Enhancing Employee Skills.
This document contains four symposium papers on enhancing employee skills. "The Effect of Study Skills Training Intervention on United States Air Force Aeromedical Apprentices" (John C. Griffith) demonstrates how study skills intervention resulted in a significant increase in the end-of-course scores of a sample of 90 randomly selected Air Force members enrolled in a 3-month allied health technical course. "Helping Employees Develop Computer Skills While at Work: An Exploratory Study" (Henriette M. Pranger) reports on a study of how employees develop computer skills at work and presents strategies for enhancing the learning of computer skills in classroom and daily work settings. "Defining Core Problems for On the Job Training: An Example in the Car Repair Trade" (Simone J. van Zolingen, Jan N. Streumer) presents an instrument for systematic description of core problems that was developed after interviews with 30 individuals in 3 occupations (service manager, diagnostic mechanic, and garage receptionist). In "How Can Firms Improve Sales Performance?" (Camille M. Busette), the results of focus group interviews are used to demonstrate that all firms, regardless of their industry or market share position, must overcome very similar problems when conducting training designed to improve sales performance.
