3. Why is employee training important to an organization?
Ans: Coaching employees is one key function of an HR manager. Different training sessions are possible, all with a different yet common purpose. Training familiarizes employees with company policies, work culture, and management. It strengthens team work and gives a common vision to the organization as a whole. Other sessions are ice-breakers meant to make employees feel comfortable in the new environment.
4.What can you tell me about motivation?
Ans:It requires analytical thinking, independence and initiative, problem solving ability, and interpersonal sensitivity. Training is one way to improve motivation. Conflict management is another.

Ans:To receive information, feedback, and coordinate decisions throughout the company for optimal efficiency, HR managers cooperate with other departments within the company.
