According to The Encyclopedia of Business, On-the-job training is by far the predominant form of job training. Studies also indicate that it is the most effective form of job training. Yet, it also represents a significant investment considering that roughly 30% of a new worker's time is spent in on-the-job training during the first 90 days of employment, that productivity of experienced workers assigned to train new workers may decrease during the training period, and that new workers may make expensive mistakes.
Both companies and workers therefore profit largely from the presence of simple, but complete trainee and trainer guides that allow for executing OJT in a structured way.
“How to perform on-the-job training”, has the information, techniques and tips that will allow you to implement a professional OJT training program. The book also includes all the tools, documents and checklists necessary for setting up a qualitative and efficient skills training program.
