Lately lifelong learning has become an integral part of the whole society. This is also the reason for the greatest development of new concepts serving just the implementation of lifelong learning policy. These changes in the process of continuous education are in practice much more than a comprehensive adaptation of the education system, which is why this trend is currently understood mainly in the developed countries of the world as a response to the changing labor market. Lifelong learning thus provides individuals with a better perspective and at the same time increases the chances of an organization in which they succeed and differentiate themselves on a global scale. That is why we can designate lifelong learning, learning and constant improving as an essential part of the development of managers. Education and training of human resources in organizations form a significant part of lifelong learning. Employee training focuses on shaping individuals, their skills and increasing their competitiveness on the global market.
