HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT IN SCHOOLS
MA. LIEZL R. DELA CRUZ
Human resource development in schools is very essential nowadays.
A school with a well developed human resource pool has the advantage in molding the foundation of students from a competent teacher or administrator. As such, in the 21st century education setting, education is finding inroads into the classroom, with schools putting a lot of emphasis on the readiness of students for the workplace.
Research shows that in an organization, human resource is one of the most important. The development of this resource is necessary for the organization to grow. Human resources development is about identifying, nurturing, managing, and using the abilities demonstrated by personnel in order to help the school to attain its objectives. The human resources development department in a school is in charge of this function and is there to create the right climate in the organization that the personnel need to help them develop so that they can help the company to develop.
Research also note that unlike other basic resources of the organization, human resource tends to have the potential to help the school grow in an appropriate direction.
Today, schools are using education as a tool to give them a competitive edge. Through such things as education, training, and job profiling, schools, companies, individuals, and entire communities are now able to take advantage of assessments, training, and certification in the workplace environment that is most suited for everyone.
