Workplace Training has Benefits
When a new employee is hired they usually receive training in connection with the specific details of how to perform their job. A trainer takes the time to show them their physical office, the necessary rooms and the necessary functions of their job. Some training is more complex than others.
Employee orientation is part of a long-term investment in a new employee.
Who’s Left Holding the Bag?
Workplace training allows employees to understand the essential elements of business such as cost competitiveness in the work environment. For example, an employee may want to take home some of the mechanical equipment that is on hand. Perhaps feeling justified because momentarily the equipment is not being used.
Speed and Ease in Today’s Business Training
Workplace training is more specialized in Internet Technology than ever before. Many businesses are retail selling their products from a distribution center of concrete walls. The customer travels to see them, stands in line and makes a purchase. However, with the advent of the computer and the Information age the way people buy commodities is changing. Business is changing and e-commerce is growing. Websites, blog sites and other methods online are attracting customers. The reasons are apparent. Speed and ease. A customer no longer has to make a special trip or stand in long lines to find what they want. A customer only has to click and the ease of sale is actualized. For example, if a customer wants a perfect unique gift then with a simple click of the mouse he arrives at an online shopping store for unique gifts.
Training skills must include teaching new customers how to use the shopping cart. Training skills must include teaching business how to support an online business.
Concrete Blocks Strategic Solution
Organizational development skills includes more than business planning. Collecting all the building blocks or materials is essentially business planning. Organizational development skills move beyond instruction on the basic training skills for successful businesses and provide informative instruction on advanced planning. For example, one of the advanced training skills in an executive workplace training program is preparing a strategic plan. This important is because it reduces mistakes from happening. To illustrate this point, your company has been given five free cement blocks. Wow, you say a free gift! But how do you get them to the office? These five free cement blocks are perfectly square but they weigh 200 tons each. So, how do you transport them? This certainly is going to cost money, time and effort. Therefore, learning the concepts of strategy, was this really a ‘free’ gift? What was its end-value? Strategic planning helps the executive to see the end-value of their decisions.
