Q8) Training and Development William Hill believes training is very essential for their company especially when it proves for employees to develop within the organisation and continuing to meet objectives. Training can be seen as an investment in human resources in order to increase profitability and as a consequence be more competitive whereas development in my view is projected as a certain reward for their competence which can be received through promotion. Training is important as employees skills need to be adaptable to any circumstances and developed in order to enhance confidentiality.

William Hill could use this as they could teach employees about what goes on in the business. It's a lot easier for the employee to ask questions about things that they may feel they don't understand and have them answered there and then. Also being able to have areas demonstrated in a practical format would benefit the employee. Apprenticeships provide people with broad based training along with key skills. After they complete the course they graduate and become an employee.

Development This is to enable individuals within William Hill to realise their potential for growth in the organisation. There are many ways you can measure individuals potential, such as appraisal, an analysis of employee's performance or a system of assessment centres. There are also many ways an employee can be rewarded for their potential, such as promotion, job rotation, job enlargement and job enrichment. William Hill offer all staff all the opportunity to develop themselves, that is why if one has the ability can progress to management level and then given the opportunity will have to go through management induction program, this will aid William Hill as workers will be more motivated as they will gain a sense of achievement which leads to greater employee retention.
