Abstract

Many companies began to consider their training programs as a means to acquire fundamental strategic qualifications to obtain and support competitive advantages. However, few companies were concerned about trainee needs and expectations related to these programs. The opinion of these trainees was surveyed about development opportunities so as to identify the expectations and needs that motivated those seeking these programs and how these aspects were satisfied. Semi-structured questionnaires were completed by FEA business students in the Supervised Training course. After scoring, content analysis was conducted to support qualitative investigation of individual comments. Results disclosed that students expected to apply their acquired education in the real company world so as to grow professionally and achieve recognition inside and outside the company. Further trainees showed motivation to achieve self-accomplishment once the preceding levels of the Maslow hierarchy had been satisfied and indicated that companies offered such opportunities.
