Inspired by Ian Langley, chairman of Airswift Group, whose decision it was to acquire Pacifica HR in PNG in 2010; the Langley Graduate Program was initiated by the Vice President of Australasia, Matthew Smith, in partnership with PNGHRI President, Jerry Wemin. Since 2012, the Langley Program has invested over K400,000 in the career development of 86 UPNG graduates holding a Bachelor in Business, majoring in Human Resources, through intense pre-employment training.
The program comprises of three Human Resource Certificate courses through PNGHRI, a 12-week secondment, a variety of professional development workshops, seminars, practical assignments, volunteer and networking opportunities and mentoring secondary students. The program also gives our clients and local companies the potential to find excellent long-term employees, at no cost to them, during the graduates’ secondment period. The main objective is for all the graduates to find permanent employment before the program’s completion and to date has a 90% success rate.
