Evaluating the Impact of Human Resource Development.
These four papers are from a symposium on evaluating the impact of human resource development (HRD). "Pre-Job Training and the Earnings of High-Tech Employees in Taiwan" (Tung-Chun Huang) reports on a study that concludes that public training programs have no impact on participants' earnings in later jobs, but participation in private training programs does have a significantly positive effect on post-job earnings. "Training Effectiveness and Employee Output--A Regression Model Based on Training Transfer and Organization Development Variables" (Constantine Kontoghiorghes) discusses a study of the extent to which an organization benefits from its training investments, which found that stakeholder involvement, person analysis, and the training transfer climate were the most important predictors of employee output. "Only Time Will Tell: Strengthening the Link Between HRD and Firm Performance" (Laurie J. Bassi, Mark E. Van Buren) reports cross-sectional analyses of second-round data on training investments, practices, and outcomes that point to a link between investments in human capital and organizational measures of performance; longitudinal analyses strengthen this finding by demonstrating that 1996 human capital investments predict 1997 organizational performance. "Contemporary Approaches to Return on Investment (ROI) from Training" (Paul E. Brauchle, William H. Koenecke) describes methods of assessing behavior change and the value of that change and describes methods of calculating and using ROI. (YLB)
