The topic of this research is to investigate the training and development of O24U to improve employees’ performance. This research aims to: firstly, investigate the process of O24U NZ Ltd using training and development; secondly, to research the relationship between the training and development and employees’ performance; and finally, to identify several recommendations on training and development to improve employees’ performance.
O24U NZ Ltd was founded in 2015. and is located at Hamilton CBD. It mainly provides healthcare products made in New Zealand and Australia. There are four people currently working for the store, and there are about 20 competitors of O24U, such as Green, Sunshine and DeKang, in Hamilton.
Literature for the review was chosen through the scope (training and development, healthcare product industry in New Zealand and China, strategic human resource management (SHRM) and benchmarking). The researcher conducted four interviews to gather the necessary data for this study (3 employees of O24U and one staff member from one of the competitors). The data were analysed through inductive thematic analysis. Six themes were analysed: the purpose, type and issues of training and development, on-boarding, SHRM and the benefits of Oceanian healthcare products. The researcher found that training and development are vital for any organisation, on-the-job training has become the most popular approach to operating training and development programmes, and the main function of SHRM is to manage employees’ values creation capacities. Several recommendations are made which include five aspects (situation of the store, using systems, stocktaking, packaging and cleaning).
