Human Resource Management of BNSF Railway - January 24th, 2011

The BNSF Railway (reporting mark BNSF), formerly known as the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, is an American freight railroad company headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas; it is one of four remaining transcontinental railroads and one of the largest freight railroad networks in North America. Only the Union Pacific Railroad, its primary competitor for Western U.S. freight, is larger in size. The BNSF Railway moves more intermodal freight traffic than any other rail system in the world.[citation needed]

It was formed December 31, 1996, as the Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railway when the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway was merged into the Burlington Northern Railroad. In 1999 BNSF and the Canadian National Railway announced their intention to merge and form a new corporation entitled the North American Railways to be headquartered in Montreal, Canada. The United States' Surface Transportation Board (STB) placed a 15-month moratorium on all rail mergers, which ended this merger. On January 24, 2005, the railroad's name was officially changed to BNSF Railway.

Most training is directed at upgrading and improving an employee’s abilities or skills.
Developmental Programs

Difference between Training and Developmental Programs

Training is for the current improvement in the job while developmental program is for improving the skill which will be used in the future.
Both managers and non-managers receive help from training and developmental program but mostly non-managers are concerned with training while the managers are concerned with developmental programs.

To improve three types of skills

Technical skills
Interpersonal skills
Problem solving skills

Types Of Skills (continued)
