DEPARTMENT SKILLS TRAINING

Bài gửi  Admin on Sat Oct 20, 2012 12:52 pm

Guidelines
• All new employees, whatever their previous experience, will need to be trained in their new job. In some cases, this training will need to start with the very basics of the job description; in other situations, it may mean only a slight adjustment between the way the employee did a particular task in his/her previous job and how it is done at the Princess D’Annam.
• The on-the-job training is ultimately the responsibility of the Department Head, who should use his/her weekly meeting with the Team Leaders to ensure that the departmental skills trainer is carrying out the training effectively.
• Each outlet and section of the operation should have at least one trained skills trainer. The trainer may be a Team Leader, or a member of staff, whom the Department Head is preparing for promotion.
Recommendations
1. The Role of the Department Trainer
1.1 To improve the weaknesses (skills, knowledge and competencies) of existing staff.
1.2 To train new staff (including trainees) as soon as they have finished the General Orientation and Culture Orientation.
1.3 To train hotel staff on cross-exposure from other departments.
1.4 To train the staff to use a new product or carry out a new system.
1.5 To train staff in the skills and knowledge needed according to their career development plan.
1.6 To use the departmental training to reinforce and develop the core values and behaviours, which are essential to the development of a vibrant hotel team culture. The core values are: love ( warmth, care), passion, teamwork, integrity, empathy, creativity..

2. How to make a monthly training plan
2.1 The Department Trainer will consult with his/her Department Head and Team Leader about each member of staff’s weaknesses in job skills, knowledge, competencies, and core values, and also career development training needs, and decide which of these should be focused on in the following month’s training plan.

2.1.1 Full-time staff
Which skills, knowledge and competencies do the staff need to improve? Decide on your priorities. Ask yourself:
• Who should I train (first, second, etc.)?
• What skills, knowledge and competencies should I train (first, second, etc.)?
• What are the next training needs in the person’s career development plan?

2.1.2 New staff
• Are there any new staff who need to be trained?
• Use the skills training plan in the Service Training Manual to guide you about
what to train, and how to train it.

2.1.3 New trainees
• Are there any new trainees, who need to be trained, or who will be starting work during the month?
• Use the skills training plan in the Service Training Manual to guide you about
what to train, and how to train it.
2.1.4 Cross-exposure staff
• Are there any hotel staff on cross-exposure training in your section?
• Use the skills training plan in the Service Training Manual to guide you about
what to train, and how to train it.

2.1.5 Staff already following a training plan
• How much have they learned?
• What needs to be revised or retrained?
• What new tasks need to be trained next?

2.2 How much time are you able to spend training this month?
2.2.1 Make a monthly timetable according to the number of hours you can spend. For example: 1 hour every day, 3 hours per week, etc.

2.2.2 Give first priority to: a) the weaknesses, which are causing guest complaints;
b) new employees, who have just joined the hotel.
However, do not use this as an excuse to ignore the other training needs.

2.3 Fill in a Department Trainer's Monthly Training Form
2.3.1 The plan should be written, discussed with the trainer’s Department Head and Section Head, and handed in to the Human Resources Department by the Department Trainer 3 working days before the start of the month in which the training will take place. This is so that the Training Manager can arrange to attend a training session and provide any necessary coaching.
2.3.2 Fill in the name of your department and your own name on the form.
2.3.3 Decide Whom? What? When? Where? How? What materials?, and write down the details on the training plan.

the details of the training sessions, the place and time.
