With the increasing needs and competitive nature of the economy, along with the high levels of change in the demographics, occupational and workplace changes, there is now a high growth in the need of workplace training. Training and development of human resources is a very important aspect of every business. The HR management devises the training methodologies and strategies, after careful consideration of the job specifications and the way in which the new employee will contribute towards the strategic goal of the organization. It is the HR manager’s responsibility to "ensure the integration of personal and organizational development for employees" (Scribner and Sachs). Keeping the employees motivated is a crucial element to ensure the success of the organization. The HR management acts as the medium giving many opportunities for the employees to develop themselves by acquiring new skills and engage themselves in the continuous learning process. The hard skills that will be necessary for the training will include the product and process training. Once a candidate has completed this successfully, they will also receive other training including selling techniques, managing people, customer communication, marketing skills, and self-confidence.
As said very rightly by Dulewicz (1989), "’ a basic human tendency to make judgments about that one is working with, as well as about oneself". It is noted that appraisals are inevitable and is universal. People evaluate how well a job is done to set performance standards. To ensure better performance standards, it is essential to understand that education and training do not only form a part of the realm of educational institutions. It is now becoming a wider and broader system which involves workplaces, educational institutions, individuals and also numerous other government and community organizations. As mentioned earlier, the need to perform is now one of the most essential aspects of any job or business.
