On-the-job Training

Want to know how to provide effective job training for employees? The best job training happens at work. If you're committed to employee development then on-the-job training may provide your best answer.

Employees appreciate the chance to develop knowledge and skills without ever leaving work. And, you can customize the on-the-job training employees receive to your workplace needs, norms, and culture.

Internal job training and employee development bring a special plus. Unlike external job training, examples, terminology, and opportunities can reflect the culture, environment, and needs of your workplace.

Progressive Solutionz can provide workshops to train your staff.

Training Within Industries

"Training Within Industries" is as useful today is it was when it was first used. Developed in the early 1940's, the United States government formed the Bureau of Training War Manpower Commission to help industry to quickly and reliably re-train workers to ramp up for World War II.

Training Within Industries has three main areas
JI - Job instruction
JM - Job Methods
JR - Job Relationships

The Job Methods teachings served as one of the foundations upon which Toyota eventually built the kaizen teachings that have now grown into the legendary Toyota Production System.
