HRM326 Wk 5 Individual Apply Development Plan
Employee Development Plan
The purpose of this development plan is to ensure proper training of employees so as to enable them to handle all the changes made in the operations of the company. The introduction of new machines and changes in the processes, as well as production in the company, requires proper training of the employees in all possible aspects. The training would include handling the machines, new operations strategies, and production strategies. The plan would follow all the legalities and abide by employer responsibilities with the aim of meeting the needs of the employees.
Plan Legality and Protected Class
The development plan and the training, in general, should comply with all the employment regulations as well as safety precautions in the workplace. The plan involves work health and safety training, fire and emergency training, industry-specific training, and changes to work health and emergency (“Legal obligations when training staff,” 2018). This, therefore, is proof that the development plan adheres to the regulations of the workplace. The legality of the plan can be identified from the safety and security measures put in place.
During the training, the safety and security of the employees is a priority an all the legislations put in place and in accordance with the Work Health and Safety Act of 2011. The plan provides safety and security training to employees and should comply with all the employment regulations. The training provided in the production sector should also unsure about the safety of the environment at large.
The training practice, in general, should not be based on aspects that may offend different protected classes such as people with disabilities of one kind or the other, people of a different race, religion, color, and age. In other words, the plan should ensure equality among the employees. It should adhere to anti-discrimination laws. The safety and security of all employees should be ensured as well as equal treatment and payment of the employees (“EEO Terminology,” 2016). The training should promote diversity in the workplace is the success of an organization depends on diverse thinking. The plan should also involve the creation of new protection regulations that guarantee equality among employees from different classes.
Occupational and individual assessment
The training should assess the organizational performance and identify the skills, abilities, and knowledge required to meet the organizational needs. At this point, the training should assess what is required to solve the problems and the weaknesses of the organization and, as a result, enhance the strengths. This assessment would take into consideration the political changes, economic and technological changes (“Planning & Evaluating,” 2019). With this in place, the training should also be aimed at identifying employee skills and knowledge in specific positions. The plan can be used to assess the best position for employees based on their skills and knowledge. It can be used as a promoting strategy for the affected occupational groups. It can assess how well an individual employee is doing a job and their capacity to do a new or different job.
The training should consider cultural needs and ensure that there is a cultural understanding between the employees and the targeted customers. Employees should be trained on the ways of different cultures so as to promote the proper functioning of the organization at large. The cultural assessment would involve employee understanding of different cultural believes and their ability to work with and serve people from different cultures. This assessment would assist HR in placing employees in different positions, depending on how well they respond to cultural training. The positions and opportunities of the employees would not only depend on the skills but also their understanding of different cultural practices.
All the training aspects should abide by The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The plan should be against discrimination against a job application or employment because of people’s race, color, gender, religion, and age. All employees should receive the same treatment during training and recruitment. They should be given the opportunity to put into action their skills and knowledge rather than being set aside for unrealistic reasons (Johnston, 2019). As much as the training would be based on the abilities of the employees, they should be given equal opportunities. An assessment can be held based on their performance during the training sessions.
