The importance of training in contemporary organizations

Keywords: organization, training of employees, education of employees, productivity of organization


This paper describes the concepts of training and career development for employees, level of knowledge of workers, the profit that some companies had from continuous training, and the way in which an organizational psychologist, with the support of management, assesses the need of employees for a particular type of training, according to the method, place and way of work performance. According to the researches, there is a positive correlation between the competencies of each individual employee and the long term growth of productivity of organizations. Learning and development of employees can be a powerful recruitment and retention tool, because investment in employees development demonstrates that the organization values its people, improves their career, makes them more successful at work, and also makes the organization more profitable. The legal norms regulate the professional development of employees, as well as the obligations of the employer who deal with this issue. According to article 49 of the Labor Law, the employer is obliged to provide the employee with education and training, if it is required by the needs of the work process and the introduction of a new way of work organization. The methodology is based on desk research and case study.
