Programs and Initiatives
OJT programs can take several forms. For some trainers, “on-the-job-training” means a total lack of a formal training program. The term unstructured OJT often refers to a trial-by-fire method of job training where people are forced to learn a job on their own, receiving guidance only when they make a mistake. For others, OJT is a training method where experienced employees take new employees under their wing, instructing and coaching them on how to perform their job, giving them the benefit of years of experience.
