TenaCiTi People + Potential Programme BETA PROGRAMME FEBRUARY-JULY 2017

TenaCiTi is a six-month programme to help small businesses get the most out of their people. By providing HR support to the business, and essential workplace skills to the junior recruit, TenaCiTi helps business owners develop highly productive employees that contribute directly to the bottom line.



The TenaCiTi programme serves to bridge the gap between our skills development initiatives and small business incubation/ acceleration programmes, all of which are designed to address areas of market weakness and failure. We are now able to support the full value chain of economic development for small and medium enterprise through integrated expert interventions at every touch point of business growth. We anticipate that businesses will receive direct and exponential benefit from their participation in TenaCiTi. The successful absorption of new talent without strong HR support is often a constraint in small businesses or departments - this programme is specifically designed to address that.�

Ian Merrington CEO, CiTi
