Introduction

Training and development Training and development is another important department in human resources. It specialises on getting its employees to their full potential therefore making the business more efficient thus creating productivity hence making more money! Why train? By making the employee better at the job they were hired to do it gives them confidence, making them feel like they have mastered their job, which increases job satisfaction. Also, by making the employees 'better' then the advantages could be ==> i) Fewer accidents>>>>> fewer accidents means cheaper insurance premiums and also less court cases for claims to personal injury of which there are many these days. ii) Employees become more versatile and adaptable>>>>> this has its obvious benefits of employees becoming able to do more then what they were employed for, Which means there isn't as greater need to employ new people. iii) Greater productivity and better quality>>>>> as it says, with training the overall quality of your employee's work will increase with more of it coming as well. iv) Less need for close supervision>>>>> before, if a employee needed supervision then this would take up someone else's time and effort. After training this would become obsolete and unnecessary. v) Less scrapped work>>>>> as the amount of mistakes would dramatically decrease, so would the amount of scrapped work. vi) Higher job satisfaction>>>>> this will prove itself by the annual labour turnover dropping and also less absence from employees. vii) Better attitudes>>>>> training can help develop right attitudes in employees and in certain jobs, attitude can be just as important as skills or knowledge. Reasons for training Even though most companies train as part of their routine with UFI being no exception, every so often an event my happen which will require extra training ==> * A realisation that the business isn't performing well>>>>> if the businesses profits drop then training may be the only answer. ...read more.

This is a chance for the employee to give his/her opinion about the training, I.e. if it was good or bad, was it worth the company's money or not? This is a clever thing to do by UFI because they then know where the training needs to be improved and of it is worth it overall. This is an example of Quality Control.

Also every year UFI release a "UFI Learning and development programme" (SEE BELOW) this gives general information to the companies employees about what UFI have planned for the year. This features a FAQ section which answers all the questions that employees might want to ask and if there isn't an answer there that they want then there are some contact numbers at the end to ring up for enquiries. Again UFI succeed in doing everything necessary to inform their employees about what's happening in the business and how they can get about doing it themselves. ...read more.
