3.4 Divisions of the company
By the turn of the century a new organizational form had begun to emerge. As businesses expanded into new markets and new products, the functional form failed to be efficient for managing a diversification strategy. By the 1950’s nearly all of the diversified firms listed in the Fortune 500 organized using the Multi-Divisional form (MDF). The MDF structure organized businesses under a headquarters that functions as banker, strategist, and coordinator for multiple business units (sometime termed “strategic business units” or SBU’s). This form is often characterized as organizing by outputs (products).

4.0 Analysis and Findings
4.1 HRM practices followed by the company/ Specific HR sector like- Training and development:
Training and development is a vital and effective operation of an organization. It is people, not buildings that make a company successful.
Assets make things possible but people make things happen. And for making them efficient and hardworking company should provide training and development of their staffs and nestle do the same thing as all biggest and efficient companies do for their staffs and all over the human resource department, and employees play dual role in the company. First, as a factor of production. And second, it makes other factors operative and productive.
Five steps of training and development processes:
To make an efficient and well maintained management and training process a company can follow five steps which can be key success for the training process of the company, those cores five stages are:
Step-1 Need analysis: identifies the specific job performance skills needed, assessed the prospective trainees skills, and develops specific, measurable knowledge and performance objectives based on any deficiencies.
Step-2 Instructional design: this process is a process where we decide on, compile and produce the training programe content, including workbook, exercises, and activities.
Step-3: Validation step: these programes are represented in front of the small representative audience.
Step-4: Implementation: this step comprises of actually training the targeted employee group.
Step-5: Evaluation: management assesses the program’s success or failures
After all the assessment they found that if they provide some facilities they the staffs could be very efficient and those facilities are:
On-the job training: it’s a training which is operated at the sight of the company or training is carried out the working is running, it is really a effective process played by various well leading company and this system also played by the Nestle, but it is also a unavoidable risk because all new staffs can make a mistake or cause a loss to the company, therefore company plays that system when it’s right to do so. It is effective, when a major leveled employee do a mistake by mistakenly then, for making an improvement Nestle company plays that system.
Local training: these trainings are carried out within the country by reputed training institution from, Bangladesh slavery and labor training institute and consultant from foreign training institutes are invited to conduct training. These trainings are usually take place at a different venue other that the office.
In- house training: these trainings are basically held within the office premises and usually get conducted by the senior managers who are specialist in different field.
Training about the market survey: company plays a vital role in the market survey by sending their staff at market and operate a project by management to get the fluency and efficiency of the staffs.
Overseas training: company provides need based training to the employee through the usage of appropriate external training instate, which are very often conducted overseas. Most of the functional trainings are provided by foreign training.
Diversification training: it’s a process of training where staffs work at the different level and post of the management and identify the efficiency and effectiveness of their work ability.
Off-the job training: this process is also an effective training for internal staffs but it can be painful and fluctuate staff’s confidence and motivation, because it is quiet time consuming and costly which bared by company, but in may stages of the efficiency of a company or to make an efficient staff company may play this training. Where any temporary staff may work for the company with or without wages and this is actually not a job but binding for the staff to be full time staff, which is also depends on the performance of the staff.
Apprenticeship training: it is a process by which people become skilled worked through a combination of classroom instruction and on the job training . it is widely used to train individuals for many occupations. It traditionally involves having the learner apprentice study under the tutelage of a master craftsperson.
Computer based training: now a day all most all companies provide training to their staffs by computers and projectors, this system is so much effective and time saving device. By this, companies can express their plans, training, what to do and what is restricted by company and other authorities; it is a total pack of direct communication and training process.
Training and development some employees may have skills from their education or from previous jobs and therefore need little additional training. Others will need extensive training how much and kind of training is needed will depend on the type of job involved and the amount of training that has already been given through education and the coerces and the natural skills of the person employed. This section will be looking primarily at the type of training provided by organization to their employee. There are various type of training and those types are:
- Case study involving role play or discussion.
- Use of internal and external communication system.
- Interactive video where the trainee is required to respond- depending upon the response. The video will follow different sequence.
- Games and outdoor programs can teach a workforce to work in a team.
- Group reading
- Small group discussion
- Case study
The process of monitoring individual and group performance, and giving helpful feedback for improvement, is generally called performance appraisal. The purpose of appraisals are:
- Helping the employee to overcome any problems or obstacles to performance.
- Identifying where an employee’s potential for improved performance and greater challenge could be better fulfilled.
- Setting goals and priorities for further monitoring and development.
The process will look at the employee as an individual, but will also ask how the employee help the organization to achieve its objectives.
