What is Learning and Development ?
‘Learning and Development’ refers to the collective employee improvement programs undertaken by the HR of a company. It is also called ‘training and development’ in some organizations.
Learning and development is a significant part of a company’s talent management strategy and it helps the individual employees set goals and performance metrics that align with the company’s vision and mission.
HRs are generally tasked with the duty of identifying the skill gaps in a company by having employee audits or one on one interviews with the employees. Once the common skills gaps are found out, it can be filled by scheduling relevant training sessions.
