Few dispute the importance of developing a workforce full of well-trained employees. But no matter how carefully workers are recruited and hired, most employers realize not everybody lands in a new job with all the skills and knowledge the employer desires. And certainly longtime employees can’t be expected to stay on top of their game without at least periodic training.
So the task of keeping employees well-trained is top of mind for many employers, and it’s often the human resources department that’s responsible for making the necessary training happen. A recent survey from Business and Legal Resources shows that HR is involved in various facets of training, including deciding the content and format of employer programs and how to allocate training dollars.
