MCI accredited by the Learning and Performance Institute

Geneva, 25 November 2015. MCI’s in-house learning and development department, the MCI Institute, has been officially accredited for the first time by the Learning and Performance Institute (LPI), a leading global organisation for learning and development professionals.

MCI’s accreditation reinforces its commitment to employee development to raise the standard of workplace learning and to continually deliver its unique solutions and services to clients worldwide.

“Professional development remains at the top of the agenda at MCI,” said Avinash Chandarana, Group Learning and Development Director. “We are proud of this accreditation as it recognises our forward thinking and investment in building a strong learning and knowledge-driven organisation.

“With this accreditation, our clients can feel assured they are working with an organisation that is leading the way in equipping staff with the latest skills and knowledge to help them achieve their goals.”

MCI was awarded accreditation for meeting LPI’s evaluation criteria in five areas including: vision, mission and goals of learning and development, business operations, service delivery, business engagement and professionalism and ethics.

MCI joins other accredited LPI members such as Microsoft, BP, Deloitte, KPMG and PwC.

“The accreditation of MCI Group’s learning and development department, the MCI Institute, demonstrates its commitment to building capability across the Group’s worldwide operations,” said Alan Bellinger, LPI’s Lead Performance Consultant, who conducted the accreditation.

“Its advanced thinking in knowledge management and modern workplace learning assures clients are working with an organisation that is committed to delivering outstanding customer experience.”

The MCI Institute has delivered nearly 700 hours of group-wide learning in 2014, received over 3,200 employee enrolments to its virtual and face to face workshops, and currently offers more than 300 on-demand sessions hosted on its pioneering Learning and Knowledge Management System.
