TITLE OF THE STUDY
“A STUDY ON THE OVERALL TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES IN BIG BAZAAR”
Human Resource Management is a function of Managing an Organization, not merely the structure but the people working in that structure as well as towards achieving the goals/objectives, HRM is of paramount importance in the success of any organization in the rapidly changing management. The development of personnel is essential for the survival and attainment of goals of the organization. So every modern management has to develop the organization through human resource development. Training is the important sub system of Human Resource Development. In this era of global competition every organization has to optimize its performance. This can be achieved through employee training. Therefore training is an inseparable ritual in every organization. Training refers to the training and learning activities carried on for the purpose of helping members in a organization to acquire and apply knowledge, skill, attitude needed for performing the jobs. In the words of Edwin. B. Flippo Training has been defined as-“Training is an act of increasing the knowledge and skills of an employee for doing a particular job”. Employee training has been an integral part of an organization since the beginning of an industrial age. It is assumed that the method with which the training has been important to the employees has evolved along with the industries since their inception. It has been conceived that on-the-job training was given the priority in the years of industrial age. In time, as the size of the industries grew with the nourishing of industries on-the-job training became difficult. As a result classroom and instructor led came into existence. In startup companies, HR's duties may be performed by a handful of trained professionals or even by non-HR personnel. In larger companies, an entire functional group is typically dedicated to the discipline, with staff specializing in various HR tasks and functional leadership engaging in strategic decision making across the business. To train practitioners for the profession, institutions of higher education, professional associations, and companies themselves have created programs of study dedicated explicitly to the duties of the function. Academic and practitioner organizations likewise seek to engage and further the field of HR, as evidenced by several field-specific publications.
