CHAPTER 1 1.1 INTRODUCTION TO TRAINING ITS MEANING AND DEFINATION

Training is one of the important aspects of manpower development. It has gained significance since 1960s and continues to be growing importance for organizations today. Training is normally views as a short term educational process utilizing a planned, systematic and organized procedure by which non-managerial personnel acquire the technical knowledge and skills necessary for increased effectiveness in achieving organizational goals.

Training can be introduced simply as a process of assisting a person for enhancing his efficiency and effectiveness to a particular work area by getting more knowledge and practices. Also training is important to establish specific skills, abilities and knowledge to an employee. For an organization, training and development are important as well as organizational growth, because the organizational growth and profit are also dependent on the training. But the training is not a core of organizational development. It is a function of the organizational development.

Training is different form education; particularly formal education. The education is concerned mainly with enhancement of knowledge, but the aims of training are increasing knowledge while changing attitudes and competences in good manner. Basically the education is formulated with in the framework and to syllabus, but the training is not formed in to the frame and as well as syllabus. It may differ from one employee to another, one group to another, even the group in the same class. The reason for that can be mentioned as difference of attitudes and skills from one person to another. Even the situation is that, after good training programme, all different type skilled one group of…...

Audit Rotation

...Mandatory Audit Rotation Introduction In 2002, Enron became the largest case of fraud in history. It caused it investors to lose sixty billion dollars, two million two hundred thousand in pension plans, and five thousand six hundred jobs (Enron Sentences Will Be Tied to Investor Losses). This all could have been avoided if public companies were forced to changed independent auditors every five years. Throughout this paper, I will be talking about mandatory audit rotation and why I think it is a great idea. First I will talk about the Sarbanes Oxley act and what it requires when it comes to partner rotation. It is important to know what the current rules and requirements are before we discuss how they should be changed. The next item I will discuss is auditor independence and how it is affected by audit rotation. After I talk about the current rules and independence, I will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of mandatory audit rotation. Sarbanes-Oxley Act In 2002, President George W. Bush signed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 to protect investors from the possibility of fraudulent activities by corporations. This act was aimed to improve financial statements of corporations and prevent fraud. In section 203 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, it gives the requirements of partner rotation. “The new rules provide that an accounting firm will not be independent if either the lead audit partner or the concurring partner performs audit services for more than five......

...People choose careers for many reasons(finacial gail, job satisfaction).What do you think is the best way to choose a career. Use specific reasons and example to support your answer. I know some people who give more thought to what they wear to work each day than they gave to choosing their careers. Personal, I think that career planning is multi-step process that involves learning about yourself, discovering which occupations are suitable for someone with that personality tipe, values, interests and skills. It is very important to have a satisfing job. Job satisfaction has been defined as an affective reaction to one job. So that the happiest people are with their job, the more satisfied they are said to be. For an organization is important that people be efficient. For that they must be motivated. Job satisfaction is not the same as motivation, although it is clearly linked. Job design aims to enhance job satisfaction and performance, methods include job rotation, etc. Other influences on satisfaction job include the management style and culture, employee involvement , empowerment and work in groups. Job satisfaction is a very important attribute which is frequently measured by organisations. The most common way of measurement is use of rating scales where emloyees report the reactions to their job. Questions relate ray of pay, work responsabilities, variety of tasks and promotional opportunities. Some questions ask yes/no questions while others ask to rate......

Mandatory Firm Rotation

...Mandatory Firm Rotation Background With the fast advent of globalization, countries, regions and governments have become more interdependent. Companies all over the world including small- and medium-sized entities work together and across geographies to attain sustainable growth. With the world becoming more borderless, it is then imperative that a strong financial planning must be made available for universal adoption. The international business environment relies on unbiased, clear, consistent, relevant and high quality standards. The task to develop and review internationally accepted standards was given to accounting councils and organizations such as IFRS Advisory Council and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB). With the shared thoughts for a better and universally applicable accounting, accounting-related boards and councils, managers and accountants all over the world constantly review existing standards and examine its implementation. One issue that has been a hot topic of recent debates is the concept of Mandatory Audit Firm Rotation that was released by the PCAOB (TYSIAC, 2012). The Issue The conception of mandatory firm rotation is not fresh and was even considered by the U.S. Congress in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. The Congress however dismissed the concept in favor of the mandatory engagement partner rotation (Point of View, 2012). However, years after the conception of mandatory firm rotation was revived. Last August 16, a concept......

Three Crop Field Rotation

...The significance of three field rotation During the Middle Ages Europe saw many innovations in farming that lead to growth in its population and wealth. One of the most significant advancements was the three field rotation system used in farming. Prior to discovering this new method of farming, farmers would plant crops on one half of its agricultural field living the other half uncultivated. In doing so they were able to harvest crops while uncultivated land would remain preserved. When a crop is continuously grown in an area of land, it robs the soil of nutrition needed to avoid crop failure or possible famine. This method was effective but made the harvest underwhelming. The three field rotation helped increase annual crop yields that benefitted the population, economy and the health of domesticated animals. Farmers discovered they no longer had to cut off half their land for soil preservation but only a third. On one third of the land farmer could grow crops that benefited the uncultivated soil and the food supply of the peasant population. Farmers would grow peas or legumes on a third of the land, by doing so they were able to grow protein rich crops that helped the peasant with a source of a high protein diet. Peas and legumes also provided nitrogen that helped fertilize the uncultivated soil. In the other cultivated third of the land farmers would grow crops such as oats, rye or wheat that they could feed to its livestock. Normally farmers relied on using Oxen to......

On the Job Training

...recognized training as strategic priority and it is great tool to give an organization a competitive advantage. Trainings are divided into two broad types; there are on-the-job trainings and the off-job trainings. Off-job training takes place outside worksite and there are varieties of techniques and that includes conferences, simulations, discussions, case studies, and laboratory trainings…etc. However, these programs are very costly. On-the-job training, on the other hand, is given at workplace as the name implies; employees are trained how to do the job assigned while at work. It is the oldest form of training prior to the advance of off-site trainings and still the predominant form in the United States. OJT can save money, and employees are immediately productive in their job role, building in the same time, a solid working relationship. Nonetheless, there are some disadvantages of it is that sometimes bad habits from the trainer could be passed and production might be decreased to get the trainee up to speed. Also some of OJT are done on ad-hoc manner with no formal procedure or content, and during the process, no specific goals or objectives are specified or developed. Not to mention trainers; those usually have no formal or training experience on training. That is what we can call informal on-the-job training. Lynch (1991) supported that a formal or structured OJT approach is more specific to achieve the firm’s objectives, and is easier to measure its effectiveness......

This experiment is mainly designed to investigate a) the relationship between the angles of rotation of the alphabetical characters and the reaction time to determine whether the letter presented is normal or reversed position and b) whether the mean of the correlation coefficient is significantly greater than zero. A group of fifty- five first year undergraduate students who are studying Psychology course were recruited in the within- subjects experiment. In this experiment, the participants were showed the alphabetical characters (capital letter G and R) in both normal and reversed position in which oriented at different angles of rotation, the participants were required to determine whether the letter presented was in normal or reversed version as accurate and quickly as they can. The results obtains showed that the reaction time increases as the angle of rotation larger and the mean of the correlation coefficient was significantly greater than zero. Thus, this study suggesting that the orientation does affect the reaction time and correlate each other.

Auditor Rotation

...2002). As a result, mandatory audit partner rotation was imposed, leading to the discussion of audit firm rotation. Audit Partner Rotation: SOX Requirements Section 203 of SOX mandates the rotation of audit firms, stating, “it shall be unlawful for a registered public accounting firm to provide audit services to an issuer if the lead (or coordinating) audit partner (having primary responsibility for the audit), or the audit partner responsible for reviewing the audit, has performed audit services for that issuer in each of the 5 previous fiscal years of that issuer’’ (SOX, 2002). This requirement applies to the lead engagement partner and the concurring engagement partner; both partners are also subject to a time out period of up to seven years before returning to the client. Due to the logistics of rotation partners, many audit firms have initiated operational changes in an effort to maintain information consistency. This requirement serves as an amendment to Section 10A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (SOX, 2002). Audit Firm Rotation: PCAOB Proposal After a series of corporate scandals, a report issued in 1977 by the Senate Committee on Government Operations stated that large accounting firms displayed a lack of independence, specifically due to the nature of long standing relationships between the client and the auditor (PCAOB, 2011). In 1978, a report was released by the Cohen Commission proposing audit firm rotation as a measure that could be used to increase......

Mandatory Audit Firm Rotation

...Evidence the supports “Mandatory Auditor Rotation”: Auditor independence is widely considered one of the main causes for the occurrence of accounting fraud and in 2003 congress considered mandatory audit firm rotation as a possible solution. The ruling congress gave was in favor of mandatory audit engagement partner rotation. The reasoning behind the ruling was the surprising lack of evidence found supporting mandatory audit firm rotation as the best solution to improve auditor independence. If mandatory audit firm rotation were passed by congress, auditor independence is likely to improve, however the consequences may not be exactly as anticipated. Audit firms will be further obligated to perform ethical and appropriate work since the next auditor will deeply examine their work. The vast majority of accounting fraud cases in the past have occurred after several years of a company being audited by the same audit firm. The auditor client long-term relationship clearly impairs the auditor independence but is mandatory audit rotation the best solution for auditor independence? We do not agree with mandatory audit firm rotation as the appropriate solution to strengthening auditor independence. Studies have shown that countries requiring mandatory audit firm rotation show little to no evidence that it improves auditor independence. An auditor’s familiarity with the business and the industry in which it operates is essential to the quality of the audit. While accumulating......

An Examination of Partner Perceptions of Partner Rotation

...Partner Rotation: Direct and Indirect Consequences to Audit Quality Key Points: * In order to improve audit quality by making auditors more independent, regulators mandate partner rotation and cooling-off periods. Specifically, partners would be required to rotate off to another client every five years. As stated in the article, rotation improves independence resulting in a positive impact on audit quality. * However, more often than not, partners would much rather enter a new industry than relocate to preserve their quality of life. Most partners opt to retrain rather than relocate, thus affecting audit quality negatively. Based on the findings described in the article, 93% of audit partners reported needing at least two years to become fully effective in a new engagement. Even partners who stay within the same industry line need some time to get used to differing information technology and other processing systems, client personnel, corporate governance characteristics, and the time it takes to gain client trust at the senior management and board levels. * There are some costs related to rotations, and a cost-benefit analysis should be performed. With that said, it might be hard to quantify the costs and benefits of this situation. How do you weigh the improvement in audit quality due to independence against its decline due to a lag in audit effectiveness (resulting from either a change in client or a change in industry altogether)? * Rotations......

Audit Partner Rotation

...integrated into the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, under Section 10A: (j) AUDIT PARTNER ROTATION – It shall be unlawful for a registered public accounting firm to provide audit services to an issuer if the lead (or coordinating) audit partner (having primary responsibility for the audit), or the audit partner responsible for reviewing the audit, has performed audit services for that issuer in each of the 5 previous fiscal years of that issuer.[1] For the purpose of clarity it is deemed that the Lead and Concurring partner perform the critical functions that affect the conduct and effectiveness of an audit engagement.[2] With respect to Section 203 of the Sarbanes and Oxley Act of 2002, the initial law was silent with respect to the time out period; therefore, the SEC ruled that the appropriate length would be a minimum of 5-years[3]. It is the belief of the SEC that the auditor’s independence shall be compromised after its fifth year of service and in fact their independency would no longer exist, as they would be auditing their own work beyond that timeline and that there was a real need for new eyes to further enhance the auditor’s independence. It should be noted, the SEC determined that certain partners are deemed specialty experts and that their primary function is to provide technical resources to the audit team members; therefore, they are to be excluded from rotation.[4] As they have no oversight of the audit activities and have limited interaction with......

...MOI UNIVERSTY MAIN CAMPUS SCHOOL OF HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT COURSE: ORGANIZATION BEHAVIOUR COURSE CODE: CMM 212 NAME: MWANGI D. NDERITU REG: BJC/47/15 INSTRUCTOR: MR. CHEMAI DATE: 29th MARCH 2017 Job Design Discuss how job design affects employee motivation in an organization There has been an assumption that pay is the most motivator of work. However, as much as pay is a motivator, how a job is designed is has a significant impact on employee motivation, job satisfaction, employee citizenship, commitment to the organization productivity and turnover. For this reason, managers most organizations are putting in place strategies geared towards motivating their employees. Through job design, organizations are now focusing on raising production levels by offering non-monetary rewards. Job design envisages all the processes and strategies that an organization employs in deciding the contents of a job with regard to duties, the methods of carrying out the job and the relationship between the employees and their supervisors and fellow colleagues. Among the various techniques used in job design exercise are job simplification, job rotation, job enlargement and job enrichment. Job Specialization Job specialization entails breaking down jobs into simpler components and assigning them to employees so that each of them perform a certain number of repetitive tasks. From a motivational perspective, doing the same task(s) each now and then tends to be very boring due to their......

Mandatory Audit Firm Rotation

...Mandatory Audit Firm Rotation Mandatory audit firm rotation has been discussed by different accounting boards numerous times since the 1970s. Mandatory audit firm rotation would cause auditing firms to change clients after a certain amount of years with the client. The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) has recently opened a discussion on audit firm rotation because the Board is concerned about the many problems that have come up on different auditing reports made by top auditing firms. PCAOB is concerned with auditor independence because they feel that it is being compromised as different firms continue to stay with particular clients for extended periods of time. This paper is going to discuss auditor independence and its effect on audit opinion, the history of audit firm rotation, and the advantages and disadvantages of audit firm rotation because it is a solution that is being considered. According to the PCAOB auditor independence is a description of the relationship between auditor and client and the mindset with which the auditor must approach his or her work. A measure for the mindset is the auditor’s ability to exercise professional skepticism, which is an attitude that includes a questioning mind and a critical assessment of audit evidence. For the last eight years the Board conducted annual inspections of the largest audit firms and found that more than 2,800 of the firm’s engagements were audit failures. An audit failure is a failure to obtain......
