Assessment system design seminar

Seminar on service industry assessment system design points

"Assessment systems are the most powerful tool for personnel cultivation!"
This is the favored theory of Mr. Arimoto, who has served as the head of education and training for businesses with stores and staff all over Japan, including McDonald's and Uniqlo. Wanting to cultivate the company's ideal store managers as quickly as possible is something every manager and personnel affairs supervisor considers, however it is often that assessment systems are not linked to these considerations. In this seminar, based on his own experiences, Mr. Arimoto explains ways of thinking and points for construction of assessment systems which will serve as powerful tools in the cultivation of the ideal employees.

There are also plenty of examples where assessment systems always become overly complex, aren't put into practice in the field, or don't function. With his 40 years of field experience, Mr. Arimoto will explain "systems which actually function in the field and systems which do not impose excessive burden on the assessors" based on his own unique and highly relevant experience. It is more effective to improve assessment systems while a business is still small.

The content will prove useful for a wide variety of participants including businesses considering future shop number expansion and as well as businesses already operating under a chain system. This will be the first time Mr. Arimoto speaks on themes in front of the participants. This is a must see lecture for managers and personnel affairs supervisors.

He helped establish "GROWING ACADEMY" in 2012 and serves as the organization's president to impart his know-how on personnel cultivation in the store environment built up over his many years of experience in both large scale as well as small and medium businesses.

The majority of businesses considering expanding into Thailand share the same concerns.

  • Are personnel of supervisor level sufficient for local managers ?
