Human Resource Development (HRD)
is an approach to development focused on individual and
In the book, What CEOs
expect from Corporate Training, scholars defined HRD as:
The Need for HRD
The integrated use of training and development,
organizational development, and career development to improve
individual, group, and organizational effectiveness. This
definition expressed the need to expand the field from the
application of isolated solutions (such as training) to
facilitating organizational change and improving in the
performance of the entire organization." (Rothwell, Lindholm &
Wallick, 2003, p.140)
In a 21st century marketplace, we see rapid advancements in globalization and technology.
In the midst of this constant change lies your organization's resolute need to be effective.
Serenity's HRD Solutions
At the heart of this need is the
understanding that human capital is our greatest asset and that implementing a strong HRD process is no longer an option, but a requirement.
In a strong HRD system, training and development are focused on both the individual and the organization. Training and development are integrated at all levels
of the organization to facilitate and produce organization-wide change and improvement. A strong HRD system also recognizes that what occurs before and after
training is an integral part of the end result.
In an economic climate of fierce competition, organizations cannot afford to invest finite resources in the ineffective development of human capital.
Likewise, organizations can no longer afford to view human resources as costs, but as capital to develop and maximize organizational potential.

Our proven approach recognizes that Effective HRD is:
- Designed to meet your needs.
Pre-packaged, general, or ad-hoc training fails to meet the true and underlying needs of your organization.
Our commitment to you is to carefully-customize a solution that meets your needs at the individual, group, and organizational level.
- Focused on Outcome and Results.
Training focused on your desired outcome and results prevents training efforts that end at the point of training delivery
and fail to emphasize action, implementation and application. Imagine a solution that properly aligns your resources with your desired ROI. That’s Serenity Solutions.
- Linked to what takes place before and after training delivery.
Effective training is based on a comprehensive
approach illustrated in the PTLA

- Integrated with goals, strategic vision, and resources.
An integrated approach to training means your resources are invested in a solution that furthers your company’s mission,
vision and values while maintaining strategic alignment to resources.
- A two-way communication.
Training that is simply “delivered” in a one-way communication approach can be disconnected from your company’s true needs.
With a two-way communication approach, trainees feel an integrated part of the process, building engagement, effectiveness, and ultimately,
