APPLICATIONS IN TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT

APPLICATIONS IN TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT

Introduction

In today’s hypercompetitive business environment, an organization’s sustainable competitive advantage is derived largely from intangible assets: human, social, and intellectual capital. Human resource professionals enable current and future organizational competitiveness by ensuring that people with the skills, knowledge, and abilities needed to produce these resources are in adequate supply. This is accomplished through employee training, talent management, and performance management.

As a human resource professional, your ability to effectively plan and implement employee training, develop talent management programs, and facilitate performance management will directly contribute to your organization’s success.

As you work on this task, you may find it helpful to reference information found on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) website. Links to the relevant OSHA web pages can be found in the web links section below.

SCENARIO

You are the newly appointed director of training and development for a midsize construction company, Alliah Construction, operating in five states in the northeastern United States. Although you have been on the job for only a short time, a project requires your immediate attention.

One service provided by your company is residential roofing installation, repair, and replacement. Each job is performed by a crew consisting of an on-site supervisor (see the attached “Position Description for Roofing Supervisor”) and laborers with varied skill levels. Although management knows that construction work is inherently dangerous, the company has experienced three serious accidents on roofing jobs in the past month. An accident report from an OSHA inspector identified numerous safety violations that could have contributed to the accidents (see the attached “Injury and Illness Incident Report”).

Senior management has directed you to plan and implement a mandatory training program on workplace safety for all roofing supervisors.

REQUIREMENTS

Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. An originality report is provided when you submit your task that can be used as a guide.
You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that will be used to evaluate your work. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course.

Tasks may not be submitted as cloud links, such as links to Google Docs, Google Slides, OneDrive, etc., unless specified in the task requirements. All other submissions must be file types that are uploaded and submitted as attachments (e.g., .docx, .pdf, .ppt).

For this task, the file size of your submission must be no more than 200 MB. Your submission must be submitted as a Word, Pages, or PDF file. Your file name may only contain letters, numbers, spaces, and the following symbols: ! – _ . * ‘ ( )
