Career Development and Training

In recent decades, career development has seen a shift in the way it is approached. Traditionally, it was up to an organization to ensure that its employees had the skills to meet the company's long-term goals. Now, however, employees advocate that they are-and should be-responsible for their own career development.

This shift has changed the way that organizations handle career development. Career development is viewed today as a kind of partnership with employees. It is also a key component of a company's attraction and retention strategy. Many candidates will not consider employment with an organization unless it offers career development as a basic component of its culture.
