Developing a On The Job training program within an organization
Submitted by: Catherine


Introduction

On the job training, at times referred to as direct instruction, is
among the earliest types of training (Observational learning). OJT is a
one-on-one training situated at the job place, where an individual who
understands how to perform a task explains to another person how to do it. In
olden days, the type of job that individuals did was mostly unskilful or semi-skilled
job which did not entail specialized skills. On-the-job training presently is
still extensively in used. Indeed, it is perhaps the most accepted mode of
training since it requires simply an individual who understands how to perform
the job, and the means the individual uses to perform the duty. OJT may not be
the most efficient or the most effective process sometimes, however, OJT is the
simplest to organize and control. Since the OJT training is undertaken on the
job, it is quite practical. OJT is regularly low-cost as no particular tools
are required other than from what is usually applied on the job. (Gubman, 1998)


Wholesale industry

When consumers buy products, they generally purchase them from
retail establishments, for example supermarkets, department stores, gas
stations, or Internet sites. Thus wholesale and retail stores are very
important in the market chain. Wholesale trade companies are crucial to an
economy, as they make simpler flows of goods, information and payments through
acting as the intermediaries connecting the producer and the end customer.
Wholesalers may store up products which either manufacturers or retailers may
not store awaiting consumers to want them. In doing so, they fill up numerous
functions in the market. They offer consumers, businesses and establishments a
suitable close supply of products prepared by various diverse producers which
permits them to dedicate least time and resource to business deals. For the
manufacturers, the wholesalers offer a nationwide system of a controllable
figure of distributors of their products that permit their manufactured goods
to reach a big number of consumers. Besides, wholesalers assist manufacturers
through taking up several marketing duties including  creating new customer, technical support,
order processing and customer service, duties that manufacturers if not, would
have performed. (Letts, et al, 2004)

In addition to selling and transferring products to customers,
various wholesalers might offer customers additional services. These includes
financing of purchases, technical support, customer service and product
marketing service for example advertising and 
technical support or logistical information, and fitting and repairs
services. After customers purchase equipment, for instance cash registers,
computers, copiers or different kinds of industrial machines, they could
require support to put together the machines into the consumer
