Description

Staff development is one of the pillars of organisational advancement. A welltrained employee has the capacity to increase the organisational output and improve his/her individual social capacity. The conventional method of staff development trains each tier of decision-makers for their particular skill needs. The problem with this model is that capital gain and financial results might be the only mutual outcome of these training. The proposed model sees the staff as individuals who might have similar needs and interests towards certain philosophical and cultural views holding the organisation together. The model, already in practice in one of the Pacific Island countries, shows how one might find a common interest in the organisation and how the staff might be trained within the parameter of this undertaking.
