Complete the Hospital Application assignment prior to beginning this assignment.
Based on the Hospital Application assignment, you have determined that a new professional development program needs to be created for existing employees.
The purpose of this assignment is to develop an expanded outline or blueprint for a new professional training and skill development program for existing employees and to explain how the program can be used to motivate and retain quality employees. Consider how the organization leverages workforce diversity to encourage employees to collaborate and apply their unique talents.
Continuing in the role of the hospital administrator from the Hospital Care Application assignment, you are required to create a blueprint or an expanded outline of the professional development program for the director of human resources (your supervisor). As a portion of this assignment, create an agenda for training that clearly states the topic being covered, the presenter, the location, and the time block in the overall agenda: a training schedule that includes the necessary preparation needed to provide the training (who, what, when, where, why, and how), as well as a description of the practice training activities and any media or handouts you will provide.
Additionally, using what you have learned from the assigned readings and your own research, expand the information presented in the training agenda with paragraphs that describe the following elements:
- The focus of the program, which could include a combination of the following: learning new skills, additional certifications, licensure, and cross-training for other areas not usually assigned (as an introduction before the agenda).
- Description of written materials, such as handouts, to be provided during the training (after the agenda).
- A description of at least one computer-, Web-, or DVD-based training element that will be used in the program, including consideration of the idea that staff may have varying levels of technology readiness (after the agenda).
- Explanation of how organizations leverage workforce diversity (team members with different skill sets or credentials) and describe the benefits of diverse knowledge, skills, and expertise among team members (as a conclusion).
