To improve the competence of employees and to motivate them it is necessary to provide training and development opportunities for employees so that they can reach to the top and keep improving their skill. What people seek is not simply a job but a career. Everyone must have the opportunity to rise to the top. The best way to provide such an opportunity is to facilitate employee learning. Organizations have either in-house training centers or have forged alliances with training and educational institutes to ensure continuing learning of their employees. The organizations too benefit in turn.

Training and development not only motivate employees but these improve the efficiency of work also.
