Aimed at MBA and Masters students and Human Resources Professionals, Training in the Workplace provides an experience-led analysis of workplace training and development. Drawing on both critically informed empirical research and on Trainer expertise, the book presents the view that the workplace, and specifically workplace training, is a site of conflict between labour and management. In order to give a full view of the issues, tensions and complexity of learning in the workplace, the authors analyse the procedures, resources and outcomes of training, learning and workplace socialisation. Training in the Workplace offers postgraduate and post-experience students and professionals a critical and engaging insight into the workplace as a problematic, contested but significant site of learning.
