Training primarily takes care of on-the-job learning of the workforce. For new recruits, training gives them an overview of what their new job role entails and what they must know to perform tasks assigned to them. While, for existing employees, the training helps to improve their competencies to execute their responsibilities more efficiently. A few training programs also aim at the developmental aspect – grooming the employees to hold higher positions or adapt to newer roles in the future.

However, most training programs are run-of-the-mill sessions, where both employees and organizations view it as a mandatory activity on their calendar.
