Nowadays, education and training of employees are crucial for the development of
employees and organizations. Employers and employees should be aware of their
importance. Workplaces are changing daily and are consequently demanding increasing and
new knowledge. In order for employees to be suited for more quality jobs,
organizations encourage them for greater integration and productivity by making them gain
new and specific knowledge. Like investing into the development of work equipment and devices, it
is also necessary to invest into employees. Education and training of employees are
namely also connected with the competitiveness of the organization on the market.
The purpose of the research, which was carried out with surveying, was to find out, how much
attention the organization pays to the fields of education and training of employees, which
employees have more possibilities for education, employee satisfaction with the quality of
educational programmes and what motivates them the most in this case.
The results of the research show that in the selected organization, there is
insufficient attention given to the field of education and that employees, who are part
of the leadership, are mostly taking part in educational programs. Men as well as
women are mostly encouraged for educational programs by promotion at the work place and better
salary. Suitable suggestions for the introduction of changes would be team building,
additional educational programs and workshops.
