Title: Staff training and development in corporate strategic planning - a case study of A-Life Company
Authors: Acolatse, Benjamin Kweku
Issue Date: 28-Feb-1997
Series/Report no.: 2455;
Abstract: One of the problems of personnel confronting A-life Company Limited is that some of the workers travel overseas to seek greener pastures after working with the organisation and having benefited from staff development programmes. The organisation spends time and money with the aim to train and develop workers but at times experience the situation whereby workers leave the organisation in the middle or at the end of training. Some however, leave before being trained or at the initial stages of training. This unfortunate situation most often creates problems for the management of the company. Especially, the problem of getting the right persons to replace the lost ones At times, employees with some educational background prefer to further their education at a higher level to working for the company. The skilled and semi-skilled workers are eager to further their education or undergo further training to acquire more knowledge in their profession. Strategically, management has been able to develop other areas to be in line with the company’s expansion. However, it seems to have done very little to the development of the human resources in the organisation. The areas that have been developed include modem equipment, new technologies, vehicles, buildings and the like. However, it is very unfortunate that the human resources operating these equipment, new technologies, vehicles, buildings and other material resources have not been developed that much. Therefore, operations cannot be considerably improved.
