In organizing events, there is not much time for training. Decision making occurs on the run and the event is over before anyone can think about performance appraisal. The environment is further characterized by a fast pace, high stress levels and many workers are fatigued by the bump in period before the event audience pours through the gates to add yet another level of pressure. These features of the human resources environment are quite different to those of the traditional workforce. (Wagen, 2006)
The selected appointees should be taken through a proper induction (or orientation) and training program, so that they can relate to the plans of the Library of Congress regarding the National Book Festival and develop a bonding with the cause themselves.
