(Belinda, 32) Some may even loose interest once faced with too much pressure at work thus simply decide to change their career concentrations to less stressing ones compared to that of the IT operations that they are involved with at present. Hence, in this section of the study, understanding how to effectively motivate the said professionals of Vietnam through an effective management approach and efficient training procedures shall be well discussed.
Because employees need to learn how to work with new equipment-such as word processors, computers or possible, robots, companies are finding that they must offer proper planning programs that are often sophisticated enough to support the skills enhancement needs of the employees. Training and development include all attempts to improve productivity and competencies of the employees. ...
Some common training and development activities are employee orientation, on-the-job training, job simulation and management training. (Hubert, 2006, 437)
(a) Employee training is the activity that initiates new employees to the organization; to fellow employees; to their immediate supervisors and to the policies, practices, and objective of the firm. Orientation programs include everything from informal talks to formal activities that lasts for a day or two, and include visits to different departments of the organization and the handling of required readings and handbooks for organizational familiarity.

Part history lesson and part on-the-road orientation, the training covers everything that the employees must learn about the organization even before they begin to operate with the entire staff.
(b) On-the-job-training is the most fundamental type of training for employees in different types of industries. The employee being trained on the job immediately begins his or her tasks and learns by doing so, or watches others for a while and then imitates them right at the workplace. It could be observed though that more sophisticated jobs such as that of the IT positions would require much intense procedures of training than simply making an imitative approach to the process. Intranets and other forms of new technology are leading to cost-effective on-the-job training programs available 24 hours a day, all year long. Computer systems can monitor workers' input and give them
