Training is those activities which are designed to improve performance on the job, the employee is presently doing or is being hired to do. It can be extended to include the necessary activities to enable the employee to move to an immediate higher level position in the organization but still within the same basic area, of activity. The purpose of training is to either introduce a new behavior, or modify the existing behaviors so that a particular and specified kind of behavior results. Training should be limited to that which produces a direct return on the job. It is just as wasteful to overtrain as to undertrain the employee. Training can open the door for maximization of employee ability. Most employees have a great capacity for training and education that is never touched. Training meets self developmental needs, while it provides the organization with trained personnel capable of being advanced. It can also provide a feeling of being a professional while it increases job security. Training provides the knowledge and skills required for high performance and workers strong desire to produce quality efforts of which they can be proud.
