Introduction
Who are HR Professionals? What knowledge, skills and behaviour are required of them?
HR professionals are the people who are responsible for recruiting people and interviewing them before the possible recruitments. The screeni
ngs of the talents within the organisation and the identification of employee potential is also a great responsibility of the HR professionals. They are known for deterring the job role for the candidates. HR professionals are very important because they strengthen the base of the organisation by handling human resources. The employee relation, Employee training, payroll and the other beneficial factors are also served by the HR team of an organisation (Simões et al. 2019). They have a huge knowledge about human resources and their demands within the organisation and that is the reason why they act accordingly to the trends of the employee activity. They are skilled in identifying the hidden talents and potential of the employees and they are important because they prepare the new employees for handling the new job criteria’s of the organisation.
What do you understand by a Skills Audit? What role does it play in the personal and professional development of an employee?
The skills audit is done on a monthly or yearly basis. That is the reason why through the skills audit the organisation can identify the different pitfalls and gaps in the skills they have within the environment. The skill gap can lead to different types of losses for the organisation and that is the reason why identifying the skill gaps soon is very important for the organisation itself. In order to fill in the skills gap, the employees are given training and the other help so that they can acquire more knowledge and lessons about the different criteria’s of the work (Thakhathi and Kanyane, 2019). As they are learning more this helps in their professional development. The professional development in the career of a person can also help in the upliftment of the living slandered. Thus the personal development can also be conferred through the skills audit.
What is a Personal SWOT Analysis?
Personal SWOT analysis is very important to analyse the capability and performance measures of employees. The personal swot analysis will help an employee to understand the scopes of improvements. Through this tool, the person can also identify the strengths and opportunities which the person can use at the time of need (O'Connell, 2020). Thus they can make very good use of the inner strengths and opportunities which will lead them to achieve professional development within a certain organisation. For understanding the weaknesses and for utilising the strengths it is very important to conduct a personal swot analysis on a timely basis.
What do you understand by CPD?
CPD stands for continuing professional development. Development cannot be a one-time process. The employees need to understand the fact that the different processes within the organisation are continuously upgrading. That is the reason why there are always new things to learn and new things to do within an organisation. To be able to balance all these new things it is very important to go through a gradual development to process (Phadermrod, Crowder and Wills, 2019). Otherwise, the employees cannot cope up with the new process immediately or soon enough. For that CPD is a very important tool that makes the employees upgraded about the different types of changes in the surrounding situation and it also prepares them to undergo different changes in the organisational environment.
What is a Personal Developmental Plan?
Personal development plan is a strategy through which the individuals within an organisation can identify their weaknesses and the different scopes through which they can upgrade themselves. The set of personal development plan has various steps and action plans which are needed to achieve the goals set by the employees personally for their professional development. The personal development plan is very important for the different employees because it helps them to understand the opportunities for themselves and in accordance with that, they can set their goals and also enable themselves for taking better opportunities in the organisational platform (Grit, 2019). The personal development plan is very important for both the personal and professional development of the employees.
Why is it important to evaluate and reflect on a PDP?
It is very important to develop a personal development plan because it helps in the identification of different weaknesses. According to that, the goals can be developed and it will also help the employers to do better in their job roles within the organisation (Law, 2020). That is the reason why the personal development plan is important for both the employees and the organisation.
