UST Global won a listing in the Gold Category based on the company's superior performance in learning strategy, leadership commitment, learning execution, learning impact and business performance results.

This strategy focuses on ensuring outcomes are focused on business growth and client success while ensuring that a self-driven learning culture is provided to all employees.

However, UST is most commended for overcoming the obstacles and challenges related to changing internal cultural sentiment regarding successful implementation of self-driven learning. Very impressive accomplishment.
