THE TRAINING CENTER, DIFFERENT PURPOSES, DIFFERENT DESIGNS, A LOOK AT SELECTED CORPORATE TRAINING CENTERS.
MAHLER, HARRY B.
UNIQUE FEATURES AND FLOOR PLANS OF FUNCTIONALLY DESIGNED CORPORATE TRAINING CENTERS ARE DESICRIBED. THE TRAVELERS EDUCATION CENTER HAS SIMPLY DESIGNED ROOMS AND FEW AUDIOVISUAL AIDS (AV). BUTLER MANUFACTURING HAS ITS STUDY CENTER IN A WING OF A MOTEL WHICH IS CONVENIENT TO THE GENERAL OFFICES AND DOWNTOWN AREA. SINCE COMPANY PERSONNEL USE THE CENTER ONLY THROUGH THE WINTER MONTHS, IT IS RENTED TO OTHER COMPANIES TO HELP PAY FOR MAINTENANCE AND OPERATION. THE J.C. PENNEY COMPANY USES VARIOUS AV EQUIPMENT SUCH AS CLOSED CIRCUIT TELEVISION, A MULTIPROJECTOR AND FULL SOUND SYSTEM FOR EXECUTIVE ORIENTATION AND TRAINING, GENERAL MEETINGS, AND DISPLAYS OF PURCHASED MERCHANDISE. A NATIONAL TELEPHONE DIAL PARALLEL ACCESS AUDIOMACHINE PLAYS TAPED TRAINING AND PROMOTION PROGRAMS FOR PENNEY EMPLOYEES CALLING FROM ANY PART OF THE COUNTRY. THE KODAK MARKETING EDUCATION CENTER HAS COMPLETE LEARNING FACILITIES AND SUCH SPECIAL FEATURES AS SEMINAR ROOMS WITH REVOLVING STAGES, A LARGE LABORATORY WORKSHOP AREA, AND A GRAPHIC ARTS-PHOTO AREA. THE BELL SYSTEM BUSINESS COMMUNICATION CENTER HAS EACH PIECE OF DEMONSTRATION EQUIPMENT MOUNTED ON DRAWERS WHICH RECEDE INTO A SCREEN WALL WHEN NOT IN USE.
