The purpose of L&D in the University is to help improve individual and organizational performance through developing employee capabilities.
L&D gives our employees the opportunity to learn and grow in their respective careers by attending professional development programs, training programs, workshops and conferences, which helps us motivate our current employees, as well as attract and retain talent.
L&D also aims to make sure that the employee's objectives and performance are in alignment with the University's strategic objectives.
Learning and development focuses around three key areas:
· Knowledge management (how to improve the individual's skills and gain more knowledge)
· Performance management (how to assess individual performance and identify skill gaps)
· Behavioral changes (has the individual's behavior changed to the better, which is our primary goal)
