What benefits the employees obtain?

  • The staff members are participating in activities during the learning process.
  • The work experiences and knowledge that staff members bring to each learning situation are used as a useful resource.
  • The learning opportunity promotes positive staff members’ self-esteem
  • The learning environment is fun, safe and supportive.

The staff members have the opportunity to engage with the cutting edge technologies in Beyond Translation.


Who is responsible for employee training and development?

Staff members training is the responsibility of Beyond Translation. Staff members’ development is a shared responsibility of Beyond Translation management and the individual staff member. The responsibility of Beyond Translation management is to provide the essential resources and a vibrant learning environment that supports the growth and development needs of the individual staff member.

For staff members training and development to be successful, Beyond Translation would:

  • Provide a well-designed job description – it is the foundation upon which employee training and development activities are built
  • Provide training required by staff members to meet the basic competencies for the job. This is usually the supervisor’s responsibility.
  • Develop a good understanding of the knowledge, skills and abilities that the organization will need in the future.
  • Look for learning opportunities in every-day activity.
  • Explain the staff members development process and encourage each of them to develop individual development plans

Assist staff members when they identify learning activities that make them an asset to Beyond Translation both now and in the future

How we provide learning opportunities?

Beyond Translation provides staff members with learning opportunities, including:

On-the-job experience


Committees made up of staff members from different departments of Beyond Translation will enhance learning by allowing staff members to see issues from different perspectives.

Conferences and forums

Staff members can attend conferences that focus on topics of relevance to their position.

Field trips

Field trips to client’s meeting serving a similar clientele or with similar positions can also provide a valuable learning experience.

Job expanding

Once our staff member has mastered the requirements of his or her job and is performing satisfactorily, s/he may want greater challenges. Beyond Translation will consider assigning new additional duties to the staff members.

Job rotation

On a temporary basis, staff members can be given the opportunity to work in a different area of the company.

Job shadowing

If a staff member wants to learn what someone else in Beyond Translation does, s/he can follow that person and observe him or her at work.

Peer-assisted learning

Two staff members can agree to help each other learn different tasks. Both staff members should have an area of expertise that the co-worker can benefit from them.

'Stretch' assignments

These assignments give the staff member an opportunity to stretch past his or her current abilities. For example, a stretch assignment could require an staff member to chair a meeting if the person has never done this before.

Special projects

Give a staff member an opportunity to work on a project that is normally outside his or her job duties.

Relationships and feedback


The role of the coach is to demonstrate skills and to give the staff member guidance, feedback, and reassurance while s/he practices the new skill.


A senior, experienced manager provides guidance and advice to a junior employee.



Some professional specialties have informal networks designed to meet the professional development need of the staff members.

Performance appraisal

In a 360-degree performance appraisal, feedback is gathered from supervisors, peers, staff, other colleagues and sometimes clients. The results of an appraisal can be used to identify areas for further development of the staff member.

Courses, seminars, workshops

A trainer, facilitator and/or subject matter expert provides the training session or a staff member can be sent to one of these learning opportunities during office time.

Professional associations

Professional associations, like networks, provide staff members an opportunity to stay current in their chosen field
