ΟΑΕΕ employees, 138 persons, of which 102 participated at least once in a JR program, while 36 never did so. From
the findings, it was concluded that intra-business training provides to the employees knowledge and skills, which
contribute not only to the improvement of provided services, but also to the modernization and updating of the
organization. In this framework Job rotation provides to the trainee employees knowledge, skills and experience,
