SHEENBIE MIANA PALADO INTRODUCTION It is the responsibility of the supervisors and managers to utilize available resources to train, qualify, and develop their employees. On-the-job (OJT) is one of the best training methods because it is planned, organized, and conducted at the employee‟s worksite. OJT will generally be the primary method use for broadening employee skills and increasing productivity. it is particularly appropriate for developing proficiency skills unique to an employee‟s job-especially jobs that are relatively easy to develop, learn and require locally-owned equipment and facilities.
To have a successful practicum program, supervisors need to assign a coach to each employee involved in OJT practicum. It is the responsibility of the coach to plan training carefully and conduct it effectively. The OJT Trainee must be able to cope much with the tasks given to him/her. The OJT coach must in turn observe the trainee as he/she is working on that given task.
