HR Training Manager
March 04, 2008
The field of training and development (T&D) has changed substantially over the last decade. In the old days, trainers were expected to teach employees how to do their jobs. Now, training professionals are responsible for building environments that embrace learning. Management and leadership development is also an important part of the job.
In some of the more forward-thinking companies, T&D professionals may be involved in designing distance learning programs as well as on-site, computer-based training programs. Be aware that when the economy slows down, training budgets are among the first things to go. Make yourself recession-proof by combining a T&D background with another area of HR.
