What’s The Difference Between Employee Development & Employee Training?

Employee training utilises several programs to enable an employee to develop the necessary skills, practices, and competencies to help them do their job.

Employee development, on the other hand, comprises both professional, physical, and emotional schooling to holistically develop an employee.

But what does this mean?

Well, your staff aren’t machines that you can program to perform certain functions. They are people with emotional physical and intellectual needs. So, to bring out the best in your workforce, you need to focus on both training and developing your employees.

Remote working

The Covid-19 Pandemic has meant that many employees have had to adapt to working from home. This decentralisation of the workforce presents new challenges when trying to implement a development and training program. In a remote setting, misunderstandings are common, and the cultural differences will be more pronounced.
