Corporate Culture:
The systematic acquisition and development of the knowledge, skills and attitudes required by employees to adequately perform a task or a job or to improve performance in the job environment. (Moore, 2007)
Introduction: What's Wrong?
Difficulties in training due to lack of corporate culture.
The patterns of beliefs, values, and learned ways of coping with experience that have developed during the course of an organization's history and which tend to be manifested in its material arrangements and in the behavior of its members (Brown, 1998)
The results of failure in training are most apparent in customer interaction in the hospitality industry

Failure in training therefore has a particular impact on guests because the culture is strongly related to service standards and hospitality values
E.g. Ritz Carlton
Management and HR do not understand the sequence of events that must happen before training can be implemented correctly, which is:
1. Defining a (corporate) Culture
2. Creating a Structure
3. Go through a Needs Assessment
4. Then implement a Training
Who does it affect?
if you think about it...
Why this happens and the root causes:
#1: Lack of training and leadership skills found in leaders

#2: Inability to hone the skills of subordinates

#3: Failure/Unwillingness to understand the culture of employees

#4: Cost
Implications on HRM management
Having a configurational perspective

Implement and invest in a training program that is contingent with other HR practices
Possible Solutions?:
#1 Standardized training

well trained managers communicate better with their employees
everyone is on the same page
difficult to create a standardized training program
individualistic values
#2 Performance Standards
Gives a strong credibility to the training currently implemented.
Manager's resistance against having an assessment done
Lack of trust
Lack of empowerment
by showing fear means there's something to hide, which can possibly expose the underlying problems in training programs
#3 Creating a relationship between employees and corporate culture through motivation.
lower turnover rate
happier employees
every individual is different so motivation techniques may vary too much to be effective

A. Lack of training and lack of leadership skills found in leaders
B. Failure to make an attractive job pool
C. Inability to hone the skills of subordinates
D. Failure/Unwillingness to understand the culture of employees
Best Solution: #2 Performance Standards
How it should be implemented: A bi-yearly assessment
