Educational Needs Assessment for Warehouse Workers (Case of Govah Company)
School of Management, Islamic Azad University, Central branch, Tehran, Iran
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to perform a training needs assessment to find out if training will improve the
warehouses performance problem and if changes need to be made with the warehouse's training procedures. With a goal for companies to reduce slack and to stream line inventory by moving to more modem practices such as just-intime inventories it looked like warehousing was going to be superseded. The goal to streamline inventory is still intact, but warehousing has not only survived, it has picked up steam as a strategic logistics tool. Man things have allowed warehouses pick up business. Another reason has been their ability to justify their existence by finding better ways to meet the needs of their customers. In order to ensure better customer service warehouses have worked on their efficiency and accuracy. There are many ways to become more efficient; such as, order picking, operator training, and warehouse layout just to name a few.
