117 different contexts. In terms of human resource development, it is often necessary to define and delineate these in a bid to clarify the associated activities and desired outcomes within an organization. Employee training, in particular, is associated with on-the-job skills acquired for a particular role, while education is seen as relating to a more formal academic background. However, in increasingly complex organizations, it may be argued that aspects of each are necessary to ensure full employee potential. In this paper, I will outline some of the traditional definitions of these terms and their implications for human resource development, and demonstrate how they are best viewed as interconnected. Training Training is often referred to as imparting specific skills and behaviour. The specificity is in terms of learning a specific course content or skill such as a computer language, machine operations, and playing tennis. The focus is on improvement in performance after training along with a perceptible behavioural change. In that sense, they differ slightly from conceptual or intellectual ones. Training often caters to organizational needs. The training program may be prompted because of certain changes present or anticipated in the structure and processes of organizations. Hence, the impact of training may be experienced and assessed by the organization immediately, usually, administrative, supervisory, and technical workforce may be exposed to training programs. The banks in the country in the early nineties had implemented advanced ledger posting machines (ALMS) and, for this purpose, they undertook extensive training of their operational and systems people. Similarly, now most of the public sector banks are implementing core banking solution (CBS) and for this purpose they are training their systems, networking, and operations personnel.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
