  • A planned effort to facilitate learning of the knowledge, skills, competencies, and attitudes needed for performing a specific task or job and furthering individual and organizational goals. Although training is typically associated with employees' acquisition of knowledge and learning in a cognitive sense, it also applies to the physical skill training of athletes, surgeons, fire fighters, physical therapists, and soldiers, to name a few, where certain physical skills are required to perform tasks optimally. Training increasingly is viewed as a vital part of a worker's lifelong need for continually updating skills to adapt best to rapidly changing workplace demands. For more information, see Werner and DeSimone (2006).
