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:
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.)
