We employ 33,350 specialists globally. Our success largely depends on the availability of skilled and committed people who share our values. That is why we established the DKSH Fantree Academy, our in-house learning and development center. The Academy uses customized programs to provide learning opportunities. It also serves as a platform for networking, sharing best practices and reinforcing our corporate culture.
Besides furthering our own employees, a strong commitment to the local communities we operate in has always been an integral part of our business.
One of our core initiatives in our major market Thailand is our decade-long partnership with international organization Right to Play. This global organization uses the transformative power of play to educate and empower children facing adversity. DKSH continued its support in 2018 by providing funding and use of our facilities. We also support other charities that directly meet the needs of our local communities.
Voices from Fantree Academy Participants
“The Service Excellence program helped my team and me to be able to think and feel from customers‘ shoes and to learn to be more empathetic so we can serve our customers better.”
Eva Chan, Manager, Group SAP Security, DKSH Corporate Shared Services Center, Malaysia
“The ’Building Winning Sales Partnerships’ course was a comprehensive and easily actionable program for me, as it is designed specifically for Business Unit Technology and linked to our CRM system. Using the selling tools and a common language from the program in my day-to-day job has had a very positive impact on both my sales performance as well as me personally.”
Maggie Yang, Senior Sales Manager, Business Unit Technology, Taiwan
DKSH supports a local orphanage in Myanmar
“In March 2018, we organized a day trip to the Shwe Thar Lyaung pagoda and the beautiful Shwe Pyi resort for 100 children from the Witharkhar Orphanage and School. This nunnery school cares for orphans, providing them and other disadvantaged local children with a monastic education. DKSH Myanmar has supported their work for many years including donating a school building, supporting the teachers, and other ongoing support. Every year, we organize exciting activities for the children together with our employees. This fun day out in 2018 included playing games and learning about the environment. At the end of the outing, I handed out presents to all the children, and the 40 DKSH volunteers went back home having experienced a very special day serving the local community.”
Phillip Wray, Vice President, Healthcare, Myanmar
