HR development for HVACR Industry
By Major(R)Khalid Nasr
Human Resource Development had remained a neglected area in Pakistan both in Public & Private Sectors. Present Government is taking some positive steps in this field. Business success in Pakistan is measured in terms of profitability & tangible assets of a business. This paradigm has now shifted to Quality of Human Resource. It is the quality of Human Resource that will determine chances of success or failure in business. Human Resource Development means investing in your people, training them for their best performance in their present job and developing them for their future roles. As competition is becoming more intense, the quality of Human Resource is becoming increasingly important. Companies are forced to develop human resources for their economic survival. Nations develop human resources for economic prosperity. Individuals develop themselves for better employability & progress.

Importance of HR Development for HVACR
HVACR is a very technical industry, which need a fully trained & developed workforce. It is, therefore, of utmost importance to develop the skills base & intellectual capital the organization requires as well as ensuring that the right quality of people are available to meet present & future needs. Technological innovations require training for affected employees. Competitive pressures are also changing the ways organizations operate and the skills that their employees need. HVACR has to take a proactive approach towards the development of its Human Resource.
Total quality management implementation is as important in the training & development of HVACR Human Resource as it is for the products of HVACR because it is not only the gun but the man behind the gun is equally important for success / victory. HR Development is concerned with the provision of learning, development & training opportunities in order to improve individual, team and organizational performance.

Organizational Development is a planned & calculated attempt to change the beliefs, attitudes and structure of an organization to adapt to new technologies and market demands in a global competition.
The Organizational Development Techniques / Approaches for HVACR Industry are the following three:
1. Survey Feedback: Organization members are interviewed or a questionnaire is circulated to get their views on the organizational procedures & processes and any change desired by them.
2. Team Building: It focuses on goal setting, interpersonal relations and role analysis.

The real need of today and the future have changed for developing learned managers to learning managers. The model manager is a multiplier manager who brings in synergy in the team thus enhancing & multiplying the outcome / productivity. The learning manager of today stresses participative learning and relates personal knowledge & skill to the projected tomorrow. To learn something new, we have to unlearn certain things that demand a proper attitude towards learning.
The training & development programs simply make a person aware of the growth possibilities and encourage self- help. The urge to acquire knowledge & skill must be strong within the individual that requires proper motivation.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
