Continuous development of an organization's human resources is linked to several benefits. The learning and development (L&D) function of HR management comprises a systematic set of activities to help provide employees with key skills and competencies required on the job. The goals of the L&D function in organizations include aligning employees' skillsets with the organization's objectives, closing skill gaps, and enhancing overall capability of people and the organization. In this course, you'll explore theoretical and practical aspects of adult learning, training development and delivery, measurement of training effectiveness, and employee development programs in organizations. You will also learn about career development and career management. The content is based on the Body of Competency and Knowledge (BoCK), 2015 of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). While the course helps learners to prepare for the SHRM-CP/SCP certification exams, it is equally useful for HR professionals who want to develop capabilities for improving their effectiveness in the workplace and advancing their careers.
