Is the system of providing opportunities for employees within an organization to reach their full potential (through improving skill and competency), and become of greater value to the organization. Typically, employment development incorporates three sets of activities: training, management development, and career management. The policies and techniques aimed at developing employees differ widely between organizations. Whilst many organizations claim that they value their employees, a good test of whether this is anything more than rhetoric is to assess the organization's employee development systems and budget. If employees are truly valued, then the organization will be willing to commit resources to them through employee development systems.
