Human resource development deals with finding some root problems in the organization and designing some interventions to be able to fix the problem. Training is one of its intervention. Through training, employees will be able to upgrade their skills and correct unnecessary working habits that will result to the increase in productivity.

Also, training is a lifetime activity. The learning curve never stops. Nobody has a complete repository of knowledge, skills, and ability. What one learns today becomes obsolete tomorrow. With the rapidly changing technology, the change in the work assignment, change in the job content, new markets, new products, new processes and a plethora of other changes in the workplace, training is imperative. It is a necessity.

Module 3 of the Industrial Relations and Human Resources Certification course focuses on developing the organization and its employees. It offers to reinvent training to make it more relevant to the time and aligned to the strategic intent of the organization. Training is not merely an episodic intervention, but a continual on-the-job enrichment. It must demonstrate its value and positive impact on the bottom-line results of the company.

  • Know how to diagnose the health of the organization
