为什么企业家的持续学习是在履行社会责任




‪‎为什么企业家的持续学习是在履行社会责任‬  
Why is the continuous learning of an entrepreneur considered as CSR ?


成就个人
Self Achievement

作为领导人,企业家持续的学习除了可以确保个人对最新管理知识与资讯不会脱节,也籍此掌握时事动态,在最恰当的时候做出策略决定。同时,也能以身作则为团队立下榜样,鼓舞团队持续学习,善用新知不断的为企业增值

As a leader, continuous learning ensures entrepreneurs are always in touch with the latest management knowledge and skills in order to make the most strategic decision for the company. At the same time, such effort is a good example to lead a team and to encourage the team to continuously learn and upgrade themselves.


‪振兴企业‬
Bringing the organization to a higher level

通过学习,企业家得到除了新知,也包括了人脉。这将让企业家可以有效的通过不同的方式去解决企业所面对的挑战。越少负担的企业,越能加速成长。

With the knowledge and network gained through the process of learning, entrepreneurs will be able to master the 5W1H to overcome challenges faced in the organization and bring the organization to a higher level without much hassle.


造福社会
Benefiting the society

一家稳健成长的企业将有能力通过充足的人力与资源去回馈社会,协助社会当中有需要的人群。与此同时,健康的企业意味着高生产力,因此就能缴交更多税务,对国家经济发展有直接的贡献。

A healthy organization will always have the resources and manpower to contribute to the society. Apart from that,a healthy organization will also have high productivity that generates higher tax for the nation, which directly contribute to the nation's economy and development.

简单来说,当一个企业家选择往对的方向持续学习时,蜕变就开始酝酿中了。


In short, when an entrepreneur chooses to continue learning in the right direction, transformation is near.
