This paper aims to describe how structured on‐the‐job training (S‐OJT) was implemented to develop new‐hire engineers at the Kuwait National Petroleum Company.
The paper describes a case study on the development, implementation, and evaluation results of an extensive case study in an organization.
The results show a reduction in development time and increased confidence in the skills of the new‐hire engineers, among other outcomes reported.
The case study can assist other advanced training and human resource development practitioners to develop high‐skilled technical employees who may require different approaches to ensure a depth of conceptual and job‐related information.
The intent of the case study is to assist other advanced training and human resource development practitioners in developing high‐skilled technical employees.
