Main goals of Human Resources Development

In general terms, the main goal of HRD is to enable a business to achieve a success due to people who work there. More precisely, we can identify the following goals of HRD:

  • Creating conditions favorable for teamwork and flexibility: HRD aims to create a working environment that encourages collaboration and cooperation among employees, as well as adaptability to change. This can be achieved through effective communication, clear role definition and delegation, and a culture of trust and mutual respect.
  • Ensuring equal opportunities: HRD aims to promote diversity and inclusion within the workplace by implementing policies and procedures that ensure equal opportunities for all employees, regardless of their background, race, gender, religion, or any other protected characteristic.
  • Keeping and developing the mental and physical condition of workers: HRD aims to promote the physical and mental well-being of employees by implementing programs and policies that promote healthy lifestyles, work-life balance, and stress management.
  • Taking account of differences in individual needs of employers and employees: HRD aims to understand and accommodate the unique needs and preferences of individual employees, as well as the needs of the organization as a whole. This includes providing flexible working arrangements, accommodating employee benefits and rewards, and fostering a sense of belonging and engagement among employees.
