Personal development management in Human Resources and People Management
BVOP Community Reviews
  1. Gabriele Schröder, BVOP Human Resources Manager

    Personal development should be the core concern of all human resources departments in modern companies. The strongest motivating power of employees is their personal development.

    It's not the salary or the projects they are currently working on. Modern people think about their future. They are not focused on the present.

    Many human resource professionals ignore this fact. Or they are not even aware of these elemental needs of people.

    Note how many aspects of the organization, teams, and projects can be influenced positively by the personal development of employees if their organization offers it.

    In job advertisements, businesses regularly highlight good opportunities for personal and professional development. When we start working in the company, we begin to see that there is neither personal nor professional development. The years go by and we are at the same level as we started working in the company. I'm thinking about the topic and for the last 5 years it turns out I have not developed at all. The only party that benefits employer-employee relationships is the employer. Usually, there is no time for training, no time for lectures, no resources for development. There is only a lot of work to do.
