Abstract— This study intends to specify the particular aspects of staff organization training in term of literatures. A content analysis is conducted to provide an overview of the three approaches including “the cycle of course designing”, “the training stages” and “training methods”. In addition, the new directions of instruction are discussed regarding performed courses in some organizations.

We assert that these findings can assist human resource researchers to introduce with basic concepts of staff organization training.
