Capella University HR Training and Development Research Paper

Possible challenges:

  • Teamwork is lacking in some functional units. Many employees are operating as individuals in areas where teamwork is essential. Poor or inadequate goals and objective setting seems to be a key issue.
  • There is a lack of preparation and orientation for newly hired employees. Many are not prepared for their job within the organization because of inadequate job-related training on company policies or procedures.
  • Employees appear to be wasting time and working inefficiently. Time management seems to be a problem for many.
  • Burnout is a very significant issue in the organization, especially among nursing staff. Supervisors are struggling to deal with the issue.
  • Or choose and define a comparable challenge of your own.

  • A list of employee types who should be included in the training and why.
  • A detailed description of the training topics and vector (seminar, online, conference, workshop, brown bag, et cetera). The budget and schedule should accurately reflect this choice.
  • A budget (personnel, equipment, supplies, et cetera). Make sure to document any assumptions you make.
  • A schedule with milestones associated with content creation and training delivery.
