We promote the qualitative growth of our employees through training


In IGD we are convinced that in order to be more competitive we must work to continuously improve the professional skills of our people.  IGD works constantly to meet its employees’ needs for training and refresher courses at all levels. Part of the training activities are organized internally, while for more specialized training needs, IGD supports the participation of employees in external refresher courses.
