Our people volunteer their skills and expertise through vocational training sessions to local audiologists and students in many countries around the world.
A Fun Learning Opportunity
(August 2020, US, picture above) Every year, Signia US hosts a week-long Student University event in which a selected group of students visits the New Jersey facility for lectures on audiology-related topics by external experts, as well as internal staff. It’s not only a fun learning opportunity, but it provides a space for networking with other students and the Signia team. This year, the event was held virtually with 141 students having registered from 56 U.S. universities. Lectures with the highest attendance were on topics including Interviewing and Resume Skills, Tinnitus, and Probe Microphone Measures.
(August 2020, Global) As technology plays a bigger role in most of our lives – now more than ever – WSA has adapted to the times with initiatives related to education, learning, and training, many of them online. These include separate Widex and Sivantos events, such as launch webinars, online trainings using new platforms, and local markets trainings carried out by sales colleagues from each respective side. The events cater to customer’s specific needs.
Supporting Our Own Children’s Education
(February 2020, ZA, picture above) WSA South Africa recognizes education as a key driver of personal development and, subsequently, commercial success. Thus, the company launched an initiative to financially support the education of its employees’ children. WSA will invite its South African employees to apply annually. If accepted, they’ll receive either full or partial funding for their children’s schooling. This year, all applicants received at least some funding from the total 5,200 US dollars contributed by WSA.
Motivation for all
(August 2020, ZA) Signia South Africa organized an event with motivational speaker Gavin Sharples for some much needed inspiration and humor in addition to sending out rose gold mobile rings to their clients in celebration of National Women’s Day which takes place every year on August 9.
