sections i.e. Spoken and Written English. Just go through the Events Calendar on the website to see upcoming courses.
