Present your arguments/comments/conclusion When a part-time staff completed one week off-Job training and pass the appraisal, then no training course will be given to them anymore.
Therefore, we recommend the organization may give regular training for the part-time staff to keep their Besides, Hong Kong is an international city with different nationalities, so the engage is also different, if the organization can provide different kinds of language courses to staff, employees will be able to enhance the face of difficulties about language. Moreover, we suggest department manager to establish a report to evaluate the training according. The report must show the different results between getting the training course before and after. Is it getting better performance after the training or haven’t change?
If no change, the company needs to provide more or fire them. Then, HECK College administers the training needs analysis (TAN) for staff to identify he employees’ learning needs. With this information, they can design the instructional content and materials. The training includes enhancing knowledge and guidance to new trainees through on-the-Job training, teaching employees how to use the betting systems, greeting and serving customers via simulated call centre, as well as gaining a comprehensive understanding of the Club’s core businesses through lecturing.
HECK has adopted the four-step training process: needs analysis, instructional design, implementation and evaluation. Through these steps, they can formulate a hysteretic and comprehensive training for their staff to boost work performance and efficiency. Based on the needs analysis, they have used a variety of training, each of which focuses on different skills areas. One advantage of providing varied training is that they can cater for individual’s learning needs. Unfortunately, it is found that follow-up is not carried out in their model. They have not provided substitute staff to take the Job of the staff who received training.
This may cause some negative effects such as decreasing productivity or work efficiency, effecting counter service and staff morale. It is suggested that follow-up should be administered. They could do a survey in the form of questionnaires and interviews so as to get the feedback from the trainees instead of Just requiring the trainers to submit a report. With this information, they can improve the existing modes of training and learning materials for future training. As a whole, HECK has provided a comprehensive and high-quality training for their trainees. That’s why their customer service can remain high over the years.
