In our world of increased global competition, economic challenges, changing technology, and demographic changes, organizations are continually challenged to think about their investment in training and development strategies. Managing Performance through Training and Development provides comprehensive and current coverage of training approaches in practice by successful organizations today. By investing in their employees and focusing on enhancing their knowledge, skills, and abilities, an organization can ensure both employee retention and long-term success. This title is part of the Nelson Series in Human Resources Management, a collection of 6 titles that are built with both students and HR professionals in mind. The titles in the series reflect the most recent research, use examples from Canadian companies, and have become known as valid and reliable resources in each of the functional areas.
