One response to “Influencing Your Boss”

  1. A Human Resource Development (HRD) professional can utilize the knowledge and experiences of long-tenured employees (Subject Matter Experts) when designing training for new recruits. If given new challenges and opportunities, long-tenured employees can be a company’s greatest assets for many years to come. An HRD professional must realize that as human beings, the needs of seasoned employees are constantly changing. If left unchallenged, the employee becomes unhappy with himself and therefore unhappy with the company at which he or she is employed. HRD professionals must perform an analysis of the employee as a learner (learner analysis) to identify, design, and implement new training to challenge the employee so the cycle can begin anew. The employees who are in search or a challenge or promotion rather than just a pay raise are the employees who are valuable to the company throughout their careers.
