Expanded Roles for HRD.
This document contains three papers from a symposium on expanded roles for human resource development (HRD). "The Roles of Consultants in Gainsharing Firms: Empirical Results" (Eunsang Cho, Gary N. McLean) reports findings that consultants are moderately involved at the separation, preparation, evaluation, and design stages and have low involvement at the implementation stage. Organizational performance and compensation-related goal categories and suggestions, compensation, psychological ownership, internal customer, and organizational performance-related outcomes are significantly higher when consultants are used. "A Corporate University: An Initial Study" (Tim L. Wentling, Libin Wang, Ghazala Ovaice, Christopher Bober, Amanda Schulze) describes the programs, training methodologies, clientele, and staff of corporate universities. "Guiding Principles of Workforce Development (WFD)" (Reid A. Bates) describes a set of 10 principles, including the following: a WFD system provides an integrated, comprehensive education and training system; is built on the principle of partnership; is market-oriented; and is responsive to economic and social goals of community and to individuals.
