Equal Opportunity We believe firmly and passionately in equal opportunity for all people that come to our Brainworks – Total campus. This is based in our primary-held belief that “if any one person can accomplish something, then that must mean anyone else can too. The only missing ingredient is proper training, teaching, and opportunity for success. It is this gap which Brainworks – Total strives to fill, and in doing so, we hope to give rise to the next generation of innovators and philanthropists in Myanmar. Indeed, for our teachers alone, we guarantee a minimum of 24 full days of professional development annually. We also believe in equal opportunity regarding background, and our mission adheres to the following statement: Brainworks – Total is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our community and to ensuring that educational and employment decisions are based on individuals abilities and qualifications. We do not discriminate in offering access to our educational programs or employment opportunities on the basis of race, color, gender, religion, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, ancestry, or marital status. Brainworks – Total is committed to the principle of equal opportunity, especially in all aspects of employee relations, including employment, salary administration, employee development, promotion, and transfer.
Local Hiring When a full mango tree is planted, it yields its fruits twice over: once immediately as the ripe mangos begin to fall, and again in the future as it leaves hundreds and thousands of seeds that can bring forth entirely new mango trees. So also, as we seek to help in bringing forth a brighter Myanmar, our students represent the many seeds that will someday provide much shade and nutritious fruit for the people in those communities where the trees will take root. And right now, at this very moment, the mangos that are already available represent the qualified staff and teachers that we employ and train by their very dedication, effort, and work ethic, already they are making a difference in their country and the lives of the people around them. Day by day they continue to do their part to make a positive difference. When hiring, we place advertisements in local newspapers and journals, and use our people-network to spread the information by word of mouth. We are especially interested in candidates who show an openness for growth and hard work indeed, we feel that the potential of what an individual can become is far more important than the past of what they have already accomplished. Once a local teacher applies, we ask them to take an English language test, an aptitude test for critical thinking, an oral interview with school interviews, and they submit a written paper describing their biography and life goals. Once a new employee starts their career with us, we see it as our responsibility to provide proper opportunities for them to develop into a successful teacher and leader.
