Thread Started by #Neha-HR Professional

Dear All,
Greetings.
I am working with Metro Infrasys Private Limited, an emerging leader in the field of Intelligent Transportation System. I am working here an HR Manager. We want to bring a culture of training and development among our team members. We want to organize technical as well as soft skill trainings.
Kindly suggest ways to initiate the same.
Looking forward to hear from you.
Thanks & Regards

Dear Neha

Good to note that you would like to start training and development in your company. In this connection, you may note the following:

a) Training is conducted to bring a organisational change. Therefore, your focus should be on the organisational and not on individual change.

b) Employee training is only a medium and not an end in itself. End result should be reduction of some cost that organisation incurs in the course of its operations. If not cost then be clear which ratio you would like to increase or decrease.

c) To reduce the cost, the first requirement is to measure the various costs associated with your business. Therefore, you first requirement is how to identify and measure the costs scientifically.

d) Measurement of training effectiveness is measurement of cost before the training and cost after the training. Difference is ROI on training.

e) Any training that does not reduce the cost or increase/decrease some ratio is humbug.

f) Training/HR professional's job is not just delivery or presentation skills but to study/understand the systems and processes and identify where and how revenue leakage is taking place. Your training efforts should be directed to plug that leakage.

g) Further, Training/HR Professional's job is not just spend the training budget or execute the training calendar. Their quintessence lies in creating knowledge resources and facilitate a culture of learning or culture of self-learning. Your staff members should not wait till the company trains them.

Dear Neha,

My comments are as below: -

a) Stress is output and input. Stress is a result and not a cause. So address your training efforts to the cause and not towards the result. If you conduct the training on stress management, without curing the cause, you will require training once again.

b) Stress is a cause of organisational as well as personal factors. Fix the organisational factors first. Personal factors will follow automatically. Organisational factors include:

i) Improper manpower planning

ii) Improper recruitment (a square peg in round hole?)

iii) Lack of requisite skills among the staff members

iv) Management sets the goal but gives the wrong direction or no direction.

v) Management has its own clique and they listen to only those few.

vi) Excessive emphasis on customer satisfaction.

vii) Lack of well-defined system and process. When the systems and processes are not well-defined, the staff who are recruited from diverse companies, do not unlearn. They bring the baggage of the wisdom from their past companies and start off-loading it in their current company. This creates a classic hodgepodge.

viii) Slavish or sheepish adherence of the process. Since the process is not flexible, staffs end up in missing wood for the trees.

viii) Recurrence of the same mistakes. This happens because of attrition.

ix) Management is eager to benchmark against industry leaders blindly. But then they cannot bring the culture of those companies into their own company.

x) Management treats high-performers differently. But then these fair-haired chaps merrily rub other employees the wrong way.

c) Yoga is another method of curing training this is what yoga trainers say. However, these problems arising out of humdrum activities of corporate life cannot have a spiritual solution. If the water in the pot is boiling, then we must locate the knob and put the fire off. Yoga or any other stress handling remedy is something like putting ice cubes in the boiling pot to reduce the temperature. As the ice melts, add few more ice cubes! But then this is not a permanent remedy to reduce the temperature.

d) There is a lot of material available on stress management. Many trainers download it and use it for the training (this includes me also). However, I have not come across with any trainer who has told me confidently that he could fix the employee stress permanently. So training efforts are like water off a duck's back.

These are my candid views. My candidness may ruffle the feathers of a few of my fellow HR/trainers but my intention was not to do that!

Thanks,

Dinesh Divekar
