Investing in Human Capital
Talent is the essence of enterprise. Decision is the key to international competitiveness. In order to enhance the enterprise's core competitiveness, the Min-Sheng Healthcare System not only created a knowledge sharing system, but for the past three years, its associates have achieved an acceptance rate of greater than 90% into many top graduate schools, revealing Min-Sheng’s strong foundation and formidable and competitive talent base.
The primary requirement in the development of competitiveness is the training of personnel. During the past three years, Min-Sheng’s associates have been admitted to such famous graduate schools as National Taiwan University, Chengchi University, Chung Yuan Christian University and Fu Jen Catholic University. Overall, a total of 50 master’s degrees have been obtained, an excellent show of competitiveness.
Min-Sheng has cooperated with Yuan Ze University to establish an EMBA for its employees. Additionally, it is currently working with several local universities to promote industry-university cooperation in order to create a platform for personnel training, enhance employee competitiveness and operations management know-how. Min-Sheng is Taiwan’s first health care system to make an attempt at cultivating an international perspective, innovative strategic thinking, and team management personnel in order to compete more effectively in the international medical arena.
Chairman Yang Min-Sheng stated that the nurturing of talents has become an indicator of competitiveness. He added that sustainable development of the Min-Sheng Healthcare System enables it to “implement an organizational culture, pursue excellence, and grow strong. “
Chairman Yang also stated that as a result of globalization, health care appears to be following the trend of internationalization.
