Learning and development

A systematic process of developing the knowledge and skills of employees, with the goal of improving both individual performance and business outcomes.

This is commonly referred to as upskilling or reskilling in a corporate context, where employees may be asked to learn new skills or develop a deeper understanding of a given subject in order to become more effective in their work.
