Training and Development Function

Activities in HRM related with assisting employees to develop up-to-date skills, knowledge and abilities
 Training: acquiring better skills for their job
 Development: preparing employees for their next promotion/ position

The training and development function include:
1. Socialization
2. Orientation
3. Employee training
4. Employee development
5. Organizational development

 Socialization, training and development are all used to help new employees adapt to their new organizations and become fully productive.
 Ideally, employees will understand and accept the behaviors desired by the organization, and will be able to attain their own goals by exhibiting these behaviors.

(The 5 elements of Training and Development function are described in later posts.)
