The leading expectation of an organization and its employees is growth. When there is growth, the organization will experience stability, expansion, and good profit margin. The employees also stand to attend to their personal needs and have some level of satisfaction. Growth in an organization is manifested in having large market share with profit, low rejects, and low rate of accidents at work, lower downtime, and harmonious industrial relations among others. Equally, growth is felt by the employees through adequate remuneration, good welfare packages, and job security. In order to realize growth, adequate training and development of the employees are needed as a pivot. The paper therefore, examines the principles, policies, rationale behind the need for training, and gains of training and development. Highlighted also are types of training, training programme designs, and a comparison of characteristics of training and development. This paper suggests that for an organization and her employees to grow, training and development should be in the front burner.
