The 21st century exposes professionals to change continuously. In this fluid new world, your skills and competencies are challenged on a daily basis. In addition to the demands imposed by the Fourth Industrial Revolution, business professionals must maintain the role of fulfilling their responsibility to report the creation of value to stakeholders in a transparent manner.
Integrated Reporting (IR) is therefore fast becoming a necessity to communicate in a concise manner how an organization’s strategy, governance, performance and prospects lead to the creation of value over the short, medium and long term.
The primary purpose of an integrated report is to explain to providers of financial capital how an organization creates, preserves or erodes value over time. It therefore contains relevant information, both financial and other. An integrated report benefits all stakeholders interested in an organization’s ability to create value over time, including employees, customers, suppliers, business partners, local communities, legislators, regulators and policy-makers

IN HOUSE AND ONLINE TRAINING
While both In-House and Online training can present with cost-effectiveness and time-efficacy, there are some very specific differences between in-house courses and those based online.
The demand for additional courses by individuals or groups of people is increasing. Still, it depends entirely on the preferences of a person what type of training he or she wants to receive. Online courses and in-house training carry some similarities but they are considered to exhibit some very pivotal differences too. Despite that, both types of learning can be really beneficial for attendees.
