Challenge Upgrade Mid Level Managerial Skills

The middle level managers in the factory did not have formal management qualification . Most were engineers.
They lacked managerial skills and cross functional knowledge required for promotion to senior positions .
The work pressure was high and they did not have time to take up a management program
Losing senior experienced people to organizations in UAE

Challenge For Employees

Long work hours did not allow time to get a face to face degree
Many had been out of education for a long time and were anxious about studying again
Cost an issue due to family commitments
Some Employees had a distance degree but did not experience career growth within the organization

Mr. Sharad Agarwal, Sr. VP- Operations, GPI

"I have excellent people in production and the middle level managers have been with us for a long number of years, from 5 years to over 20 years. But when they want to grow further to senior management cadre there seems to be a problem. These middle level managers have not been exposed to any formal management education. The work pressure is high and they do not have any time to take up a management education program. I do not know how to  chart out their career growth to senior management programs
