Time Management Training
Time management is an important part of a person’s official work. The success of an employee is dependent upon the time management. If an employee can manage its time, then it means that they are efficient in working and have skills to perform a lot better in future. Samsung wants its employees to perform better under especially under critical situations and complete the work within the given time to avail the opportunities of the market. Samsung provides its employees with time management training programs in which workshops are conducted to train the employees. Proper training of time management is given so that the employees can work in an effective and efficient manner. By conducting such workshops, the employees can deal with issues like procrastination and interruptions (Fu, Yi, & Zhai, 2013).
After the training, the employees are highly motivated and are more determined to work as they are able to provide efficient results. Employees at the end of workshop even get a certificate that can be added to their resume. The workshop helps the employees to work better according to the conditions that increase their performance. It is also observed that the employees who are a part of the time management training programs are less stressful while working which allows them to perform better. Better performance and certification helps the organization to retain its employees, and this practice is also observed by Samsung (Fu, Yi, & Zhai, 2013).
