The objective of Human Resource Development is to provide programs which orient, train, and develop the employees of the University by improving the skills, knowledge, abilities, and competencies necessary for individual and organizational efficiency and productivity as well as personal career growth.
While career development and job skills acquisition after employment are the joint responsibility of the employee and the employing unit, the University is obligated to provide a program of training and development which improves organizational effectiveness and productivity by enhancing the skills, knowledge, abilities, and competencies brought to the position by the employee and necessary for work-related success, individual growth, and career development.

Human Resource Development will provide such programs and make every effort to balance the needs of the individual and the needs, goals and objectives of Auburn University. Refer to section 7 of the Human Resources Policies and Procedures Manual for details.

Human Resource Development (HRD) will partner with your activity in a consulting capacity to address potential training needs involving performance, productivity, customer service, management of change, communication, teamwork, and process management. Through an analysis of structure and organization; processes, tools, and technology; people; and strategy and direction, HRD can help your unit to develop a training or non-training intervention designed specifically to meet the unit's needs. This could be customized training, tailored team-building exercises, or structural redesign  whatever solution best fits your situation.



The HRD Training Facility is located at the Auburn University Administrative Complex (1550 East Glenn Avenue).
