The first step in the process is sourcing the candidates. It includes procedures like screening and short-listing. Next up is the hiring task. The screened candidates are evaluated using suitable selection procedures that may include Interviews etc. The ones who clear the selection procedures are hired. Post that, they undergo training.

The objective of the training is to make the employees productive right on the first day. The methods of training can vary from case to case on the basis of requirement and the desired outcome. In some cases, an individual method works, while for other ones, a combination of different methods can be utilised. The candidates are further assessed on several parameters after the completion of their training curriculum. Finally, they become ready to join the workforce.

    Focus on core competency is the most important function for any business or non-business organisation. At the same time, training as a function continues to multiply its importance to an extent that it has become a necessity. Under such a situation, every organisation seeks training solutions for their employees. Since training isn’t a part of their core competencies, it becomes an external area of interest that may require urgent attention to be devoted by the organisation. Outsourcing appears as the viable solution.

    In this modern age, the business environment faces regular challenges in terms of frequent changes.

For the organisation, the need to outsource its training function accentuates, while for the prospective employees, lack of training becomes an obstacle to their successful onboarding. An SHT model where your potential employees are trained before they join, becomes the need of the hour.


    A high turnover rate is costly for any organisation. Frequent departing employees need to be replaced and this happens to be a very time-consuming process. With Source Hire Train, appropriate set of employees are sourced with respect to the demands of the role. They are scrutinised using techniques that measure their employability with respect to the job.

There are certain industries, on the other hand that don’t have the luxury of time. They demand instant employee effectiveness as soon as they join. Source Hire Train comes to their rescue as a suitable alternative!

    SHT prepares employees to contribute productively within a very short span of time. The ultimate objective under Source Hire Train is to build effective employees from the day one. The SHT process is prepared while keeping in mind these objectives. As previously mentioned, the model is well customised according to the client requirements and objectives. It’s important to emphasize on certain focus points rather than a generalised focus. These focus points help in achieving a high degree of employee effectiveness. At the same time, this specific focus enhances the technical knowledge of employees and makes them more suited to their work in an effective manner.


One such instance where Source Hire Train model proved effective was in the case of a quick service restaurant chain. A quick service restaurant business requires minimal preparation time and is expected to deliver its orders through quick services. There’s little scope of on-the-job training as the employees are expected to work in a swift manner catering to the continuous demands of orders. A model like Source Hire Train works well under such a situation.

The prospective employees were mobilised and sourced. Customised training content was developed in accordance with the client’s requirements. A two-week intensive training program provided the insights of the quick service restaurant business. Further, various focus points were chosen and were discussed in details. These included food handling, customer service and communication skills etc. The training was quick and included practical elements that helped the trainees gain a real-life understanding about the functioning of the quick service restaurant chain.

The candidates transformed into job ready individuals and were subsequently placed with the restaurant chain.

This is how Source Hire Train model works in industries that desire job-ready employees on their first day without a compromise on their productivity and efficiency levels.
