Syeda Rida-E-Fiza, Muhammad Farooq, Faria Ibad Mirza, Shamas -Ud-Din


Employee training and development enables employees to develop skills and competencies necessary to enhance bottom-line results for their organization. They may not see the immediate results of training on their return on investment, although training is crucial to the long-term prosperity of any business. In times of economic hardship, training is seen as an additional expense rather than as an investment in a business' future. So understanding the barriers to effective training before implementing training methods can save businesses time and money. To measure the learning barriers, the research used the framework developed by Darkenwald and Merriam (1982). The research used a convenient Sampling Method. The women in Islamabad are chosen as target for the research. Who have the average ICT skills but the women working at a supervisory position were having good ICT skills. Women of Islamabad are actually lacking in the learning ability. Working women in Islamabad are lower than expected, even though they do not face serious learning barriers.
