Learning and development is essential for employee personal and professional growth and ensures staff can continue performing alongside business changes, visions and goals.

Learning and development often forms part of a talent management strategy, with HR responsible for identifying skill gaps, training requirements and career development needs. This can be done through SMART objectives, one-to-one meetings and detailed conversations with managers and business leaders.

Halian understands the skills and experience required for individuals to thrive within this area. We vet candidates in great detail, looking at qualifications, experience and soft skills.

We appreciate successful HR candidates need to have clear knowledge and understanding of a business organisation structure, design and development. They need to be assured of managing budgets and have a clear understanding of training ROI to deliver cost-effective solutions.

Furthermore, HR professionals need to have the following attributes:

  • Confident supervising training staff
  • Organisational and project management skills
  • Strategic and critical-thinking skills
  • Data-driven decision making and analysis skills

The world is evolving at pace, e-learning is becoming much more popular and technology is changing skill requirements across a wealth of industries. HR learning and development professionals need to have strong change management skills, stay up to date with the latest technology developments and be computer savvy.

Strong communication – along with the skills above – allow individuals to transform
