Objective of the project:

            To study the effectiveness of the training imparted by NIS- Sparta and its resultant in
             the performance of the employees.

            To know the perception of the employees regarding training methods in Reliance
             Communication

            To identify how training assists the employees to acquire skills,knowledge and attitude
             and also enhance the same.

            To study whether training helps to motivate employees and helps in avoiding mistakes.




Research methodology:



                                                  7
For our project we required information like knowledge about the employees understanding ,skills
generated and the mastery gained during the training. Hence we have taken a insight at the
performance of the employees through evaluation of performance, through questionnaires and data
received by the management.


QUESTIONNAIRE:

In this method, a list of questions related to subject is prepared and given to participants. The
questionnaire contains questions and provides space. A request is made to participants to fill up the
questionnaire and send it back within a specified time.




Advantages:

Can reach many people in a short time. Is relatively inexpensive. Gives opportunity of expression
without fear of embarrassment. Yields data easily summarized and reported.




Limitations:

Little provision for free expression of unanticipated responses. May be difficult to construct. It has
limited effectiveness in getting at the causes of problems and possible solutions.




SCOPE OF THE PROJECT:




                                                   8
      The scope/range of this project report is not too far stretching to the whole of Reliance
       Communication, Pune rather it only covers the training and development activities conducted
       By NIS – Sparta for its employees.

      My project mainly deals with the present method of training given at Reliance
       Communication during my tenure of the project, July – August 2008.


      This project covers training, training programmed, and training evaluation and excludes all
       other human resources activities conducted before and after training.




Research tool:

Questionnaires and the evaluation of the performance to check the effectiveness of training imparted.

The questions were both structured and unstructured.



1. Population and Sample size:

The number of employees working in Reliance communication, Pune, swargate is nearly 200
employees and it is still expanding. Out of which I have selected a sample of 25 people who have
undergone the training programme in the last six months to have a flavor of the new practices in
training.




2. Major findings:

            Employees are content with the way the training is conducted.




                                                 9
           The cooperation between the colleagues and the level of support they share with each
            other binds them in an attachment towards the company.

           Regional behavior and language influence is higher during training and even after
            delivering their language; the desired effects are not seen.

           Some of the superiors do not bother to make Development Action Plans and submit to
            the trainers.

           The training is mainly conducted all around India, the trainers have to travel but
            sometimes the logistics and arrangement is non-satisfactory.

           The findings from the data analysis from the questionnaire show a positive
            improvement, enhancing and overall rating about the training programme.

           The reality learning and simulations were thoroughly enjoyed by the employees who
            have received it.




3. Suggestions

    In today‘s competitive world, attitude is the factor which is the dividing line between failure
     and success. Thus recruitment of the employees must be made not only on skills and attitude
     but also the attitude of the employee. If an employee has a positive attitude then training for
     him can be more effective, he has a positive effect on the climate.




                                                10
    The raining records must be maintained, preserved properly and updated timely.

    Proper care should be taken while selecting the trainers.

    Nis Sparta trainers must be given continuous feedback and the training should be performed
     as a continuous planned activity.

    New and different trainers should be invited so that the maximum impact can be got from
     the training programmes.

    Co –ordination and interaction of the employees of all levels must be encouraged to locate
     new talents among employees.

    Solution to some of the problems faced by the employees, should be suggested by the
     employees themselves to make them feel valued at the organization.

    The DAP( Development Action Plans) must be prepared and given to the trainers as soon as
     possible for further follow up from the side of the trainers.




4. Conclusion

Analysis of all the facts & figures, the observations and the experience during the training period
gives a very positive conclusion/ impression regarding the training imparted by the NIS – Sparta
trainers. The NIS – Sparta is performing its role up to the mark and the trainees enjoy the training
imparted especially the reality learning and simulation.

The training imparted meets the objectives like:
          Effectiveness of the training and its resultant in the performance of the employees.



                                                 11
            Assists the employees to acquire skills, knowledge and attitude and also enhance the
             same.
            Helps to motivate employees and helps in avoiding mistakes.

It becomes quite clear that there is no other alternative or short cut to the development of human
resources. If we have to meet the challenges of technology, social and economic we have to train the
HR irrespective to their category at which they work in the organization.

As it is recognized fact that we cannot survive in tomorrow business‘s world with yesterdays
method. And hence the continuous development of HR is prime need of todays organization.

INTRODUCTION TO THE STUDY

HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT


Human Resource Management is defined as the people who staff and manage organization. It
comprises of the functions and principles that are applied to retaining, training, developing, and
compensating the employees in organization. It is also applicable to non-business organizations,
such as education, healthcare, etc Human Resource Management is defined as the set of activities,
programs, and functions that are designed to maximize both organizational as well as employee
effectiveness

Scope of HRM without a doubt is vast. All the activities of employee, from the time of his entry into
an organization until he leaves, come under the horizon of HRM.

The divisions included in HRM are Recruitment, Payroll, Performance Management, Training and
Development, Retention, Industrial Relation, etc. Out of all these divisions, one such important
division is training and development.



TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT is a subsystem of an organization. It ensures that randomness
is reduced and learning or behavioral change takes place in structured format.

Hence I have taken this topic for my project. My project deals with training and development
of the employees at reliance communication. The training is imparted by NIS Sparta. On July
7, 2004, Reliance Infocomm acquired NIS Sparta, Asia's premier Performance Enhancement
Solutions organization, making yet another addition to the Reliance family.


Following are the areas of Training & Development I tried to cover-up in my work.


   1)      Studying training activities


   2)      Analyzing training programme


   3)      Evaluating the training.


The study shows the scope in the field of T & D ranges rights from recruiting an employee at any
level and how to treat them throughout their working year till the time he discharged or retired from
the organization.




                                                 15
                                               MY PROJECT

The project report presented here is primarily concerned with training and development part of
employees in the organization.

Training and development is always an important aspect of the growth of a company and the
individual employees as well. Due to daily changing business environment, manufacturing process,
technological advancement and rapid growth in the demand of the products and services etc the
workforce of any organization has to be very well equipped with the skills, ability, and talent
required to cope up with the market competition.

     Now a days many organizations are conducting training programme to improve the
     productivity of employees.

     The quality of employees and their development through training and education are major
     factors    in determining long term profitability of a business. If you hire and keep good
     employees, it is good policy to invest in the development of their skills, so they can increase
     their productivity. Training often is considered for new employees only; this is mistake
     because ongoing training for current employees helps them adjust to rapidly changing job
     requirements.

      Evaluation       is       the     systematic    appraisal        by     which       we     determine
     the worth, value or meaning of something to someone , In case of training we are concerned
     with providing information on the effectiveness of the training activity to decision makers who
     will make decision based on the information . Evaluation plays a significant part in every step
     of the training process.

    It is important that evaluation be a planned or systematic effort that is built from the start of the
     training process.

                The main objective of training programme to determine if they are accomplishing
     specific        training         objectives,    i.e.,correcting        performance        deficiencies.
     .



                     IMPORTANCE OF TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT



                                                     16
          Training and development is a routine based, non-stop practice, which a growing
          business organization must conduct to achieve their production target.

          From organizational point of view it is very crucial to assure the quality, quantity, and
          effectiveness etc of the product by the means of suitable training.

          Development of the employee comes handy with training activities, making them much
          more capable in out performing various activities with high professions and accuracy by
          using advance technical/mechanical tools and equipments.

          As a management trainee I myself come through various aspects like performance
          appraisal, payroll management, labors related laws and issues etc during my training and
          development project.




                              Evaluating the productivity of the employees can very well
recognize how to distribute your workforce. This information gathered after conducting training
programmed which is immensely helpful for the human resources manager and the whole
department.

Training helps measure the performance of the employees by evaluating the training given and
comparing the individual and group's latest output with the output given before training
programmed.




SCOPE OF THE PROJECT :




The scope/range of this project report is not too far stretching to the whole of Reliance
Communication, Pune rather it only covers the training and development activities conducted By
NIS – Sparta for its employees.

My project mainly deals with the present method of training given at Reliance Communication
during my tenure of the project, July – August 2008

This project covers training, training programmed, and training evaluation and excludes all other
human resources activities conducted before and after training.



                                               17
HYPOTHESIS:

                                    Training and Development activities conducted by NIS Sparta
Reliance Communication are effective and the employees are better performers after the training is
imparted.




LIMITATIONS:



The project is a collection of study, observation, and practical experience during my summer
internship programmed where i was a member of the team working in the training and development
of employees




                                               18
I tried to perform this project in best possible manner to avoid any lacuna or lack ness. In spite of all
my efforts

In this regard but due to the far stretching activities conducted at Reliance Communications, my
project lack in some of the following heads
Where there is a chance of further elaborating study on the same subject.



       Some information being very sensitive as far as organization is concerned is left untouched
       and not mentioned in any way.

       Top-level strategic type of decisions and information too are not taken under study to avoid
       any favor to the business counter parts.

       My project does not concerned about the designing and planning of training activities which
       forms a crucial and major part of this field hence a full fledge study can be done in this area.

       The data presented here is taken by prepared questionnaire (open ended and closed ended)
       and information and feedback received from the management.

       No research has been conducted on this topic for the purpose of this project thus holds a
       complete field research and development.

       Due to Time Constraints, I was not able to touch all aspects of training and development.

       Due to security reasons, I could not attend the training conducted which would give me a
       practical experience.

When the candidates are recruited from outside or selected, promoted from inside, it is expected that
they must perform their jobs with maximum efficiency and competence. Therefore after selecting the
candidates, the next logical step is to train them for better performance. Era of vocational training
                                                                        th
started during industrial revolution, which took place in Britain in 18 century. The apprentice‘s
working n different factories use to get vocational training in the form of direct instructions in the
operation of machines. Thereafter specially when use of computers, automatic machines increased
and because of rapidly changing techniques the need of training is recognized as one of the most
important organizational activities.


           Training is required to be given to employees to keep them updated effective and efficient.
At present, it is observed that all organizations, of whatever types they may be, need to have well
trained experienced and skilled people to perform various activities. If current job occupants meet
this requirement, in that case, training is not important but if it is not the case, it is very essential to
raise the skill levels, increase the versatility and adaptability of the job occupants by giving them
necessary and appropriate training.

Needs Assessment: Needs assessment diagnoses present and future challenges to be met
through training and development Needs assessment occurs at two levels- Group and
individual.

An Individual obviously needs training when her or his performance falls short of standars i.e.
when there is performance deficiency

Assessment of training needs occurs at the group level too.Any change in the organization‘s
strategy necessitates training of group of employees.

              Training Objectives:

To raise the productivity :Increased human performance often directly leads to increased
operational productivity and increased company profit.

To improve quality in work : Improvement in quality may be in relation to company‘s
product / service.

To improve health and safety : Proper training can help prevent industrial accidents.

Outdated prevention : Training and development programmes foster the initiative and
creativity of employees and help to prevent manpower obsolenscence, which may be due to



                                             33
age, temperament or mptivation or the inability of a person to adapt himself to technological
changes.

To improve organization climate: An endless chain of positive reactions results from a well-
planned training programme. Production and product quality may improve , financial
incentives may then be increased, less supervisory pressure may result.

            Personal growth: Management development programmes seem to give participants
a wider awareness , an enlarged skill, and enlightened altruistic philosophy, and make
enhanced personal growth.

                     SELECTION OF TRAINEES

Trainees should be selected on the basis of self-nomination, recommendations of supervisorsor
by the HR department itself.

                     SELECTION OF TRAINERS

following

            1. Immediate supervisors,

            2. Co-worker,

            4. Soecialists in other parts of the company,

            5. Outside consultants,

                     TRAINING METHODS


                                            34
 On-the-job training : Almost every employee, from the clerk to company president gets
some ―on-the-job training‖,when he joins a firm. Under this method, an employee is placed in
a new job and is told how it may be performed.It is primarily concerned with developing is an
employee skills and habits consistent with the existing practices of an organization, and with
orienting him to his immediate problems.

Vestibule training (training-centre training): Vestibule training method attempts to
duplicate on-the-job situation in a company classroom. It is a classroom training which is often
imparted with the help of equipment and machines which are identical with those in use in the
place of work.This methods enables the trainee to concentrate on learning the new skill rather
than on performing an actual job.Theoretical training is given in the classroom while the
practical work is conducted on the production line.It is a very efficient technique of training
semi skilled personnel e.g.clerk, machine operation , testers,typists etc. Training is in the form
of lectures, conferences, case studies, role-playing and discussion.

Demonstrations and examples : In the demonstration techniques,the trainer describes and
displays. When he teaches an employee how to do something by actually performing activities
himself and by going through a step-by-explaination of ―why‖ and ―what‖ he is doing.
Demonstrations are effective techniques in teaching as it is easier to show a person how to do a
job then to tell him or ask him to gather instruction from the reading material. Demonstrations
are often used in combination with lectures,pictures,text materials,discussions etc.

Simulation : Simulation is atechnique which duplicates the actual condition encountered on a
job. Trainees‘ interest and employees‘ motivation are high in simulation exercises because he
actions of a trainee closely duplicate the ―real job‖ conditions. This method is essential in
cases in which actual on-the-job practice might result in a serious injury,a costly errors. This
technique is a very expensive one.

Apprenticeship : Apprenticeship training is the oldest and most commonly used methods.It is
a training in crafts,trades and in technical areas.A major part of training time is spent on-the-
job production work

           Classroom training:



                                            35

principles,attitude,method can be useful when large group are to be taught.The lecture metho
can be useful when large groups are to be trained within a short time, thus reducing the cost per
trainee.

b)         The Conference Method : In this technique, the participating individuals confer to
discuss points of common interest to each other. Conference is a formal meeting, conducted
according to organized plan.

c)         Seminar or team discussion : There are different methods of conducting seminar. It
may be based on paper prepared by one or more trainees on the subject in consulting with the
person in charge of the seminar.

explainations, initiates the discussion going. When the trainees are given cases to analyse.

  1. Outbound Training Programmes
  2. Business Simulations



Adventure Based Learning Experience (ABLE®)

One of the ways in which Reality Learning® is executed is through
Adventure Based Learning Experiences (ABLE). ABLE® is a war
simulation scenario drawing from the learning of strategy and tactics
applied in military science. Participants in the learning intervention
are placed in a highly competitive and uncertain environment where
the need is to achieve a pre-determined objective.

ABLE® uses multiple simulation formats to address differing
requirements. For instance, ABLE® can be designed as a Leadership
Program, a Team Building Program, a Management Development
Program and even a programme designed to develop the Killer
Instinct in sales teams. ABLE® equipment comprises of wireless
sets, laptops, maps, compass, and other select equipments.
ABLE® becomes especially unique as it also captures emotions like disappointment, stress, anger,
enthusiasm and joy, apart from skills, to facilitate the process of translating learning into practice.

Business Simulations
Experiential learning forms the basis of Business Simulations. Experiential learning is a key driver
of everything we do, and is a distinct point of difference in the marketplace. Experiential learning
fosters an environment of accelerated learning through self-discovery and participation.

All Business Simulations enable people to make permanent, effective changes in behaviour by
understanding the wide range of consequences of their choices and accepting responsibility for
them. Powerful learning emerges in debrief when the participant‘s experiences are linked to their
real-world situations. People see, understand and experience how their own behavior can change
to significantly and positively impact their performance back on their job.

                         CONDUCTING A TRAINING PROGRAMME

                                       Now-days, training programs are gaining importance because
they help to solve various problems, which out of the introduction, of new lines of production,
severe competition, changes in design and technique of production, change in the volume of
business, etc. Training programs enhance overall organizational efficiency and effectiveness.
Training has become a very significant management tool for bringing about desired changes in order
to solve organizational problems and also to achieve organizational goals. Therefore to be very
effective, the training function is required to be organized properly and systematically.


Training programs consists of five steps .the first, or need analysis step, identifies the specific job
performance skills needed, assesses the prospective training skills, and develops specific, measurable
knowledge and performance objectives based on any deficiencies. In the second step, instructional
design, you decide on, compile and produce the training program content. There may be a third
validation step, in which bugs are worked out of the training program by presenting it to a small
representative audience. The fourth step is to implement the program by actually training the
targeted employee group. Fifth step is an evaluation step, in which management assesses the
program's successes or failures.

                                        STEPS OF TRAINING


                   i. IDENTIFICATION OF TRAINING:

The training needs are identified by Concern Validation Studies (CVS) and the gaps are filled by
providing training. The training needs can be identified by the immediate superiors or by the
employee‘s performance appraisal.

The training needs are identified:

           At the time of interview

           Annual appraisal

           Training identification format

           Specific recommendations by functional head




                          (2) DECIDING THE OBJECTIVE OF TRAINING:




                                                44
 The gathered information is forwarded to human resources officials for consultation and then the
training objectives are established.

The training objective is prepared after finding the requirement of training whether the gaps are
about knowledge, skill or attitude. Then the objective of training is established and efforts to
accomplish started.



                    (3) TRAINING PLAN


Based on the collected data and discussions with hr manager training plan is prepared.
The training plan is prepared. The training calendar is prepared monthly with the name of the
trainees and the trainer.



                  (4)     TRAINING METHODS & TOOLS

Considering the type of training, a suitable training method and required tools and equipments are
finalized. The venue is finalized and all logistics are prepared. The methods and tools are also
finalized once the type of training is decided whether it is knowledge, skill or attitude.




                  (5)     TRAINING IMPLEMENTATION:


List of employees are first of all collected with there name, designations and department and than a
proper schedule with date, day and time and venue is finalized and all the employees are made aware
of.

The training is conducted and completed as per the schedule.


   At Reliance communication training is conducted for each business:
    Personal, Enterprise, Global, Home and World.

The training given mainly resolves around Knowledge of the products and processes for each
vertical and level.




                                                 45
The Concern Validation Studies (CVS) is done to identify the gaps and then here we see that he is
suitable for that job or he requires more training to do the job. We consider his previous skill and
qualifications etc.

When candidate is appearing for an interview, we ask him about the training which he has
undergone in previous program. If there is necessity for any specific skill then we are training him
accordingly.

In annual appraisal there are two types of appraisals. One is self-appraisal and other head of
department appraisal. In appraisal there is point mentioned if they require any specific training for
updating their job. Like wise, head of department is asked to write that did he require any specific
training to update his job requirement.


 The skill and attitude training is imparted by reality learning and NIS Academy teaches attitude only
.In that we sent training identification form to the concerned head of the department with his
departmental list along with list the training programs.

We sent candidates for training in house/ external depending upon the nature of training.

After identification of training needs, we prepare the training calendar on yearly basis. For this we
seek the following information. Nominate the persons for program, finding the faculty, venue for the
program and training. Based on this we are preparing annual calendar.

Based on the annual calendar we prepare annual budget for training and seek the approval.

After training calendar is ready, we inform the nominee, faculties and book venue for training
program and the logistics involved is arranged.


                                        POST TRAINING

After completion of training we take feedback from the participant about the trainers. After one
month we are taking feedback of the concerned participant about his improvement in his skill or
reschedule program.

After the individual feedback is received by the trainees, the PTR is prepared. Post Training Report.
The PTR is forwarded to the immediate superiors.


It is the duty of the superiors to prepare the DAP i.e. The Development Action Plan which mentions
how well the training has been achieved and the next course of action if a refresher is needed to the
trainees who have not performed as per the standards required.

The DAP is sent to the NIS Sparta trainers to do the needful and the trainers after doing the needful,
they follow up with the superiors.




                                                 46
Based on these we are preparing quarterly graphs for presentation to the top management. There we
highlight what is our target and what we have achieved.

In training and development activities we are conducting employee's satisfaction survey, where
general points about company like his improvement in his working, safety awareness in his
department, salary package, work environment of the company, and work culture of the company
etc. In this survey we conclude that where the management is lacking or any steps are required to
improve the satisfaction of our employees.




                                   Like this we are also taking employees awareness report from each
employee in which we cover certain point about his job awareness. Based on this report we also see
that is it necessary to improve our employee awareness level.

After completion of training we keep his training record in his personal file and also in soft copies.




                                   TRAINING EVALUATION

Evaluation means the assessment of value or worth. It simply means the act of judging whether or
not the activity has achieved the set target. In training field evaluation has been taken not only to
assessment of value but also collection and analysis of data.
Evaluation of training is the last but very important stage of any training program. Training
evaluation is very essential because of the following reasons:


       The organization giving training to there employee can come to know what returns they are
       getting for efforts and expenditure it has committed to the training and it can find out from it
       whether the training efforts are in correct direction or not.

       The training evaluation can justify the expenditure incurved in giving training and help the
       organization to determine to what extent, objectives have been achieved, whether the results
       are far away from the target or are nearby the target.

       Evaluation of training helps in assess the quality of training imparted and also suggests what
       changes in training plan should be made to make it more effective. Weakness within the
       established training program can be identified and accordingly training programs can be
       modified and improved properly. Less effective program can be withdrawn in order to save
       time, money and efforts.

           Reactions of the employees after training

           Learning abilities

           Behavioral changes

           And the results generated in performance

   The training imparted should affect the above mentioned points of the trainee.
   What was his reaction to the training, how much he has learned and are there any changes in the
   behavior and the results in his performance.

Soon after conducting the training program we conducted some immediate activities to collect the
feedbacks of the employee's undergone training and we really come across many useful facts and
figures.

My data is based on questionnaire prepared as well as the data available by the management.




Evaluation gives the correct image of development of the employee and its ability skills and the
                                      productivity, which was design to achieve.
After evaluating all the activities during the study stage conductivity training program

most of the employees find themselves equipped with the information received after training
                              program and feels a sense of development on their personal levels.

                                  RESEARCH METHODOLOGY


Definition : Research Methodology is a systematic way of investigation directed to the discovery of
some facts by careful study of a subject, a course of critical and scientific inquiry.

(A)       Scope

The scope/range of this project report is not too far stretching to the whole of Reliance
Communication, Pune rather it only covers the training and development activities conducted By
NIS – Sparta for its employees.

My project mainly deals with the present method of training given at Reliance Communication
during my tenure of the project, July – August 2008.


This project covers training, training programmed, and training evaluation and excludes all other
human resources activities conducted before and after training.




(B)       REQUIREMENT: -

          For our project we required information like knowledge about the employees
          understanding, skills generated and the mastery gained during training.

          So we have to look insight the performance of the employees through evaluation of their
          performance, through questionnaire and data given by the management

(C)       SOURCE OF INFORMATION:-
         Primary data: The data is collected for the first time hence is fresh and happens to be
          original in nature.
         Secondary data: The data is the collected and processed information by some other person
          or organization.

          Primary data were collected from employees already have gone by these method of training
          and the ability to perform accordingly and the already available data given by management.

          Secondary data are gathered from the official website of the company and from reference
          books .




                                                  49
(D)    RESEARCH TOOL:-

       For the data collection we used structured close-ended questionnaire as well as open ended
       questions.


(E)    METHOD USED FOR DATA COLLECTION:-

Questionnaire and data available with the management.

       Formulation Of Objective:-

                       After taken the project we formulate the objective.

Objective of the project:

             To study the effectiveness of the training imparted by NIS- Sparta and its resultant in
              the performance of the employees.
             To know the perception of the employees regarding training methods in Reliance
              Communication.
             To identify how training assists the employees to acquire skills,knowledge and attitude
              and also enhance the same.
             To study whether training helps to motivate employees and helps in avoiding mistakes.



             6. Sample Size:-

       Sample can be defined as the selection of a part or a group or an aggregate with a view in
       obtaining information about the whole population.
       For knowing the mind share of different brands we should target more population but because
       of lack of time we took sample of 25 people.

               (3) Design Of The Questionnaire:-
The questionnaire is the most common tool in collecting data, so it should be carefully developed,
tested and debugged before they    are administered on a large scale.

                      We arrange the data in the form of table.

(7) Analysis:-

                     After tabulation we analyze the data with the help of pie chart
              because in pie chart it was easy to understand every thing in
       percentage as well as it gives better picture.

(8) Conclusion:-

                      On the basis of finding there should be a short summary.

(9) Recommendation:-

                    Should write some suggestion, as given by analysis of the data by the
management and the questionnaire.




                                 Data Analysis and interpretation




                                                 51
Training program in business organizations are taking new shapes and dimensions, which one has to
consider while dealing with the activities of training and development in the field of human
resources.

Training is so crucial that there is no need to mention its significance to the organization and as well
as to the individual employees. Training begins right from the recruitment of an employee and
follows thought the life span of the job of each employee of that organization.

Training has bundles of numbers of actions to be performed in daily routine work and hence lot of
quality, efficiency depends upon the performance level of the employee.

Organization are very keen as far as training of employees are concerned and are always ready to
spend what it takes to train and develop the employees in best concerned with the favor of the
organization.

Here we come to know the willingness of the organization regarding the employees and the cost they
are bearing for that purpose. A good management always tries to cut down the unnecessary and
unwanted expenditure of money. Hence if this area of management is taken care of and a very well
planned and a highly systematic initiative can result in heavy saving, in other words earning a
healthy profit.

 Analysis and interpretation of trainee’s questionnaire:

                        Observation and findings.




                         Observation and findings


          Though by and large, substantial number of employees are content with the way the
           training is conducted, still there is a scope to analyze at micro level whether the
           negatives respondents were either non attentive confronted confused or otherwise.
           based up on the data there is a scope to take corrective action.

          The cooperation between the colleagues and the level of support they share with each
           other binds them in an attachment towards the company. However progressive
           feedback relating to change in the behavioral pattern and scope for redesigning
           subsequent training programs need to be examined & explored in proper perspective

          Regional behavior and language influence is higher during training and even after
           delivering their language; the desired effects are not seen.

          Some of the superiors do not bother to make Development Action Plans and submit to
           the trainers. The statc and superficial approach of the supervision needs to be dealt
           with appropriately


                                             59
           The training is mainly conducted all around India, the trainers have to travel but
            sometimes the logistics and arrangement is non-satisfactory. Rescheduling the
            programmed in advice and informing the participant with due lead time may alleviate
            the logistic problem the proximity, approachability and accessibility are the three
            majar parameter while considering the venue

           The findings from the data analysis from the questionnaire show a positive
            improvement, enhancing and overall rating about the training programmed.

           The reality learning and simulations were thoroughly enjoyed by the employees who
            have received it.




5. Suggestions

    In today‘s competitive world, attitude is the factor which is the dividing line between failure
     and success. Thus recruitment of the employees must be made not only on skills and attitude
     but also the attitude of the employee. If an employee has a positive attitude then training for
     him can be more effective, he has a positive effect on the climate.

    The raining records must be maintained, preserved properly and updated timely.

    Proper care should be taken while selecting the trainers.

    Nis Sparta trainers must be given continuous feedback and the training should be performed
     as a continuous planned activity.

    New and different trainers should be invited so that the maximum impact can be got from
     the training programmes.

    Co –ordination and interaction of the employees of all levels must be encouraged to locate
     new talents among employees.

    Solution to some of the problems faced by the employees, should be suggested by the
     employees themselves to make them feel valued at the organization.

    The DAP( Development Action Plans) must be prepared and given to the trainers as soon as
     possible for further follow up from the side of the trainers.




                                                60
6. Conclusion

Analysis of all the facts & figures, the observations and the experience during the training period
gives a very positive conclusion/ impression regarding the training imparted by the NIS – Sparta
trainers. The NIS – Sparta is performing its role up to the mark and the trainees enjoy the training
imparted especially the reality learning and simulation.

The training imparted meets the objectives like:
          Effectiveness of the training and its resultant in the performance of the employees.
          Assists the employees to acquire skills, knowledge and attitude and also enhance the
             same.
          Helps to motivate employees and helps in avoiding mistakes.

It becomes quite clear that there is no other alternative or short cut to the development of human
resources. If we have to meet the challenges of technology, social and economic we have to train the
HR irrespective to their category at which they work in the organization.

As it is recognized fact that we cannot survive in tomorrow business‘s world with yesterdays
method. And hence the continuous development of HR is prime need of todays organization.
