Training and Development Programs

Training and development programs are mechanisms by which organizations can facilitate skill development of employees. Training is the planned effort by organizations to facilitate required employee learning of job-related knowledge and skills that they can apply to their day-to-day responsibilities. Development refers to the acquisition of knowledge and skills that may improve the ability of employees to meet challenges in current or future jobs; it is generally voluntary and more future-oriented.
