    35. 35. CASE STUDY? ON 35
    36. 36. Introduction  Aldi is a leading retailer with over 8,000 stores worldwide. It continues to expand in Europe, North America and Australia.  Aldi brand is associated with value for money.  Aldi’s slogan is ‘spend a little, live a lot’.  The company buys large quantities of products from carefully selected suppliers.  Aldi keeps costs down in different ways. It ensures its operations are as efficient as possible, for example, store layouts are kept simple and opening hours focus on the busiest times of the day.  Aldi places great importance on how it trains and developed its employees. 36
    37. 37. Identifying training needs  Aldi identifies future training needs through an ongoing analysis of company performance in key areas at all levels. For example, the company monitors the availability of its products to the customer within its stores. If the level of availability drops below the targeted level then a programme of training on order accuracy would be undertaken. It also considers future developments within the business and within the grocery retail sector in order to predict both the total numbers of staff it will need and, more crucially, the skills and competencies that will be required. 37
    38. 38. On the job training On-the-job training is training that takes place while employees are actually working.  It means that skills can be gained while trainees are carrying out their jobs. Employees learn in the real work environment and gain experience dealing with the tasks and challenges that they will meet during a normal working day. 38
    39. 39. Methods:  There are several methods of providing on-the-job training. Four frequently used methods are briefly described here: 1: Coaching – an experienced member of staff will help trainees learn skills and processes through providing instructions or demonstrations (or both). 2: Mentoring – each trainee is allocated to an established member of staff who acts as a guide and helper. A mentor usually offers more personal support than a coach. 3:Job rotation – this is where members of staff rotate roles or tasks so that they gain experience of a full range of jobs. 39
    40. 40. 4: ‘Sitting next to Nellie’ – this describes the process of working alongside a colleague to observe and learn the skills needed for a particular process. This can be a faster and more useful way of learning a job role than studying a written manual. The colleague is always on hand to answer any questions or deal with any unexpected problems.  For most on-the-job training at Aldi stores, the store manager acts as the trainer. A typical format is for the manager to explain process to the trainee, then to demonstrate it. The trainee then carries out the process, while the manager observes.  All positions from apprentices through to trainee area managers follow this type of structured ‘tell, show, do’ training.  Trainee area managers also undergo job rotation. They have the opportunity to experience all aspects of the business to give them a complete overview of how Aldi operates. 40
    41. 41. Off the job training  As the name suggests, off-the-job training is provided away from the immediate workplace. This might be at a specialist training centre or at a college or at a company’s own premises.  Typical off-the-job training courses offered to employees by Aldi include:  recruitment, interviewing and selection  employment law  influencing skills  performance reviews (appraisals)  Aldi Management System (how to develop and performance manage people). 41
    42. 42.   Off-the-job training may involve extra costs, such as payments to training organizations. It also means that staff taking training courses are not at work, so their jobs have to be covered by others. This can lead to an increase in payroll costs. However, balanced against these costs are the gains that Aldi makes from offthe-job training. These include the benefits of having more motivated staff, greater staff productivity and employees with better skills and the ability to provide improved customer service. Aldi provides training opportunities for young people. The Aldi apprentice scheme combines on-the-job and off-the-job training. Apprenticeships are open to 16-18 year olds. Apprentices training as store assistants also study for an NVQ in Retail Apprenticeship. They complete store assistant training and gain an NVQ Level 2 in their first year. They then take a store management training programme over two years and work for a Level 3 advanced qualification 42
    43. 43. Development  Development focuses as much on personal growth as skills that are directly related to the job. A development programme is designed to make individuals more skilled, more flexible in their approach and better qualified for their chosen careers.  Through a development programme, employees can obtain transferable qualifications that benefit the individuals concerned as well as the business. This can have disadvantages for the business, as it gives workers greater value in the job market. However, Aldi is willing to take this risk as it believes in providing what is best for its staff. 43
    44. 44.  The Aldi retail placement scheme takes university students on a one-year placement. This allows the chosen individuals to show what they can offer the business and to find out what the business can offer them. Aldi offers an excellent reward package for students on a placement, but in return expects trainees to have enthusiasm, drive and ambition. Successful students get the opportunity to apply for a place on Aldi’s Area Management training programme. 44
    45. 45. CONCLUSION  Aldii wants efficient operations, with its stores staffed by people who are keen and competent.  Aldi’s success is shown by the fact that it is expanding rapidly. It is opening new stores and experiencing sales growth that requires it to take on more staff. This means that it needs to combine good recruitment policies with robust selection processes.  Aldi puts great emphasis on developing its people. Over 85% of Aldi directors have been recruited from within the company.This commitment to training and development makes Aldi a business of choice for both ambitious teenagers and top graduates. This is shown by its placing in the Top 5 in The TimesTop 100 Graduate Employers and the Graduate Employer of Choice for 2012 45 for General Management
