Training and Development in ITI Limited – Bangalore
Human resource is the life blood of any organization. Only through well-trained personnel, an organization can achieve its goals. Training is defined as learning that is provided in order to improve performance on the present job. A person's performance is improved by showing how to master a new or established technology. The technology may be a piece of heavy machinery, a computer, a procedure for creating a product or a method of providing a service. Training is provided for the present job. This includes training new personnel to perform their jobs. Training is mainly concerned with the meeting of two of these inputs -- people and technology. That is, having people learn to master a given technology. The HR functioning is changing with time and with this change, the relationship between the training function and other management activity is also changing. The training and development activities are now equally important with that of other HR functions. Gone are the days, when training was considered to be futile, waste of time, resources and money. Now-a-days, training is an investment because the departments such as, marketing and sales, HR, production, finance etc. depend on training for its survival. If training is not considered as a priority or not seen as a vital part in the organization, then it is difficult to accept that such a company has effectively carried out HRM. Training actually provides the opportunity to raise the profile development activities in the organization. To increase the commitment level of employees and growth in quality movement (concepts of HRM), senior management team is now increasing the role of training. Such concepts of HRM require careful planning as well as greater emphasis on employee development and long term education. Training is now the important tool of Human Resource Management to control the attrition rate because it helps in motivating employees, achieving their professional and personal goals, increasing the level of job satisfaction etc.
