The D & L-Ateneo Human Capital Development Partnershipemployee-growth-3

D & L does invest in people. With the Ateneo Rockwell Graduate School of Business as partner institute, it has engaged its high potentials from both managerial and supervisory groups into an intensive six month-learning program using the Building Business framework.

The seasoned managers go through the LMDP (Leadership Management Development Program) while their successions undergo the SET (Supervisory Essentials Training) curriculum. The attendees have to pass a mini-thesis defense of their Work Application Project (WAP) before a panel of professors as a proof of learning. To date, three batches with over a 100 candidates have been privileged participants.

In addition to the LMDP and SET, the Human Resource department also conducts seminars and workshops. Below are a few of the programs conducted this 2015:
