“The “Guide to Good Industrial Relations Practice” course organized by ROYTEC and conducted by Suren Dookie is one of the best organized IR course... I recommend this course not only to students, but also practitioners in the Industrial Relations and the HR Management field.”
“I learned a great deal from this course and I particularly enjoyed the interaction we had, especially hearing the views of the other participants within the programme, each of whom brought their own knowledge and experience to the table. The facilitator also went through some landmark Court Judgments with us, which was also quite a learning experience.”
“The facilitator dealt with requests in accordance with Sec 51 (3) of the IRA (Trade Disputes). This was explained in detail. No other facilitator has explained this in so much detail. I definitely benefited from this course.”
“The course made me aware of the importance of following proper procedure in order to avoid disputes reaching the Ministry of Labour.”
