Hence, with the two majors coming together, we look forward to empowering organisations with both, market-ready and future-ready skills in order to train their workforce with best of technical,leadership, and managerial varieties for maximum career benefits.”

Swapnil Kamat, CEO,Work Better Training said “Work Better Training started as a result of our own frustration with corporate training.

With this consolidation, we both can leverage each other’s expertise to add further value and provide holistic solutions to customers”
