One of the major impacts on production is the human sector. It has been recognized as a principle instrument in the fulfillment of the targets of the plan and in the achievement of the economic progress generally. Hence it is more the welfare of the employees and to prevent the main problems. An organization whether small or large, be it a business or an industrial enterprise, needs for its growth, survival and continuance four improvement M’s * MONEY * MATERIAL * MACHINERY and * MEN Primarily, success or failure of an organization mainly depends upon combination of the above four factors.
Of which, I feel, managing men is critical and challenging task because of the dynamic nature of the people. No two persons are similar in their mental abilities, traditions, sentiments and behavior and are subject to many and varied influences, people are responsive, they feel, think and act and therefore they just cannot be operated like a machine or shifted and altered like a template in a room layout. Human beings differ from one another in basic metal abilities, personality, interest, skills, attitudes, aspirations, energy, education, training, experience and behavior.
Because of these varied traits human beings are complex in their behavior and in their psychological make-up and when they interact with one another in a group or an organization, this complexity is multiplied. Because of these diversified factors, human beings have to be handled with great care and art of handling men was traditionally called as “personal management” but it is called as “human relations or human engineering. ” Knowledge of people, their usage’s and behavior is the first step in developing the human relations.
NEED FOR THE STUDY * To gain optimum utilization of human resource by measuring their training and development. * As the ultimate desire of every employee is for their hike (wages and salary). * To know the training and development and wages and salary administration of employees in the APCPDCL. * In human resource management employee is to be treated as an assent of the organization. Along with the training and development of the employee by the organization affects the moral of the employee and productivity of the organization.
In such situation the expectation of the employee, which are described in job Description should not be ignored. OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY The objectives of the study are: * To study and analysis the philosophy of employee training and development of APCPCL * To study the process of wage and salary administration that was followed by APCPDCL * To understand various strategies APCPDCL with fulfilling with fulfilling the need of Training and development need of the employees. * To compare the standards of APCPDCL with international standards. To study & analysis the philosophy of employee training and development of APCPDCL SAMPLING AND METHODOLOGY: A Survey of 100 respondents out of 514 employees at Corporate Office in produced by APCPDCL. By the way of random method was conducted. Data collection: After identifying the research objectives the next step is to identify the methodology for data collection.

TRAINING METHODS/TECHNIQUES On the job method
This type of training is also known as job instruction training in the individual is placed on a regular job and taught, the skills necessary to perform that job on the job training has a advantage of giving first hand knowledge and experience under the actual working conditions. (a) Job Rotation:- This type of training involves the movements of the trainee from one job to another.

These, units are arranged from single to more complex levels of instructions. The trainee goes through these units by answering questions or filling in the blanks. This method is expensive and time consuming. MODELS OF TRAINING The system model consists of five phases and should be repeated on a regular basis to make further improvements. The training should achieve the purpose of helping employee to perform their work to required standards.
The steps involved in System Model of training are as follows: 1. Analyze and identify the training needs i. e. to analyze the department, job, employees requirement, who needs training, what do they need to learn, estimating training cost, etc The next step is to develop a performance measure on the basis of which actual performance would be evaluated. 2. Design and provide training to meet identified needs. This step requires developing objectives of training, identifying the learning steps, sequencing and structuring the contents. | | Evaluating 3.
Develop- This phase requires listing the activities in the training program that will assist the participants to learn, selecting delivery method, examining the training material, validating information to be imparted to make sure it accomplishes all the goals ; objectives. 4. Implementing is the hardest part of the system because one wrong step can lead to the failure of whole training program. 5 each phase so as to make sure it has achieved its aim in terms of subsequent work performance. Making necessary amendments to any of the previous stage in order to remedy or improve failure practices. TRANSITIONAL MODEL Transitional model focuses on the organization as a whole. The outer loop describes the vision, mission and values of the organization on the basis of which trainingmodei. e. innerloopisexecuted. Vision – focuses on the milestones that the organization would like to achieve after the defined point of time. A vision statement tells that where the organization sees itself few years down the line. A vision may include setting a role mode, or bringing some internal transformation, or may be promising to meet some other deadlines.
Mission – explain the reason of organizational existence. It identifies the position in the community. The reason of developing a mission statement is to motivate, inspire, and inform | | the employees regarding the organization. The mission statement tells about the identity that how the organization would like to be viewed by the customers, employees, and all other stakeholders. Values – is the translation of vision and mission into communicable ideals. It reflects the deeply held values of the organization and is independent of current industry environment.
For example, values may include social responsibility, excellent customer service, etc. | | | The mission, vision, and values precede the objective in the inner loop. This model considers the organization as a whole. The objective is formulated keeping these three things in mind and then the training model is further implemented. | | INSTRUCTIONAL SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT MODEL (ISD) MODEL Instructional System Development model was made to answer the training problems. This model is widely used now-a-days in the organization because it is concerned with the training need on the job performance.
Training objectives are defined on the basis of job responsibilities and job description and on the basis of the defined objectives individual progress is measured. This model also helps in determining and developing the favorable strategies, sequencing the content, and delivering media for the types of training objectives to be achieved. The Instructional System Development model comprises of five stages: 1. ANALYSIS – This phase consist of training need assessment, job analysis, and target audience analysis. | | 2.
PLANNING – This phase consist of setting goal of the learning outcome, instructional objectives that measures behavior of a participant after the training, types of training material, media selection, methods of evaluating the trainee, trainer and the training program, strategies to impart knowledge i. e. selection of content, sequencing of content, etc. | | | 3. DEVELOPMENT – This phase translates design decisions into training material.

EXECUTION – This phase focuses on logistical arrangements, such as arranging speakers, equipments, benches, podium, food facilities, cooling, lighting, parking, and othertrainingaccessories. 5. EVALUATION – The purpose of this phase is to make sure that the training program has achieved its aim in terms of subsequent work performance. This phase consists of identifying strengths and weaknesses and making necessary amendments to any of the previous stage in order to remedy or improve failure practices. The ISD model is a continuous process that lasts throughout the training program.

Importance of Training Objectives Training objective is one of the most important parts of training program. While some people think of training objective as a waste of valuable time. The counterargument here is that resources are always limited and the training objectives actually lead the design of training.
It provides the clear guidelines and develops the training program in less time because objectives focus specifically on needs. It helps in adhering to a plan. Training objectives tell the trainee that what is expected out of him at the end of the training program. Training objectives are of great significance from a number of stakeholder perspectives, 1. Trainer 2. Trainee 3. Designer 4. Evaluator | | Trainer – The training objective is also beneficial to trainer because it helps the trainer to measure the progress of trainees and make the required adjustments.
Also, trainer comes in a position to establish a relationship between objectives and particular segments of training. | | | Trainee – The training objective is beneficial to the trainee because it helps in reducing the anxiety of the trainee up to some extent. Not knowing anything or going to a place which is unknown creates anxiety that can negatively affect learning. Therefore, it is important to keep the participants aware of the happenings, rather than keeping it surprise. Secondly, it helps in increase in concentration, which is the crucial factor to make the training successful.
The objectives create an image of the training program in trainee’s mind that actually helps in gaining attention. Thirdly, if the goal is set to be challenging and motivating, then the likelihood of achieving those goals is much higher than the situation in which no goal is set. Therefore, training objectives helps in increasing the probability that the participants will be successful in training. Designer – The training objective is beneficial to the training designer because if the designer is aware what is to be achieved in the end then he’ll buy the training package according to that only.
The training designer would then look for the training methods, training equipments, and training content accordingly to achieve those objectives. Furthermore, planning always helps in dealing effectively in an unexpected situation. Consider an example; the objective of one training program is to deal effectively with customers to increase the sales. Since the objective is known, the designer will design a training program that will include ways to improve the interpersonal skills, such as verbal and non verbal language, dealing in unexpected situation i. e. when there is a defect in a product or when a customer is angry.
Therefore, without any guidance, the training may not be designed appropriately. Evaluator – It becomes easy for the training evaluator to measure the progress of the trainees because the objectives define the expected performance of trainees. Training objective is an important to tool to judge the performance of participants. | | DEVELOPMENT In day’s competitive environment, an organization has to be concerned about the development.

Often techniques are used in the combination in long-term development programme. Some of these techniques are: * Coaching and counseling * Job rotation * Conference / discussion * Programmed and computer aid instruction * Role-playing Team group training Coaching and counseling: This is one of the most popular management development techniques where effective senior manager teach the new managers. The coach superior sets a good example of what a manager does while doing about daily business. The new manager exemplifies the correct behavior attitudes, assigned specific and challenging goals and provides trainees with frequent and immediate feedback concerning their job performance. The coach also delegates enough authority to the trainees to make some decision. This approach not only provides opportunities to learn but also allows a feeling of self-confidence to develop.
Job Rotation:- Management –trainers and educationalist, has often preached ‘move the manager around’ when the manager is moved from one department to another, it gives him from a broad exposure to the strength and weakness of the company and much better understanding then he could otherwise possess. Guided conference / Discussion:- The guided discussions type of conference in an improvement over straight lecturing, the instructor known in advance what information or procedure he wants to bring our, and guides the discussion accordingly. Programme and computer aid instructions:-
Programmed instructions are based on certain behavioral laws that relate to principles of reinforcement. The important feature of programmed instruction is that it Provides immediate feedback on whether the participants answered correctly or not. To facilitates this, the instructors are designed in such a way that all future learning. Programmed instructions can have been developed in computer aided format. In such a format, managers sit at a computer terminal with a monitor. The computer is programmed with the training materials. The potential for computer based training is virtually unlimited.
It is generally agreed that because of such advantage as self-pacing, privacy, immediate feed back convenience and adoptability it will became one of the most popular training and development approaches available. Role-Playing:- In which roles as assigned to trainees to act out as they would do in their real life. It is helpful in training managers to deal with human relation management. Participants learn to appreciate others point of view. They experience a situation emotionally. It makes them more self-conscious and analytical in their behavior.
