University of Victoria Retains Results Performance Management 
for Business Skills Workshops in Bachelor of Commerce Program

October 9th, 2003, Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA  - Results Performance Management Inc. is pleased to announce that the University of Victoria has retained the services of Cheryl Thomas and her staff, to provide a series of key workshops, program coordination and administration for the Bachelor of Commerce Program.

Results Performance Management will be delivering workshops focused on Communications Skills, Presentation Skills, and Team Development. This Business Skills component in the introductory third year of the Bachelor of Commerce program is a mandatory course for all students. As these workshops are skills-based, and therefore not subject to traditional examinations, the course has “zero-credit” status. David McCutcheon, Director, Bachelor of Commerce Program commented, "Although these workshops do not count towards academic credits, they are a vital and mandatory component of the program. These skills are essential for students to complete follow-on assignments in the program, some of which are heavily weighted towards their final grade. As well, these skills will support their preparation for their co-op placement and, in the future, in the workplace. Very simply, everyone needs to know how to work in teams, communicate effectively with peers, subordinates and superiors, and present their concepts with poise and clarity."

Results Performance Management was seconded for these sessions due to Ms. Thomas' past work with the University of Victoria in both the Bachelor of Commerce and MBA programs. The level of outsourcing of services is unique, in that, not only will Results Performance Management be delivering skills-based workshops, but will also provide sessional level administration and coordination within the Bachelor of Commerce program. This ensures that the skills-based training is successfully applied and integrated into the program. The training will take place over the course of the semester, with the majority to be completed by the end of October.
