EFFECTIVE TRAINING IN WORK ORGANISATIONS
Isobel de Castro.
Characteristics of training: The operation of organizations, large or small, requires staffing with competent personnel - personnel who are able to contribute to the attainment of organizational goals through theperformance of their jobs and activities.The general education system is not designed to teach specific job skills for positions in particular companies or organizations. As a result, young people who enter the labour force each year, are not prepared to perform jobs in work organizations. They must be trained.Even those who have studied a technical or professional field of work must receive some initial training.Moreover, because the technology of our productive processes is developing at such a rapid pace there is also a need for continued retraining of people already working in organizations, to be able to perform new and changed jobs.The importance of training in modern societies is shown clearly by the amount of money spent in training programs, either in Europe, the USA and Canada or Pacific industrial exporting countries.
