The scope of Human Resource Development at IIRD has widened in the last few years. It has moved on from a traditionally administrative function to a strategic one that recognizes the link between talented and engaged people and organizational success.
IIRD believes that empowerment of its client communities can be best achieved when the staff has the requisite orientation, skills and knowledge. A strong emphasis has always been laid on the capacity building of the in-house personnel. All cadres of staff have been trained in both their own specific work domain as also in other fields.
This has also affected the creation of a conducive environment within which collaboration can happen. This encompasses the two key premises of our work in IIRD and in effect encapsulates the creation of a strong, well spread, well knit, responsive and responsible voluntary sector in Rajasthan.
Establishing a facilitating environment wherein the “partnership” takes place in an environment of trust and mutual respect, has been the chief concern at IIRD. In order to achieve this, IIRD works by providing information and outreach support to the field representatives, including providing forums for interaction among different groups, providing professional support to field workers on a regular basis and organizing and making information available. Through Performance Management, delegation practices, succession planning and the entire approach to Corporate Governance at IIRD has seen a re-orientation, in tune with new trends in HRM.
