Many companies now recognize that learning through training, development, and knowledge management helps employees strengthen or increase their skills in order to improve or make new products, generate new and innovative ideas, and provide high-quality customer service. Thus, an emphasis on learning through training, development, and knowledge management is no longer in the category of “nice to do”-they are a “must do” if companies want to gain a competitive advantage and meet employees’ expectations.
