These factors can be considered by the business organization to improve profitability in the internal operations of the company. Main focus of these activities is to focus on the individual employee in organization to encourage them to give their 100 % to the company. According to Bakker and Demerouti, (2018), some of the main benefits of employee development for organization are- performance improvement is major benefit of employee development process. By enhancing skills and knowledge of employees, quality of their work can be improved. All the responsibility of implementing these approaches id on leaders and manager of the company. Effective work environment can be developed by employee development. Employee development approaches and practices can be implemented by the organization to develop learning culture in the workplace. Leader is a person in organization who design the practices and take decision to implemented these practices and approaches in workplace. Line managers are important at the implementation stage of the processes and strategies that are defined by the leader of the company. This high quality can help the company to meet the customer needs effectively. This role of leaders and manager can help the organization to reduce the operational cost of company by reducing the waste produced in the operations.

Main challenges that are faced by leaders and managers of company are- This is most challenging for the leaders and managers of the organization in the change management process. This is most difficult part for the leader and manager of company in which they have to deal with the employees of organization. Di Fabio and Kenny, (2019), has said that this is complex process to make the employees ready to implement some changes in the operational process of organization. Employee resistance is most difficult to handle in the change management process. The other change that is faced by the leaders and manager is related to the monitoring and performance tracking of the employees. In this process various tracking and monitoring tools are needed to be implemented by the leaders and manager of organization. This is a complex process to deal with these tracking and monitoring tools. There are some other challenges are also faced by the leaders and managers in the implementation of employee development and wellbeing in organization (Poulsen and Ipsen, 2017). The most complex thing with this process is related to the satisfying needs of all employees in workplace. For a large size organization this is not possible to implement specific practices or development processes that can be used for all employees of company. These are most common challenges that are faced by leaders and manager in employee development and wellbeing processes.

Range of technologies can be used in the employee development and employee wellbeing process to reduce the pressure on leaders and managers. Different Artificial Intelligence processes and methods can be used in the employee tracking process to improve the racking and performance tracking process. In this process, all the employees can be provided with specific employee number so AI systems can be used to track the performance of employees and take action accordingly. This is how wide employee performance data can be prepared to develop and design various training and development programs effectively. This is how AI can be used by the leaders and manager to track the activities and performance of employees in organization. In this process, some other technologies also can be used to get live status of employee performance to make employee development and wellbeing program more successful (Marescaux, De Winne and Forrier, 2019). This is how different processes and methods can be used by the organization to effectively perform employee development and wellbeing processes.

In the research process, some specific methods and approaches are commonly used by the researcher to complete the research work effectively. The main research methods that are used in the research process are-

Research Type- Research type of research work can be defined as the type of information which is used in research process. For research work, both qualitative and quantitative data can be used. For this research, work qualitative has been used. Qualitative research type mainly consists of theoretical and observation-based information (Mohajan, 2018). This research type will help to analyse research topic in effective way and from a wide perspective complete information related to the research topic can be analysed in the process.

Research Design- Research design can be explained as process or framework that can be used by the researcher to execute the research process and execute various process in the research. This complete framework can be used by the researcher to stay on the research topic while collecting and analysing information. This process can provide specific steps that can be followed throughout the research process. Two research designs are commonly used in the research which are- Exploratory and conclusive research approach. Both approaches are common in the research process. For this research, exploratory research approach has been used in this research. This approach is effective to broadly analyse the research topic.

Research Philosophy- Research philosophy can be explained as thought process that is used by the researcher to conduct the research process. This can be considered as perception of researcher that is considered at the time of research process. In research work, a different type of philosophies is used by the researcher. Realism, positivism and interpretivism. These philosophies are most common in the research process. In this research process, interpretivism research approach has been used to keep the research based on the real observations and most recent data. This is how research can be kept effective for the target audience. 

Research Approach- Research approaches are explained as assumptions and considerations that are considered at the time of research. This is most important for the researcher to consider some assumptions to give proper direction to the research work. The most common research approaches that are used in the research process are Inductive and deductive research. Both approaches are effective for the research process (rngreen and Levinsen, 2017). Inductive research is used by the researcher to use collected data to develop new theories and concepts. These theories and concepts are based on the results that are generated in the research process. On basis of research result, new theories and concepts can be developed. Later these theories and concepts can be used by other organizations and researchers to get solution for the problem that is related to the research process. In this research process, inductive research approach is used to develop various theories and concepts that can be used by leaders and manager to address various problems that are faced by them in operation and employee management. 

Data Collection process- Data collection is defined as process that is used by the researcher to collect data from different sources. In research process, a commonly primary and secondary type of data collection processes is used. Both types of data collection process are effective to get better result for the research topic. For this research topic both primary and secondary approaches of data collection ash been used. In primary research process source of information are directly contacted for the data collection and in secondary data collection process, secondary data collection sources like books, journals, articles, blogs and newsletters are used for the research process. Use of both data collection process will improve the effectiveness of the data that is collected in the research process.

Sampling- Sampling can be explained as process that is used to select primary information sources in the research process. In this research non-probable sampling process has been used to select people for the research process. Specifically in this research process, simple random sampling has been used to select 10 line managers of Aston Martin Lagonda.

Data Analysis- Data analysis process is explained as process of analysing and assessing information and data that is collected in the data collection process. The selection of the data analysis tool or system is dependent on the type of data that is collected in the data collection process (Dodds and Hess, 2020).
