Differentiate training from education and development.
For a company to be successful, its employees need to be fully qualified and knowledgeable about their job. The way that companies set themselves up for success is by training and educating their employees. According to Noe, when employees learn, they contribute to the development of intangible assets such as human capital, which is the knowledge, skills, and motivation to deliver high-quality services (Noe, 2017, p. 8). The way that companies accomplish this is through the training of their employees by facilitating of job-related competencies, knowledge, skills, and behaviors by employees. The goal of training is for employees to master their knowledge, skills, and practices emphasized in training and apply them to their day-to-day activities (Noe, 2017, p. 8). The other part of this success is developing the company and its employees through formal education, job experiences, relationship, and assessments of personality, skills, and abilities that help employees prepare for future jobs or positions (Noe, 2017, p. 8). An effective training program allows a company to strengthen the skills that each employee needs to improve. A development program brings all employees to a higher level, so they all have similar skills and knowledge. Training will help to reduce any weak links within the company (Frost, 2019). In my job, my sole responsibility is to train and develop my sailors for deployments; it is my responsibility to plan and implement a training plan that ensures they are fully qualified and prepared to do their job when the ship goes overseas. The way that I accomplish this through the repetitive teaching and practicing of their primary job functions and skills.
