Employee development is a collective effort between the employee and the organization to improve an employee’s existing skills and knowledge. Employee development aids in the development of employees so that they can become dependable resources and, in turn, become more beneficial for the company.
Employee development is the process of enhancing existing skills in the employees while also developing new ones to help the company in achieving its objectives. Employee development is more than just creating strategies for the company. It’s not only about putting in place mandated employee training. Employee development necessitates a company’s investment in terms of efforts, money, and time.
It allows HR professionals and experts to build on rather than start from scratch an employee’s existing organizational culture as opposed to technical knowledge and skill.
