Corporate Training

Corporate Training

IIGJ offers outcome-focused training programmes for the gem & jewellery industry that are relevant to business needs, for improved performance/productivity of the organisation.

These programmes, such as Retail Sales Associate & Gold Appraisal Training, are essentially outlined to offer a diverse spectrum of training solutions to gem & jewellery businesses through existing sets of readily available as well as customised programmes.

Based on IIGJ’s dialogues with gem & jewellery businesses of different strengths and sizes, there has emerged a compelling and ever-growing requirement for trained jewellery professionals in various departments.

Three types of Corporate Training are available:

  • Off-the Shelf (Retail Sales Associate and Gold Appraisal)
  • Customised (As per customer’s specific requirements) 
  • Hire-Train-Depute

The “Hire-Train-Depute” Model provides a winning proposition to gem and jewellery businesses to meet their growing need for trained manpower and help achieve their business goals. The model works as explained below: 

Hire – The jewellery company hires potential resources as per its recruitment policy. 

Train – New hires will be trained by IIGJ as per company requirement utilising customised programmes on subjects such as: 

  • Technical Skills
  • Selling Skills 
  • Soft Skills and Work Ethics, to name a few.

Depute – Trained personnel are deputed back to the company in various departments to perform their designated duties. 

Indian Institute of Gems & Jewellery invites gem and jewellery businesses to explore possibilities of collaboration in training their new hires and gaining an extra edge.
