The Michigan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (MHCC) launched its popular Tercer Jueves Business networking event last week in Auburn Hills at the Faurecia North America Headquarters. Faurecia is the world’s seventh-largest automotive supplier and has about 100,000 employees worldwide. MHCC members and affiliates alike gathered for an evening of networking, food and insight at Faurecia North America.
Jay Hutchins, Director of Faurecia University NAO, presented an overview of Faurecia’s employee development initiatives and provided an opportunity to tour Faurecia University and the prototype shop. Attendees were also given time to ask questions and open up the door for possible collaboration opportunities.
Here are a few of Mr. Hutchin’s key takeaways on the importance of organizational training and development from his presentation:
- You must continually grow, learn and look for opportunities to expand your knowledge. Develop skills and apply whatyou’re learned.
- Make certain that what you’re focusing on for employee development is consistent with your company culture.
- If you’re not doing continuous improvement activities, you’re not going to be around very long.
“On behalf of the MHCC Board of Directors, I would like to thank the chamber members, business owners, corporations, and organizations, such as Pure Michigan Business Connect, who continuously support the growth of Hispanic businesses. Their significant role has contributed to making the MHCC a dynamic and resourceful chamber throughout the state of Michigan,” said Gloria Lara, Michigan Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Officer.
