evaluation of training
Evaluation is a crucial component of training and development, because it allows HR professionals to determine whether or not their initiatives are producing the desired results. HR professionals should be aware of a variety of evaluation outcomes, practices, and designs when assessing the results of training programs. In addition, HR professionals should have the necessary skills for revising and improving training programs when results fall short of expectations.
