Human Resource Development Training
Popularity of classroom training in HRD
Classroom training techniques are common in modern day organizations due to various
reasons. First, the employees get the opportunity to train in a safe, clean, and quiet environment
free from the workplace pressures. It is also a convenient strategy as the training groups can be
small or large. A classroom environment provides a unique personal touch which may facilitate
interaction and team work in tasks assigned at workplaces (Hodge, 2013). It enhances learning
among the trainees and the professional trainer. The employees will also get a chance to seek
clarification for areas not well understood hence promoting efficiency.
Other forms of training do not provide a platform for employees to relate with each other
in a productive and professional manner. Classroom training will foster the adoption of the
organizational culture and code of ethics. The trainer will require a program that is simple for
employees to deliver such that there is minimal interruption form the normal working schedule.
It ensures that the company sales volume is not adversely affected and that the program operates
at a reasonable cost to protect capital reserves.
Technology-based training program will not require the manager or stakeholders to
conduct it in a classroom setting. The program is employee-pace set such that it’s flexible for all
trainees as they vary in capability. Use of digital and web-based eLearning is the most common
programs that organizations use to equip employees with new skills and competence
(HedayatiMehdiabadi, & Li, 2016). The trainee will have all the information online and limited
interaction with the trainer. On-the-job training program on the other hand involves learning
through manual reading, observation and use of intranet for interactive sessions and inquiries.
