The result and feedback for this year is much more positive than 2008, because the staff the get more involved and can know more and remember the skills and information be the activities.

In 2010-2011, base on the comments and feedback in 2009, we still keep on the outing activities two to three times in a year, and selected more fun and interesting place and campus for the trainer which can learn and build up stronger team building skills, also is aim to refresh their team building skills every three to four months.

In 2012, we have been inviting some outside expert to hold a seminar to the department trainer to share their experience and training technique. Also form a group, named “Training club”, all department trainer are the committee and members in this club. This club...
