About Us

doro-ella means a gift entirely. The company was established in July 2010.

We passionately believe personal development is one of the greatest gifts an individual can give themselves to be fully equipped for work and life.

@ doro-ella, we design and offer quality filled development programs.

Our system is designed to equip and assist the learner to implement what they have learned during the program at work and be noticed.

We love what we do, and we do it extremely well.

We partner with Human Resource Professionals and SME Managers sharing the same passion and vision we have for people and development.

Since 2018 we transformed and now specialize in assisting our clients with their Learnership programs. We currently have a partnering model where we focus on doing what we do best (designing great content and THE best web-based learning programs) and offering our services to partners who we equip, to use our system for their most valued resource - their employees.

We support and contribute towards the Wink Movement, rethinking HR and shaping the future of work, increasing the quality of life for all people.

We are proud social entrepreneurs.
