The objectives of this assignment are to define, explain and apply T&D (Training & Development) theories and concepts as related to the business challenges of the workforce and organizational changes.
You now have a better understanding of how the HR profession is changing and how in turn, new policies and practices of HR management will be designed, developed and implemented. Your organization’s management recognizes that the new plans of the organization to meet their business challenges, is running up against the current culture, processes, demographics, employee expectations and skills. These changes require a workforce that is unified in its coordination and its direction, and up-to-date on its skills and competencies. The rapid workforce changes will also create interpersonal disconnects that will require ethical, as well as business solutions.
The VP of HR has assigned you, the training and development manager, with designing a training program to address the widening gaps. As you have learned in your text there are multiple types, objectives and methods of training. In a two-page written paper (APA Format) summarize the program you will develop to accomplish your directive. Include the methods you will use to establish your objectives and create a training program, using key terms from Chapter 7 of your textbook. Describe the process you will take to determine the needs of the organization, including considerations of increasing diversity, and how you will address the increasingly complex ethical decisions employees are facing. How does your program accomplish the goal of addressing those needs, and how will you evaluate its effectiveness? As addendum to your paper, provide a brief copy of the Agenda for the Training program and a sample Power point presentation for the Training (Sample of slides so the maximum is 5). Try to avoid “Death by PowerPoint”, i.e. simply text summarizing training plan.
