Human resource development (HRD) is the framework for helping employees develop their personal and organizational skills, knowledge, and abilities.
Human resource development includes such opportunities as employee training, employee career development, performance management and development, coaching, mentoring, succession planning, key employee identification, tuition assistance, and organization development.
Human resource development provides employees with the skills to meet current and future job demands. By aligning human resource development activities with the organization’s goals a business will be able to reach the necessary results.
