Organisations run on long-term basis also termed as external basis adopting with changing conditions. Hence, they need human resources. The process of human resources management (HRM) starts with planning, for how many and what kind of people will be needed at different points of time in the organisation. Therefore, once employees have been recruited and selected, the next step involved in the HRM process is to transform them to meet the future requirement of the organisation. Such transformation of employees is done by means of training and development. Based on skill requirements for job performance, employees required in an organisation are broadly classified into two categories, viz., operating and supervisory / managerial. Operatives perform routine and repetitive type of jobs. We shall discuss issues involved in training at operative level. In earlier practice, training programmes focused more on preparation for improved performance in a particular job. Most of the trainees used to be from operative levels like mechanics, machine operators, and other kind of skilled workers.
