CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION
Concept of Training
The concept of training predates history; it is as old as man himself. The earliest man learnt to hunt and grow crops for his survival. One of the earliest types of training was on the job training (OJT), which is still in wide use today China began training of her workers through conceptual case studies in the 5th century BC. Confucius presented problems to his students and asked them to
contemplate possible solutions to those problems. The case study is still widely in practice even today, mostly in professional schools. It is an effective tool to encourage learners to think philosophically without about difficult to go and
personal experiences. As time went on, modern theories of psychology, training, and staff development were applied to training methods in order to keep staff skilled, knowledgeable, and motivated.
2 Definition: employees “Training basic is skills the process need, of to teaching perform new their
jobs” (Gary Dessler). Training is a learning experience which seeks a relatively improve permanent ability change to in the individual his job that will Every
organization needs to have well trained, experienced and adjusted Training employees can to perform the their of duties efficiently. knowledge,
attitudes, or behavior. It may mean changing what employees know, how they work, their attitudes toward their work, or their interaction is more with their day coworkers oriented or and supervisor. focuses on
individual’s existing jobs and enhancement of abilities to perform well. Training should not focus on new employees only, but old employees in should to also keep be put through knowledge
Employees Development: “Future-oriented training, focusing on the personal growth of employees” (David Stephen), for example if an employee is promoted supervisor, his new job would require him to
3 ensure his subordinates do their duties well. This would require his grooming in advance. This is known as employees’ development, and every organization must plan/carry out employee’s development in order to keep it functioning efficiently.
Purpose of Training and Development
Reasons for emphasizing training and development of employees:
replacements for personnel who may leave or move up in the organization.
competitive position and improves employees morale.
Ensuring adequate human resources for expansion into new programs.
It has been experienced that companies can benefit a lot from training and developing of their workers. Some of the
4 advantages which an organization may enjoy from a well
trained staff are as under:
• • • •
Increased productivity. Reduced employee turnover. Increased efficiency resulting in financial gains. Decreased need for supervision.
There are two broad types of training programs in vogue—on job and off job training. On the job Training (OJT): On job training means having a person learn the job by actually doing it. Every employee from the boss to the lowest level staff gets on the job training, on joining a firm. In this way, they do not lose time while they are learning. On the job training includes orientations, job instruction training, apprenticeships,
internships, assistantships, and coaching. Off the job Training: In off the job training the workers after recruitment are properly trained and then allowed to perform their duties. This type of training includes
lectures, special study programs, films, discussions, case studies, role playing, simulation, programmed instructions
5 and laboratory training. Most of these techniques can be used by organizations, although for some it may be too
costly. Orientations are for new employees. The first several days on the job are crucial in the success of new employees. This point is illustrated by the fact that 60 percent of all employees who quit do so in the first ten days.
Orientation training should emphasize the following topics:
• • •
The company's history and mission. The key members in the organization. The key members in the department, and how the
department helps fulfill the mission of the company.
Rules and regulations for employees. No matter what method is used, it is important that
employment. Cordial surroundings and cooperative coworkers encourage the new comers to feel at home and take interest in their job Lectures present training material verbally and are aimed to deliver a great deal of material to many people
simultaneously. It is more cost effective to lecture to a group than to train people individually.
and with. . Apprenticeships develop employees who can do many different tasks. With the help of plays and simulations trainees learn much quickly. Likely problems and possible solutions are presented better for discussion. Job Rotation involves moving an employee through a series of jobs so that he or she can get a good idea for the tasks that are associated with different jobs.6 Role Playing and Simulation is a training technique that attempts to bring realistic decision making situations to the trainees. which is very good from training point of view. This method is cost effective and is used in marketing and management training. related This type of of training that usually allow involves the several to groups skills apprentice practice in any particular trade within the organizational setup and they take place over a long period of time in which the apprentice works for. This is a good strategy because an employee would not feel disturbed when asked to do any other job. the senior skilled workers. It is usually used in training for supervisory positions. than The saying is that there is no trainer experience exemplified with this type of training. Apprenticeships are especially appropriate for jobs requiring production skills.
They are often used to train prospective managers or marketing personnel. After the introductory period. They allow material already learnt to be bypassed in favor of material with which a trainee is having difficulty. Programmed learning computer-aided instruction and interactive video all have one thing in common.7 Internships and Assistantships are usually a combination of classroom and on the job training. Laboratory Training is conducted for groups by skilled trainers. they allow the trainee to learn at his or her own pace. the instructor need not be present. and the trainee can learn as his or her time allows. . It is usually conducted at a neutral site and is used by upper and middle management trainees to develop a spirit of teamwork and an increased ability to deal with management and peers.
Training usually refers to some kind of organized (and finite it time) event -. Employee development. Or.a seminar. however.8 Is There A Difference Between Training & Development? If we want to maximize training and development results by linking them to performance management we need to understand the difference between training activites and development activities. that's employee development. inclusive "thing". It's often a group activity. That's because it's important that we choose the right mechanism for addressing any needs we have. workshop that has a specific beginning data and end date. For example. If a manager coaches and employee in an ongoing way. if a manager pairs up a relatively new employee with a more experienced employee to help the new employee learns about the job. employees may rotate job responsibilities to learn about the jobs of their colleagues and gain experience so they might . that's really employee development. is a much bigger. but the word training is also used to refer to specific instruction done one on one.
Employees’ performance It is strategic investment. in the training of its members. and only one of its methods for encouraging employee learning. job rotation. The important point here is that different activities are better for the achievement of different results. by an organization. Operational Definition The study variables can be operationally defined as follows. ongoing effort on the part of an employee and the organization for which he or she works to upgrade the . In other words employee development is a broader term that includes training as one. let's say. if the desire is provide an employee with a better understanding of how the department works. job rotation might work very well. For example. Employee motivation is a joint. That's employee development.9 eventually have more promotion opportunities. If the goal is to improve the employee's ability to use a computer based accounting package direct training would be more appropriate than.

Training and development programs Training refers to the methods used to give new or present employees the skills they need to perform their jobs. to enhance the future performance of the organization itself. or increasing skills. Coaching employees to help them determine what they need for to motivate them to perform well like training and development programs. . How we can achieve the motivation and dedication of employees. changing attitudes. Employees Motivation requires a balance between an individual’s career needs and goals and the organization’s need to get work done. The ultimate aim is of course. Employees are the assets of an organization and every organization makes progress and achieves its goals effectively due to the motivation and dedication of its employees.10 employee’s knowledge. Whereas managerial employees’ development is any attempt to improve employees’ performance by imparting knowledge. Training is used to focus mostly on teaching technical skills. is possible through providing them a specific training so that they can be refreshed from time to time and they set to work with motivational manner.

Telecom companies and schools that the training opportunities provided to the employees should be focused on providing such training which enables the professionals to put in their best efforts. It is also designed to evaluate effectiveness of training from of managerial data staff of different through on organizations interviews. It is very essential for enterprises like Five Star Hotels.11 Purpose of Research Although the bottom line for most training and development programs is an improvement in often overall devote The organizational little performance. findings qualitative and gathered questionnaire observations. Based these this study will also provide suggestions for improvement in training programs and will be a help for professionals to improve their performance to a great extent. For instance.

13 CHAPTER 2 LITERATURE REVIEW The origin of HRD can be traced back to apprenticeship training programs in the eighteenth century. clothing and shoes etc. The apprenticeship training was not limited to the skilled workers only but it also covered the training of physicians. educators and attorneys. Employee training and development initiatives can transform organizations. whom the shopkeepers themselves had to train. Even as late as 1920s a person apprenticing in a law office could practice law after passing a state supervised exam (Mintzberg. resolve issues and align cultures to their mission and values. To meet growing demand for their products the owners had to employ additional non skilled workers. such and furniture. During that time small shops operated by skilled artisans produced virtually all household goods. Specialized skill training to the employees not only increases safety and . Employees training allow organizations to achieve management objectives. 1971). For little or no wages these trainees or apprentices learned the craft working for years in the shops until they became proficient in their trade.
Enhanced company image which increase demand for its products. resulting in financial gain. why would an organization not welcome and seek out the value-added benefits resulting from training? Training is not always the answer to performance problems. • • Increased innovation in strategies and products. Increased capacity to adopt new technologies and methods. So. Training and development leads to: • • • Increased job satisfaction and morale among employees. Training that is appropriate to the needs of an organization can add great value. Increased efficiencies in processes.14 productivity but it also leads to higher job satisfaction which highly improves performance of the organization. • • Reduced employee turnover. This is only a partial listing of the many benefits that result from training. Brandt Sakakeeny. Increased employee motivation. training industry analyst for Solomon Smith .
This was followed in descending order by recruitment and selection. “many firms have concluded that it makes more sense to invest in worker training than to build up wage scales in a zero sum competition for the existing limited pool of well qualified workers. Gupta acknowledges that not all performance problems can be addressed by training. A 2000 survey of human resource managers in large organizations ranked training and development as the most important functional area these managers had to deal with. It has been estimated that education and training programs accounted for as much as 26 percent of the increase in US production capacity between 1929 and 1982.15 Barney believes that training can be a great investment and training can be a waste of money (Rosner. Chairman of the US federal reserve board. Training is indeed a waste of money when the desired behavior does not occur. . 1999). Many organizations are including employee education (training and development) as an important and effective part of their organizational strategy. stated that. In 1995 Alan greens. productivity and quality. non-training interventions are necessary (Gupta 1999). In many cases.
younger employees. If employees are willing they will themselves come up and learn. employees’ turnover is high. employees’ job satisfaction. globalization and diversity (Allan Greenspan. acknowledge employees qualities and qualifications and give them the understanding that you need their help and knowhow to run the operation effectively (Trevor. but one must enter by oneself. Gerhart & Boudreau 1997). What you can do is provide the opportunities.16 succession planning. Why don’t you have a chitchat with each one and see what they really want to do in their lives (Maxey. incentives and opportunities for . Focus on the positive points. 1955). You can’t instill a desire in another person to learn or to strive to do better. In hotel industry. Flatter older employees a bit regarding the amount of knowledge and know-how they’ve acquired throughout the years in the company and ask for their help in training the newer. 2002). Developers say a strong training program. Careful selection of workers willing/eager to learn new things is a prerequisite of all T&D efforts. Training and education opens the door. because of tight time schedule and tough duties.

It is our goal to be the employer of choice.17 internal growth are powerful tools that foster an environment that will attract and retain talented employees. 2003). a company can be successful in maintaining a solid work force with proper training and motivation. Organizations that give special training to their employees and there are ample opportunities for promotions and good monetary benefits which encourage the employees to exert themselves and take initiatives to rise to the challenges which gives guaranteed returns to the company. Despite the highly competitive nature of timeshare. It’s essential to devote resources for ongoing training. Introduce such training programs which encourage new hires to perform well and succeed. development of leadership skills and creating opportunities for advancement for candidates within an organization. The author says that his philosophy in terms of attracting employees is having positive results and people from outside are coming in flocks. We are developing future managers from within our labor force. (Milanese. management training and technical courses are available to employees.
The employees want transfer of knowledge in shortest possible time to derive benefits from it. 2001)In Microsoft. giving them the tools to be successful. preferring to use the word readiness to quantify is better. giving salespeople clarity within their roles. These findings are also compared with findings .18 2003)They approach salespeople with an attitude that lets them know training will take an hour of their time to compensate them with skills and information. Buchananm (2008) in this paper reviews studies published between 1964 and May 1968 on laboratory training in human relations and its use in attempts to enhance the effectiveness of organizations. 2001). (Dragon and Chuang. the approach that I took wasn’t to create a training group to ensure that we train these people to be successful. because driving readiness is about being ready to sell in the enterprise…… It’s about. and ensuring that they can do the jobs set out of them (Schuler. I purposely don’t use the word training. After some of the difficulties in conducting such research in this area are considered. findings are examined as they relate to five issues in the design and the application of laboratory training. Salespeople want to know exactly what they can learn in a short time.
In a survey. In Chart’s (2000) Exploratory Benchmark Survey. 56% of companies increased their training budgets last year or planned to increase it this year a finding that is not surprising given the connection between training and retention. Motivational and environmental influences of training effectiveness have received little attention. Employees are of the opinion that training in career development is important for their professional success. 70% of respondents said training had a positive impact on their company’s ability to improve occupancy and overall profitability. Comparing the performance of their companies with that of 1999. They realize that well- . majority of respondents asserted that training also enhances guest and customers satisfaction. This analysis integrates important motivational and situational factors from organizational behavior theory and research into a model which describes how trainees’ attributes and attitudes may influence the effectiveness of training (Noe. 1986).19 from a similar review reported by the author four years ago. 75% confirmed that training increased profits and occupancy rates. Studies of the influence of trainees’ characteristics on the training effectiveness have focused on the level of ability necessary to learn program content.
to selectively assess what business skills are most essential for career success. the results of this study suggest recommendations for developing a comprehensive plan (model) for the creation of effective employee training and development program in Ghana. The purpose of the study was to describe selected successful models of training and development as they may apply to firms. Manu (2004) conducted a study on training and development of firms in Ghana. Most banks see education and training as a key part of their employment equity initiatives. 2001). Fourth. . and their strategic human resources provision. Second. to identify selected managerial techniques that contributes to lost productivity and morale. to describe selected methods of needs assessment for training and development programs for employers and employees. Third. This study was conducted by engaging in comprehensive review and critique of the existing literature on training and development models (Manu.20 trained employees are happier with their jobs and more likely to stay (Berta. 2004). Fifth. their performance enhancement and performance recovery initiatives.
Studies focusing specifically on the role of managers in the process have. The findings obtained are discussed and evaluated .21 There are following five key priority areas: Using the workplace skills plans • • • • • Information technology-related skills development.

• There is a positive impact of Training and development programs on the performance of married employees. On the basis of literature review done above we intend to test the following hypotheses • There is a positive impact of Training and development programs on the performance of senior employees.23 Ojo and Olaniyan (2008) examined the impact of training and development programs on the performance of home economics teachers in Nigeria. The findings of the study revealed that training and development has a positive impact on the performance of home economic teachers. We have followed the methodology of Ojo et al and made it as our base thesis. • There is a positive impact of Training and development programs on the performance of junior employees. . five star hotels and telecom companies operating in Pakistani market. We will apply this methodology to different organizations like banks.
• There is a positive impact of Training and development programs on the performance of male employees.24 • There is a positive impact of Training and development programs on the performance of unmarried employees. . • There is a positive impact of Training and development programs on the performance of female employees.
