A New Era for Career Development and HRD
Advances in Developing Human Resources
The problem and the solution. Career development (CD), long considered a primary function of HRD, has been eclipsed in recent years by changing employer—employee loyalties, increasing interest in portable careers, and the growing importance of subjective career goals. Instead of abandoning CD in the wake of such significant changes, HRD needs to review the evolving career landscape and respond to the diverse needs of individuals and systems. It is a new era for CD and HRD.
