The Importance Of Employee Training At Nestle

Many organisations today invest heavily in employee training and one such
organisation is Nestlé. Their trainee programs are quite extensive and can span
years. For example, a new international marketing and sales trainee, after
being selected by the organisation, can enjoy the benefits of considerable
investment in their training and development by Nestlé.The international
marketing and sales trainee program starts with a 2-4 month orientation
at Nestlé’s international headquarters in Vevey, in order to give a clear
understanding of the role of the headquarters, and the way it works with
local Nestlé markets. It also introduces specific product categories that provide
the basis of each new employee’s assignment. During these first few months
each employee is given the opportunity to network with as many people as they
can and highlight them as important contacts for future reference.

Once this familiarisation phase is over, the trainee is ready to embark on the
training period. Nestlé will even send trainees abroad to start their training for a
global, expatriate career. This is when the fast-paced training program really
gets under way. The intensive training program is designed to help the new
employee get to know all the various departments that will contribute to their
success and that of the company.During training, the Trainees work in close
collaboration with an experienced Manager who facilitates their learning in
many key areas such as:

 Marketing Strategy – incorporating elements such as brand positioning

and communications, and also designing business plans built to support
the long-term strategic vision for different brands.
 Setting Objectives – how to determine targets for factors like distribution,
profitability, market share, volume, and brand awareness.
 Production – learning about product profiles, renovation and innovation;
how the R&D network and Nestlé Product Technology Centres function
in the context of the organisation.
 Communications – sponsorship, advertising, preparing briefs, consumer
promotions and working with Nestlé Communication Partners.
 Market and Environment Analysis – price point elasticity analysis,
competitors, consumer/shopper research and insights, and various market
studies and methods.

This initial training program is comprehensive and covers all of the different
channels used by the company, and gives a complete overview of the activities
of the firm. It also includes several months work as a representative of the
department – to experience how the job functions, how to interact with trade
customers, and how to be an integral part of the team.

During this phase of the training, the trainee can perform job functions such as:

 Administration – organising the workforce, trade spend and incentives.

 Trade marketing – point of sales activity as well as broader sales channel
 Regional sales – the practical application of sales in the area the trainee
might be assigned later
 Category management – understanding categories and tools.
 Key account management – learning about key accounts and the
importance of key customers, including retail chains and wholesalers.

The depth and breadth of this training represents a considerable investment

by Nestlé in their employees, but also indicates that the organisation believes
such an investment will pay off in the long term. While such an intensive
program might not be practical for many smaller organisations with less
resources, this is still a prime example of the importance and value placed on
high quality employee training by large and successful companies such as
