INTRODUCTIONTesco is a leading retailer in UK into terms of revenue and size. In order to understandvarious issues of human resource development this report is prepared. In the report, variouslearning styles are described. Along with this their contribution to drafting of training anddevelopment program is also described in detail. In middle part of report training program isdesigned. Moreover, techniques that can be used to evaluate a training program are alsodiscussed in detail. Governments are also playing a very important role in improving skills of theyoungsters. In regard to this detail discussion is carried out in the report. At the end of the report,steps taken by the UK government in respect to this are discussed in detail.TASK 11.1 Comparison of different learning stylesLearning style refers to the way in which an individual learns from the various eventsoccurred in his or her life. Some of the common learning styles are as follows.Activist-It is a learning style in which an individual learns by performing tasks oractivities. In this case, an individual performs some new things and he or she does nothave any experience of that task. During the performance of task, that individual faces lotof challenges and he or she tries to find out ways to handle challenges and achieveobjectives. During this entire process, individual learns lot of things.Reflector-In this learning style, an individual gains experience before performing anykind of task. Such kind of individual believes that some information is necessary to becollected regarding the performance before conducting that task (Hurn, 2011). By doingthis, new task can be performed in an efficient and effective manner. Tesco canimplement this learning style by introducing seminars, learning activities andpresentations at its workplace.Theorists-In this kind of learning style, an individual learns by analyzing a situation. Inan organization, situations are too complex and by evaluating entire situation learnerarrives at particular conclusion. He or she uses that conclusion for formulating strategiesthat can be used to deal with complex situation (Pennanen, Whelton and Ballard, 2005).Pragmatist-In this learning style a person learns by solving specific issues. Managersface new issues in day to day business operations and they need to solve these issues as
soon as possible. In order to solve these issues, manager considers several factors andcorrelates all those factors with each other. By doing this, an individual learns many newthings.All the learning styles are effective at workplace. Tesco as per its needs must determine alearning style in which individuals must learn new things in an organization. In this regard, it canuse various methods like seminars and group discussion in order to implement specific learningstyle at the workplace.1.2 Importance of learning curve and importance of transferring learning to workplaceLearning curve is a curve that shows that if any task is performed repeatedly then timetaken by an employee to perform that task can be increased or decreased. If activity is performedagain and again by an employee, so he or she becomes perfect in performing that task. Hence, heor she takes less time to complete that task. If, time taken by employee to perform task is notreduced after conducting that task at so many times, then it can be said that employee does notgain any experience from the activity that he is performing again and again from so many days.By using learning curve, such kind of employee can be identified that are not gaining requiredexperience from the repeat performance of task (Ryan, Spencer and Bernhard, 2012).Management of Tesco needs to carry out a session in which reasons due to which an employee isnot able to learn will be identified. On this basis, changes can be made in the training program.By doing this, training program can be made effective. Hence, in this way learning curve as atechnique plays an important role in refining the training program of Tesco. There is a greatimportance of transferring learning to the workplace. An individual while working at theworkplace faces many situations and he or she learns a lot from these scenarios. In order to dealwith such situations in future, he or she formulates different types of tactics through dealing suchsituations in the present (Storey, 2014). If learning is transferred properly at workplace then he orshe will easily solve complex issues in their job. Thus, there is a huge importance of transferringlearning to the workplace.1.3 Contribution of learning styles and theories on planning and designing of training eventTraining is given to the employees who fall in specific category like managers,employees and workers. Due to this reason some special learning styles are associated with thetraining event. For example if training event is organized for managers then theorist andpragmatist learning style will be suitable for them. This is because both are related to evaluation
