We work to balance the needs of …employees to offer applicable development opportunities,leaders to develop themselves and their staff in ways that align to organizational goals, andthe organization to develop talent aligned with organizational goals, in an efficient and cost-effective manner.The complexities of developing 10 or 10,000 people are the same. Development opportunities cannot just focus on technical skills needed for a current position. They must also focus on skills to grow staff members into new roles and opportunities based on their individual aspirations and goals. Therefore, online training with compliance, sales, lending or member experience modules, while necessary, only covers a fraction of needs.So, how do we fulfill the needs of the many? By focusing our efforts.
The 20th anniversary of the inscription of Trogir on the UNESCO World Heritage List was solemnly marked
A ceremony marking the 20th anniversary of the inscription of the Trogir city center on the UNESCO World Heritage List was held in Trogir yesterday.Back on December 6, 1997, Trogir became part of the prestigious list of unique sites in the world. Although the city has been in this chosen society for two decades, experts gathered at the round table today to warn that, among other things, intensive work should be done to maintain UNESCO status, as was done intensively to Trogir and enters the list.The long process of entering UNESCO was reminded by Dr. sc. Danka Radić, who participated in the preparation of materials for the application, and today is the president of the Society for the Protection of Cultural Heritage “Radovan”. “Trogir started the process of applying for UNESCO in the 80s. The inscription in the World Heritage List in 1997 is the result of many years of efforts by Trogir cultural workers, Vesna Girardi Jurkić, but also numerous state institutions. This meant great publicity and extraordinary recognition, but also an obligation and effort to preserve the heritage in the most original edition possible.”Said Danka Radic.Dr. sc. Miroslav Katic, head of the Conservation Department in Trogir, also pointed out the efforts that need to be made in order to protect the city center of Trogir, and thus preserve its membership in UNESCO. ” We are marking a very important date. Sometimes we forget that our city is part of the world heritage. My experience with implementing the simplest conservation measures in recent years remains on futile attempts. We must work in this field of basic protection and regulation of communal life in the city”Said Miroslav Katic.Dr.sc. Fani Celio Cega, director of the Museum of the City of Trogir, spoke about investing in the renovation of the Museum in the last 20 years and noted that the museum building should be systematically invested every year. Dr. sc. Dunja Babić from the company “Radovan” talked about the importance of making a management plan for the city center. “UNESCO recommends that such plans be drawn up, and obliges those who would like to join the list to do so. It is a serious and large organization, and all members have the obligation and duty to take care of their heritage. In conversations with the residents of the center, we received a huge number of complaints. The city has become uncomfortable, the quality of life in the center has fallen, and what has contributed to this is tourism, despite its positive effects. Trogir is not a unique example here and the center could be emptied of tenants, and we need to ask ourselves how to stop it and I hope that the City will get involved.”Said Dunja Babic.Prof. Ankica Babin spoke about the publication ‘Trogir Unesco 1997-2017’, published by the Radovan Association, and Deputy Mayor Ruža Kovačević Bilić presented in detail the project “Trogir Stone Encyclopedia – City Walls, Guardians of Heritage and Pledge of the Future”. This is a project that envisages the preparation of documentation for the restoration of cultural property in the old town: Kamerlengo Tower, St. Mark, Marmont’s Gloriette and the Battery area, the South Gate and the small waterfront lodge, the North Gate and the remains of the city walls. The project will make about 40 professional studies, which include the preparation of documentation for the restoration of these monuments and their commissioning. The project is worth HRK 5.808.637,27, of which HRK 4.436.599,81 is a grant from EU funds. “This is a very important and valuable project whose goal is to preserve the cultural heritage of Trogir, which has been systematically neglected for years and is in very poor condition. With the renovation, we want to valorize the heritage in a modern and quality way and thus attract more tourists, extend the season, improve the economy, but also make life in the old town better”Pointed out Ruža Kovačević Bilić.By the way, on June 17, 1998, the ceremony of admitting Trogir to UNESCO was held, so at the beginning of the next tourist season, the City of Trogir will continue the celebration of this great anniversary, but in an even more spectacular edition. As part of the opening of the Trogir Summer, a visual and scenic event will be held to inform the general public about the fact that Trogir has been part of the prestigious UNESCO family for 20 years.Related news:THE FIRST CROSS ROAD UNDER THE SEA IN THE WORLD OFFICIALLY OPENED IN TROGIR HOTEL OLA, NEW HOTEL OF HEALTH AND MEDICAL TOURISM IN TROGIR
