Describe the relationship between training and needs assessment. 

STUDENTS RESPONSE

 

Among recruiting, talent management, compensation, and benefits another responsibility of a Human Resource Manager is to conduct needs assessments and train employees.   Training is defined as a learning process that involves the acquisition of skills, concepts, rules, or attitudes to enhance performance. (Rue, Ibrahim, & Byars, 2016, p.g. 160)   Determining needed training is a big part of conducting a needs assessment.  A needs assessment is an analysis of the specific training activities the organization requires to achieve its objectives.   By conducting an effective needs assessment Human Resources can determine the types of training, if any, a new employee will need in an effort to ensure that they are as efficient as possible.  Also, a needs assessment can assist an employee who has been with the company for some time to add additional skills to their existing skillset in an effort to become promotable.   In summary, according to opm.gov, the assessment should address the resources needed to fulfill the organizational mission, improve productivity, and provide quality products and services. A needs assessment is the process of identifying the "gap" between performance required and current performance.
