There is a definite reorientation of the work force in this country. The move to a more technical society has been widely forecast, and despite the valleys and peaks driven by fluctuation in economy, the movement is sure and pervasive. Both professional and technician levels of the engineering community must work smarter. For most it means never quite catching up with the level of knowledge available in a given field of work, from routine construction to complicated communication techniques. 'In-house' training or continuing education must be recognized as an essential element of doing business. Many companies have already recognized this requirement, but are continually searching for more streamlined technology transfer methods. Companies must be aware of current practice for developing and implementing employee training and its effectiveness.
