Employees can choose to receive training when they are at home, in the workplace, in a hotel when on a business trip or any other place of their choosing, at their convenience. Apprenticeship is a type of training which involves a long -term obligation to work under a skilled worker in return for training in that skill. Apprenticeship involves working under a skilled worker to learn his trade. Other types of training include on-the-job training, vestibule training, and job rotation. Vestibule training involves in-house training, but it is in an area separate from the normal pressures of the position. What the employee produces during Vestibule Training may be actually used by the company, but the important thing is that he is in a separate area specifically for training.

Managerial employees are normally trained using seminars and conferences, case studies, on-the-job experiences, role playing and behavior modeling . Behavior modeling is a training method that shows the trainees the preferred behavior and then allows them to practice that behavior and receive feedback. On-the-job experiences for managers would include coaching, understudy assignments, lateral transfer and job rotation. A lateral transfer involves horizontal movement of the manager to a different department, so that he or she can experience new skills and develop new knowledge. A career development program is one that matches the needs of the employee with those of the company but in order to be successful it must have the complete support of the top management. A leadership development plan is one usually adopted by companies undergoing strategic change or creating a transnational organizational foundation. Leadership activities are usually stressed when strategic change is occurring in a company. When creating a transnational structure, leadership issues arise, as the competencies required for traditional international managers are different to those required for a transnational role. Bottom of Form The practice of benchmarking training and development against those recognized industry leaders is gaining popularity as a means to measure the effectiveness of such programs. Benchmarking is a relatively straightforward way of comparing different training programs and evaluating their effectiveness. The American Society for Training and Development has a project that allows various companies to compare training programs, costs, staffing etc. Performance Appraisals On the surface, one may think that performance appraisals are only for determining whether an employee is doing a good job or not but in actuality, they can be used for a variety of administrative and developmental purposes. The developmental aims of appraisals are to evaluate the employee’s performance, critique it, provide suggestions for improvement, discuss training and set new goals.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
