Training and Talent Development — How I/O and HR Partner

Training and Talent Development — How I/O and HR Partner

Visit the Web site for the Society for I/O Psychology (linked in the Resources). Particularly, read the page SHRM and SIOP Mission Focused: Serving HR and I-O Professionals.
Consider these common goals of these two associations, and then review the SHRM-SIOP White Paper Series “https://www.td.org/” to see how these two professional organizations have partnered in a practical way.
In your discussion, first address the collaboration between SIOP and SHRM and what impact this partnership has on an HR department in an organization with which you are familiar. Then, focus specifically on the topic of Talent Development, choose one white paper to summarize and share with the class. Why is it important that training evaluation methods are grounded in evidence-based research?
