SujataBarla, co-founder, says, "Meeraq drives transformational and lasting behaviour change, inspiring professionals and improving job performance, ultimately building a resilient, more productive workforce.There’s a lot of soft skills training that happens through self-paced content, but self-paced as a methodology works great for functional skills and is not effective for soft skills. On the other spectrum isface-to-face classroom training, where Learning and Development teams work yearlong to develop the calendar, nominations, and scouting of facilitators, to venues and that happens only when they have reached a certain size of the cohort. We at Meeraq are solving exactly this problem for companies.”
