Training is highly significant within the area of diversity as it teaches professionals and students to convey ethical practices and methods within the workplace and ensures that they adhere to ethical protocols (Polchin, 2014). It also allows for the display of ethical behaviors that can further promote a particular business and a fair working environment. As such, diversity and training is significant to organizations and their people as it allows them to both grow and develop and encourages the achievement of goals and higher work outputs. Training is key in also maintaining positive working relationships and maintaining morale within an organization. Employees feel a sense of worth and value when their organization provides essential training courses. Training shows employees that the organization cares about their respective development (Business Performance, 2015).
The major components of an effective training plan include professional development, a foundation in theoretical and practical requirements or components, gradual improvement and progression in difficulty throughout the respective training plan, the provision of a number of obstacles and challenges and an end state or goal (Business Performance, 2015). Ultimately, the training plan aims at improving the respective knowledge and abilities of its participants. The organization in response, will be provided with a higher skill level and improved capability to reach its own goals and to strive to improve and succeed in the future. A better trained workforce results in greater results and the ability to diversify and further challenge its respective aims, objectives and overall mission (Polchin, 2014). Training allows respective individuals to grow and progress within their particular career field.
Training inspires employees and organizations to reach greater heights and to actively search for greater opportunities and reasons to succeed in the future. Employees can maintain high levels of motivation if they understand that training plans aim at improving their overall knowledge and most significantly, preparing them for further progression and development in the future.
