Young Chilean GenShare employees traveled to IndiaPublished:
April 1, 2010Seventeen professionals were chosen to take part in specialized training with the company, which opened its Chilean offices in mid-2009. This trip is made possible through the Chilean government's efforts to promote the training of human capital in the global services industry.
The delegation of young professionals will travel to a world-class software export technology center in Trivandrum, on India's west coast. These professionals are some of the first employees hired by GenShare, a joint venture between UST Global and General Electric.
In a CORFO-sponsored gathering, the professionals met with Executive vice president CEO, Hernán Cheyre, who emphasized the efforts to promote investments that have resulted in General Electric opening offices in Chile through GenShare.
Cheyre congratulated the young professionals and encouraged them to keep working towards progress in Chile. "You should feel very proud and honored to have the chance to represent our country in this initiative. I ask, in the name of CORFO and Chile, that you take advantage of this opportunity".
The delegation, which went away on Thursday, is made up of professionals from different parts of the country. They will participate in four months of training at GenShare?s offices in Trivandrum, located near the southern tip of India.
"I am very pleased to be able to participate in and learn from this experience. The prospect of bringing this learning back to Chile, improving my skills, and being part of the country's development is also very exciting," commented Daniela Barrera, one of the professionals selected for trip.
Upon returning to Chile, the group will work at the Development Center in Viña del Mar, which offers global services, primarily in software development for General Electric.
