Unit 4 Assignment
CM220 – College Composition II
Goodwill employees should be provided with standardized training, which will allow them opportunities for advancement in the company and pay; customer service will increase due to the online training which will allow customers to have a better understanding of how Goodwill helps the community.
This is in my opinion, a claim of policy. The goal is to create an online training website, which all Goodwill’s can access.

However there are jobs that Goodwill can provide standard training on that will allow associates to move into other jobs within Goodwill or to an outside agency. The research to find if training is needed will be performed in several ways. First the “List Serve”, which is a mass mailing email list, will be provided from Goodwill Industries International. The email list can be accessed from Goodwill.org. You can specify certain departments, such as: HR, IT, etc. Using the department list of your choosing, you can email every person in the Goodwill movement for a quick question and answer session. These questions can be, “Is your Goodwill interested in training?”, “do you currently provide training?” With the responses from members, you can see if training needs to be addressed. From those interested, you can then setup online surveys to dig deeper into what training is needed, and what they would like to see. From these research answers training can be created and testing of the online access can begin.

With the proper training employees can be placed into jobs outside of Goodwill, or to have the opportunity to move higher within the company. Standardized training will address those needs. Training will provide the basics for the employee’s job, and help them
