Employee training is the process of educating employees in order to improve their work performance. Training can address specific skills or knowledge, or it may be more general in nature. Employee development is a process whereby the manager and employee work together to create a development plan.

Training is a process that begins with assessment, takes into account motivation and design, is delivered by the trainer, and is reviewed for effectiveness. The goal of training is to help people learn how to do their jobs better. The key to successful training is the trainer's ability to engage participants in the process.
