Hopscotch, a six-month-old online platform that helps women to find flexible work, will set up free Workshops on the topic of “Personal Effectiveness”. Building on the first series of workshops offered by in May and June this year and on its One to One Training launched in August, a second Workshop, this time in partnership with MasterCard, will take place on November 14, 2016.
A recent survey conducted by Hopscotch shows that 67 percent of the women interviewed would like to gain more confidence, just over half wanted to brush up on their social media skills and 64 percent wanted to improve their Personal Effectiveness, inspiring co-founder and managing director Helen McGuire worked to set up the free Hopscotch Workshops.
McGuire says, “Our aim at Hopscotch is to support women in their quest for work. We know from our ongoing contact and feedback from women that there is a real desire to have that personal connect with a profession and through our Workshops, Power Sessions and One to One service, we are working to guide them in that process and, in turn, help them find their ideal job through us.”
MasterCard’s, senior vice-president of HR, Scott Tierney, says: “We are excited to partner with Hopscotch on the Personal Effectiveness Workshop to support women in the UAE on their journey back into the workplace.”
Hopscotch is also planning to start a collaboration in December with another key sponsor to offer Skills Sessions once a month designed to inspire, educate and train attendees in key skills.
