VISION, MISSION & VALUES
As Higherway Institute of Learning, we subscribe to the statement articulated by Helen Keller, the first deaf and blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1904. She said “The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision”. When she made this statement, she was not referring to the importance of physical eyesight but to that of having a vision – an ambitious dream that drives everything you do.As an institution, we work hard to define every vision that guides the strategies we adopt and then work harder to achieve those visions, no matter how challenging. Thomas Edison coined at statement that says “Vision without Execution is Hallucination”.
At Higherway Institute of Learning, we ensure that all energies are focused towards the attainment of the vision.What our vision means for our clients is that the utmost level of a trusted partnership, both earned and maintained, will be the foundation we will rely on to design, deliver and follow through on any training or consulting service our clients entrust us with. Be it a 2-day training workshop for improving interviewing skills or a year-long modular program for developing tomorrow’s leaders, our clients can count on us – can trust us the most – to deliver the product or service that will meet their expectations on all fronts. Higherway Institute of Learning knows that a partnership with clients built on utmost trust is hard to earn and harder to maintain. That is why our vision will be fuelled by a mission driven by five core values which will form the basis for every decision we take affecting our clients.
The first of these core values is Mastery. Higherway Institute of Learning is quite selective when it comes to hiring team members, at any level. Although talent and expertise permeate the market, finding a subject matter expert who is competent in making subject matter experts out of others is not an easy feat. That is Higherway Institute of Learning’s definition of Mastery; for what good is it to master a subject if one cannot pass this mastery to others? At Higherway Institute of Learning, we demand from our experts to be masters in their fields and masters in developing others as well.The second core value is Excellence.
Ever since the firm was founded, Excellence, in one form or another, has always been part of its credo. The prospect of doing a good job might help a company climb the success ladder but it will not keep the company ‘up there’. For success to be sustainable, it needs to be built on Excellence. Whether it is the promptness with which we respond to our clients, or the engaging environment we create in our training programs, we strive for Excellence in everything we do. We did it since we were established. That is what keeps us among the leaders in this crowded industry. We will do it again going forward.Innovation is the firm’s third core value. Tom Peters (the global management guru) said it best when he proclaimed “Innovate or Die!” At Higherway Institute of Learning, we are strong believers in the importance of Innovation. We pursue innovation and creativity to ensure we stay aligned with our progressive clients. Be it the new products we launch every period, or the novel learning methodologies we introduce into our programs, or the creative solutions we provide to our demanding clients, we work hard on maintaining our innovative edge. We do so because we know how critical innovation is, in pursuing our vision of earning and maintaining our clients’ trust.The fourth core value that will drive our mission is Reliability.
Higherway Institute of Learning employs highly qualified subject matter experts in this region who are reliable and committed to satisfying our learners’ requirements. The availability of a strong team of trainers / facilitators, coupled with a solid management team of professionals, enables Higherway institution to live this core value of Reliability. Our professional staff are always at our clients’ service making sure they are kept happy and comfortable. This is what sets us apart from the rest and makes us the most reliable firm in the industry.
Our clients have relied on us for a long time. Our reliability will ensure they continue to do so.Client-Centricity is our last and most important core value. In Higherway Institute of Learning, every fibre in our organizational fabric is designed with our clients in mind. The modular structure of our training programs, the client-focused mindset of every professional we have, and the flexible pricing structures we offer make our ability to customize client-centric products almost endless. That is why many of our clients have been with us since we were founded and why we will stop at nothing to keep them with us for generations to come.
