Training

The Human Resources Part:

The human resources department organise all the training that all

staff must take before working at Sainsbury’s. All training is the

same for everyone and every single employee must be trained as human

resources make them do it.

Why New And Old Staff Should Be Trained:

On job advertisements human resources keep qualifications to a minimum

requirement for the job that they are advertising. This is because HR

knows that they can train the employees to work at the requirement

they are set for their specific job.

There are several important reasons why all new staff should be

trained. Here are a couple:-

* New employees need to be made familiar with organisational methods

of working that may have been different from their previous jobs.

* New health and safety requirements need to be taught to new

employees.

* They may need extra training for their specific job. E.g. the

employee use to be a shelf stacker in an old supermarket but in

their new job they are going to be a checkout assistant at another

supermarket.

* Employees are more motivated if they continue to learn and develop

their skills. They maybe also eligible for a promotion within the

business if they have gained good quality experience and even

better or new qualifications than before.

* Newly promoted employees may need new training to be able to cope

with new responsibilities they are given.

* HR may introduce new methods of working, new equipment or software

that the employees need to learn how to use. Keeping the staff

up-to-date is what Sainsbury’s HR department calls this.

* Last of all, employees may want to improve and extend their

knowledge of their skills so they can do more varied work.

Induction Training:

Human resources must ensure that all new staff are settled, understand

their job and their contribution to its aims and objectives. This is

all done in an induction programme. The new employees will spend a

short time learning about Sainsbury’s, touring the workplace around

them, finding out about health and safety requirements and their

rights and responsibilities as an employee. They will be introduced to

their colleagues and receive training and support for the first few

weeks. This is important for human resources as it makes the employees

settle in quicker, become more productive faster and make fewer
