Detailed Guide on Objectives of HRM | Training and Development in HRM, Types of Training, and different Training Methods in HRM

Hi All, Welcome to yet another blog article of Learn HR Blog. In this article, I am going to explain more on Human Resource Management and will be covered various topics such as Objectives of HRM, Training and Development in HRM, Career Planning in HRM, Recruitment in HRM, Recent Trends in HRM, Compensation in HRM, International HRM, Significance of HRM, and major HRM Books which every HR Professional should be reading. I will be explaining each one in detail. So let’s start.

Objectives of HRM

As all of you might be aware that HRM has many objectives and goals of which we will be explaining some of them in detail. The primary objective of Human Resource Management is to provide a competitive and willing workforce for the Organisation. The other course objectives of HRM can be classified into four categories. They are namely

1) Societal

2) Functional

3) Organizational

4) Personal.

Now let’s check out each objective of HRM in detail.

1) Societal Objective

HR also has a social responsibility. It has to use the resources with a meaningful way to not only improve the Organisation but also to make or bring a change in society by following the laws and regulations of the government, providing necessary employment to the people, etc. HRM also should not harm or hurt the society in any way as they are to the Organisation but in turn, should bring growth and have a good strong bonding with the society as well. Human Resource team should also maintain a very prosperous relationship with the Union and the Management. It should look into the problems of the workforce and try to rectify it whenever required. Human Resource Management has a responsibility to bring a good change in their employees’ life which overall brings major changes to society.

2) Functional Objective

Human Resource Department plays a major role in the overall functioning of the Organisation. It acts as a bridge between all the Departments. HR Team co-operates with every department for the needs of the organization.

Human Resource Management has to fit itself to match the different demanding needs of the Organisation. The entire function of the Organisation can get affected if the HR Department is not properly coordinating with all other departments of the Company and also if HR Department doesn’t play a proper mediocre role between the Employee and the Management. This can also adversely affect the total growth of the Organisation, therefore HRM also plays a very vital part in the organization’s profit.

3) Organizational Objective

Organizational Objective is one of the course objectives of HRM in which the HRM itself works as an Organisation to match the needs of its Organisation which means that they have to make sure that every department in the organization is working properly. Human Resource Management aims to increase the overall productivity of the Organisation. In simple words, HRM works hard to enhance the smooth running of the organization.

4) Personal Objective

The final main objective of HRM which I am going to explain is the personal objective of HRM which is to improve the talent of every individual employee. It has to take care of its workforce. It tries to help it’s employees individually and thereby bringing an overall development in the organization. It has to retain and motivate the hard-working employees and provide them with certain compensation for their work. If HRM fails in it then the employees will bid farewell to their jobs which may result in a decline in the overall performance of the organization. So hope you have understood the main goals and objectives of HRM.

Now let’s discuss Training and Development in HRM, training methods in HRM, and different types of training in HRM.

Training and development in HRM

Training and development is one of the main functions of Human Resource Management. Training is the process of enhancement of an employee’s skills through learning. Therefore Training and Development is also called Learning and Development. It also means to train to adapt to the situation or to increase the efficiency of particular tasks. Development is the improvisation of an employee’s talent to the next level or developing an employee’s aptitude to increase his self-confidence. It also means developing leadership, human relations, adaptability, productivity, etc. The main function of the human resource department is to design or plan programs that would excavate and enhance the inner talents of an employee. Programs also have to be conducted not only on the technical issues of the employees but also on the behavioral side as well to help the employees to build their character and to make themselves into a better employee. The Programs conducted should be suitable for the growth of the organization as well as to improve the skills and talents of the employees. The primary aim of training and development in HRM is to increase the skills of employees which reflects in the company’s profitability. The types of training in HRM or the training methods in HRM can be classified into four types.

1. Induction Training

2. On the Job Training

3. Off Job Training

4. Performance Related Skill enhancement Training Programs (Internal and External Training Programs)

Let’s take a look at all four types of training methods in HRM in detail.

1. Induction Training

Induction Training is a type of training program given by the HR Department to all newly joined employees from Lower Grade to the Highest Graded employees to make them aware of the whole organization such as its Mission, Vission, Motto, Locations of the different Branches of the Company, Departments and their HOD’s, Leave Rules, Attendance Rules, and any other important Rules or HR Policies that the new joiners have to follow, training on Employee Self Service if Company is having an HRIS System (software used to track attendance, leave, payroll, etc) implemented in the Company, and also may include any information that HR needs to inform the newly joined employees. One of the main types of induction training provided is Powerpoint Presentation Induction which is commonly called PPT Induction where the HR Department will conduct Induction training to an individual new employee or a group of new employees using a PowerPoint presentation.

2. On the Job Training

Another method of training is On the Job Training. This type of training is provided to the newly joined employee by the respective Department where he/ she has to work. This is done when the HR department handover the new employee after completing his/her joining formalities with the Company and completing the Induction Training. This is to make sure that the new employee gets to adapt to the new environment, new co-employees, and to get an awareness about the projects or work which he/she has to work. In some organizations On the Job Training is directly linked with the confirmation of an Employee which means if the rating provided in the On the Job Training is satisfactory only, the employee will be confirmed.

3. Off Job Training

Off Job training programs are another type of training in HRM. This is provided when you are not an employee or you are about to be an employee of a particular organization. It is done to provide initial support to the employee to get into the organization smoothly. This gives a clear view of what the company is about, the structure of the company, and clarifying any doubt that he/she has before they join the Company, etc. In simple words, this training is given to make an employee have a very good mindset at the time of joining the organization.

4. Performance Related Skill enhancement Training Programs (Internal and External Training Programs)

This is a very important method of training where gaps in technical skills and behavioral skills are identified based on the performance of each employee and then training is imparted for the required employees. The HR Department or the Traning and Development Team has to do a certain step by step process to successfully provide these training programs to the employees and these steps include Competency Mapping, Preparing Training Calendar, taking approvals from Management for conducting the training programs, nominating the right employees for the right training programs, venue setting, arranging faculties, collecting feedback for each program from the employees, efficiency evaluation to check whether the training was efficient enough for the employee or not, etc. This completely comprises of Training and Development functions or the Learning and Development Functions of the HR Department. There are also other training programs which have to be coordinated by Human Resource Department which includes specific job training, internships, live lectures and training to improve employee’s communication skills, technical knowledge, etc as and when needed or as per the requirement suggested by any respective Head of the Department.
