The importance of human resources in an organization depends more on those resources, for attainments of its objective. However, these objectives cannot be achieved unless the organization is made up of employees who have skill, knowledge and abilities to work. Employees may have these qualities but skill find it very difficult to cope with their jobs to some factors such as organizational changes and so on.
Therefore, the management of organizations involves training and development of manpower, as one of it’s various activities. When workers are employed, they are just left to stay and work until they are due for retirement but are being trained and developed in order to increase their abilities, skills and knowledge. Experiences have shown that many employees have failed in their organizations, because the provision of training as an indispensable part of management function was not rendered to them.
