Training and Pre-Planning Is Key
Introduction
In my case study, Carl Robbins, a campus recruiter for ABC, Inc., has been made aware of multiple issues a couple weeks before the new hire orientation that he scheduled. Given that the ABC campus recruiter, Carl Robbins, had six months of experience and was developing difficulties with the pre-planning for his new hire orientation, I conclude that the company ABC needs to provide better training to personnel, improve conference room reservation procedures, and provide a checklist to recruiters for new hire packets.
Background
In early April, Carl Robins successfully recruited 15 new hires to work for Monica Carrols. He has only been working for ABC, Inc. for six months, and this was his first recruitment mission. He scheduled a new hire orientation that would take place on June 15 because he wanted the new hires to start working by July. On May 15, Monica contacted him in reference to the training schedule, orientation manuals, and other issues that involved the recruits he hired in April. Carl reassured Monica that everything would be done on time in accordance with the planned schedule. After Memorial Day, Carl decided to look over the new trainee files to make sure all the paperwork was completed before orientation. He then realized that a couple of the recruits did not have their applications completed and their transcripts were not on file. On top of this, none of the recruits had been to the clinic to receive their mandatory drug test. After discovering this, he looked for the orientation manuals and discovered that there were only three incomplete copies. Carl did not expect to discover these issues when he examined the files. After Carl gathered his thoughts, he decided to check the conference room that he reserved for…...

Strategic Planning, Learning Theory, and Training Needs Analysis

...Strategic planning, learning theory, and training needs analysis Benoitte Muzitu Professor JEANETTE HORNER-SMITH BUS 407 07/28/2011 1. The training process model refers to steps which are taken in order to ensure company growth, and business change. When managing any training process, it is usually recommend that company leaders work closely with functional department heads and Human Resources personnel in following a systematic approach to training. A good system will help attack training problems using a “rifle” approach, rather than a “shotgun” approach. The following are five generic steps or phases in the model that we as trainers simply call A.D.D.I.E. These steps will help build a training program, and will increase chances of assembling an effective program. By analyzing the need, or performing a “needs assessment,” is crucial in identifying the information that must be addressed in the program. This is where the question, “What do we want our employees to get out of the program?”  is asked. A great way to complete this phase is to perform a “gap analysis” by comparing current results to the desired performance. Another way to perform this phase is to treat team members as stakeholders in the process, much like we treat customers. Get their help by asking for specifications for the training. After all, they know where they need help...particularly when it comes to delivering a better product or dealing with customers. This analysis is also useful in......

...How training and development supports business growth Introduction Tesco is the largest British retailer and is also the world’s third largest grocery retailer with outlets across Europe, USA and Asia. The business began in 1919 with one man, Jack Cohen, selling groceries from a stall in the East End of London. Jack bought surplus stocks of tea from a company called T.E. Stockwell. T.E. Stockwell and Cohen combined their names to brand the tea Cohen originally sold – TESCO tea. In 1929, the first Tesco store opened in north London. Tesco has expanded since then by a combination of acquisition of new stores, retail services and by adapting to the needs of consumers. Tesco has net profits (before tax) of around £3 billion. Tesco’s primary aim is ‘to serve the customer’. Keeping existing customers happy is important, as they are more likely to return. This is more cost effective for the business than acquiring new ones. In the UK Tesco now has over 2,200 stores ranging from the large Extra hypermarket style stores to small Tesco Express high street outlets. Tesco’s original product range of grocery and general merchandise has diversified to include banking, insurance services, electrical goods as well as telephone equipment and airtime. This move towards ‘one stop shopping’ means customers can meet all their purchasing needs from one place. Tesco has also expanded its customer base through its Tesco.com website which attracts one million regular users. As the company has grown...

In education, the planning tool is the lesson plan, which is a detailed description of an instructor’s course of instruction for an individual lesson. Lesson plans communicate to learners what they will learn and how they will be assessed. They help instructors organize content, materials, time, instructional strategies, and assistance in the classroom. Lesson planning help instructors create a smooth instructional flow and relate instructions to learners. Adults participate in continuing professional development for a number of reasons. With most adults is the need to maintain and/or improve current skills and abilities that are relevant to ones job. The reasons for participation are generally external to traditional academic expectations, such as fulfilling degree requirements. As such, developing instructional materials for adults requires a deeper level of understanding of the motivations, needs, and reasons behind their participation in a learning environment. The purpose of this guide is to provide curriculum developers and teachers of adults with information leading to a more balanced understanding of how and why adults learn, the rationale behind course development methods and techniques for this audience, and......

...Suggested Answers to Review Questions 1. Why is training expensive? What are the costs involved? Total dollars budgeted annually for formal training of organizations with 100 or more employees exceeds $56 billion. Most of the training money, 66 percent, pays the salaries of training specialists. The second largest expenditure is for seminars and conferences, followed closely by custom materials. Additional costs include such things as hardware, off-the-shelf materials, facilities, travel costs, and refreshments. Many of the skills being taught today (e.g. leadership, teamwork, conflict resolution) are more expensive to learn than skills (e.g. computer programs, typing, assembly work) because they require more training time and more time to change behavioral habits. 2. Do you believe that acceptance of training programs would be higher in organizations classified as learning organizations? Why? Yes. This belief is based on the definition of a learning organization by Peter Senge. He described them as places “where people continually expand their capacity to create the results they truly desire, where new and expansive patterns of thinking are nurtured, where collective aspiration is set free, and where people are continually learning how to learn together.” 3. What are the main purposes of orientation programs? What aspects of orientation seem to be the most neglected? An orientation program is an attempt to send clear messages and to (a) provide accurate information......
