Developing employees is different than training employees, though human resource functions often tend to group these activities together. Training and development are not always mutually exclusive, though they do have a different focus. Though training programs tend to be focused on improving employee performance in a current job, they may also be preparing employees for future assignments/jobs. In your own words, describe and provide at least one example of each of the following:
a) the difference between employee development and training programs;
b) how training programs can be used to support employee development;
c) how training and development support career planning.

You want the session to be effective for the employee, so he/she will have the motivation and knowledge to improve performance.

Be specific and complete…I am looking for a detailed plan and not just a couple of quick sentences.
B) Assume the role of the employee. How would you need to prepare for your performance evaluation meeting?
