DTR Inc.'s Work Readiness And Customer Service Training Program A Success In South Africa
Networx For Career Development, a division of the Networx Group, a South African nonprofit corporation, used DTR Inc CEO Jay Goldberg's book, Comprehensive Work Readiness and Customer Service Training Program as the base for its successful program.

In South Africa, graduates are having difficulty finding employment. The nonprofit corporation, the Networx Group, identified one of the major obstacles for graduates getting hired was the gap between the expectations of employers and recent graduates; employers tend to expect graduates to be ready to run with their new jobs when hired, while graduates expect employers to show them the ropes.
So Networx established a six month workplace training and coaching program; two months of training, and four months of on the job practical skills based coaching.
The goals of their program were:
200 graduates recruited to receive training and on the job coaching.
At least 90% (180 candidates) of the candidates will successfully complete the program.
At least 50% (90 candidates) of the candidates that complete the program will get hired at the end of the program.
The centerpiece for the two months of training is Jay Goldberg's book, Comprehensive Work Readiness and Customer Service Training Program.
Here are the results of the six month program:
200 people enrolled
91.5% completed the program
70% were employed at the end of the program
The text that follows was taken from Networx Group's final impact and assessment report. "It is worth noting that the Networx Group and the Nicholas Bhengu Foundation was able to instill the values of Excellence, Hard work, Diligence and Team work. The programme created an enabling environment for the graduates to reach their maximum potential – A results orientated and excellence orientated culture and approach encouraged the graduates to excel in everything they do and be leaders in their fields! This is evident on the quality of graduates produced at the end of the programme. We received excellent feedback from both employers and the graduates."
Comprehensive Work Readiness and Customer Service Training Program is available on Amazon (both a student edition and an instructor edition). Here is a link to Jay Goldberg's author page on Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/
