Approaches to in-house training
The survey includes a number of possible approaches to skills training within the company. “Rapid learning is key to an organisation’s success. In a knowledgebased economy, people’s ability to absorb and process new information, and adapt quickly to new realities are critical to the continued success of an organisation. This creates a need for an innovative approach to training both teams and individuals,” it imparts. Among the strategies are: e-learning programmes a proven way to develop skills such as leadership, time management, communications, teamwork and client care; tracking learners’ progress, since many learners and interns move through training or acquire qualifications, with no clear record of how the process has advanced their career or added value to their organisation; and the efficient use of limited training resources.
