Cristiana Parisi, Paola Rossi
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2016.64068
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to develop a Human Capital Report focused on the competency profile of the key employees. Employing the case study of Biomedical Branch of University of Florence, we have designed a strategy map centred on key stakeholders: students, university, didactic and research centres, businesses. Furthermore, we have designed a model for the management of human resources, integrating two different approaches: individual and organic. On the basis of this model, semi-structured interview was carried out to obtain rich data on the current competences of key employees, divided in three personal characteristics for each strategic theme: knowledge, skills, aptitudes. The results of our analysis show where the competences of the key personnel are lacking, the strategic initiatives to take in the future, and the lead indicators to use for measure the effects of the initiatives. This study contributes to the previous literature, describing how university institutes can measure the human capital readiness.
A Brief Study on the Problems and Development Countermeasures of China’s International Trade Talents Training  [PDF]
Ruichao Zhang, Hongshan Liu, Jiajing Zhang
Modern Economy (ME) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/me.2017.812104
Abstract: Since the 1990s, it gradually becomes a new approach in the field of international economics to study trade activities from the perspective of human resources. Many scholars believe that the gap of income inequality between two countries increasing or decreasing depends on the trade pattern between the two countries, but in the final analysis, it depends on the state of human capital allocation in both countries. Therefore, human resources are of great significance to the international trade. With China’s opening-up policy to the outside world becoming deeper and deeper, there is an increasing demand for international trade talents, and the skilled talents in international economic and trade fields have become scarce talents. However, at present, many universities’ international trade graduates find it difficult to get employed, and companies just lack talents in that fields. The main reason for this phenomenon is that the international trade talents trained in colleges and universities are out of touch with the social needs, which caused the phenomenon that graduates majored in international trade can’t be used by companies and companies lack talents in the field of international trade but dare not employ the graduates. To study this phenomenon, this paper finds that the teaching objective is not clear in colleges and universities; most colleges and universities pay much attention to theoretical teaching instead of practical teaching and lack teacher allocation. What’s more, the curriculum is not reasonable enough. So the colleges and universities should take some measures; they should cultivate talents to be familiar with international business processes and specific operations, international trade negotiation and communication skills, and to be familiar with international trade laws and practices. They also should guide students to get some professional

Augusto Renato Pérez Mayo, Fernando Romero Torres, Nohemí Roque Nieto
Open Journal of Business and Management (OJBM) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojbm.2018.63051
This article presents the results of the level of motivation and its impact on the performance of administrative workers of a university organization in the State of Morelos. Motivation is the impulses that give intensity, direction and effort to a person to achieve a goal. These impulses are affected by needs and desires, by skills, work knowledge, disposition, traits, emotions, moods, beliefs and values in the context of work, and determine behavior and performance. The study is quantitative-descriptive, field-based, and is supported theoretically under the guidance of Maslow, McGregor, Herzberg, McClelland, Vroom and of course the theory of Motivational and Hygiene Factors of Herzberg. They applied a total of 67 surveys. We conclude that the workers have a degree of dissatisfaction with regard to working conditions: lack of tools, resources and adequate equipment to carry out their work, facilities constantly adapted to carry out the work and not well distributed physically to work efficiently, ventilation conditions, cleanliness, poor hygiene, lighting and comfort.

Shih-Chien Chien
Technology and Investment (TI) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ti.2012.34030
Abstract: The purpose of this article is to summarize and integrate the articles appearing in this special issue within the unique technology development (TD) and human resources (HR) of Southeast Asian countries. This paper examines how the synergy between TD and HR can lead to improved national economic performance. We proposed that better HR exploitation can sustain the capabilities of TD. Thus, the detail indexes are first evaluated with each category, which constructs the basic meanings of TD and HR. Consequently, the contexts of TD are clustered by different patterns with similar attributes in each nation. Each pattern can monitor the performance of HR in specific TD pattern. In this empirical study, we discover that the leading three countries (Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand) have a strong positive rank correlation between TD and HR; In contrast, the rest of countries are poor rank correlation with regard to the two categories. These results mention that the level of TD, which depends on HR exploitation, is an important indicator of technological capability and even a proof of economic growth. We also examine the TD policies with strategic grid and offer a better road path of TD to follow, not only for those type countries to retune their policy, but also to parallel development in HR areas—such as the level of education upgrading, labor force environment improving, man power utilizing. Finally, Southeast Asian countries should calibrate feasible HR when use it to elaborate TD.

American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2016.62018
Abstract: The aim of the current study is to explore the current management and practices for Training Needs Assessment (TNA) process at Assir General Educational Directorate (AGED) in Abha, Saudi Arabia. It aims also to shed the light on the most important concerns, problems, and challenges that face Training and Development (T & D) processes and programs and to propose practical suggestions and recommendations to improve TNA process and practices and overcome T & D problems and challenges in AGED. The study adopted the quantitative deductive approach through a survey research strategy. A self-administrated questionnaire which was constructed based on previous studies was the main data collection method used to capture the data from almost all the administrative female supervisors (70) working at AGED. The findings of this study show that: in spite of the importance of identifying and assessing training needs of individuals, the majority of the study participants have never identified training needs for the people that they supervise. They do not rely on systematic techniques when identifying trainees; however, they use their own subjective manners. Moving individuals from one work place to another; low morale of individuals; students’ dissatisfaction; increasing complains and lack of skills were among the most important indicators of training needs. Lectures, guidance and supervision, group discussions and practical show were the most common T & D techniques and used methods. Main challenges of T & D were: the inability to identify training needs, insufficient numbers of qualified training centers, lack of motivation to participate in T & D because of the lack of support from the external environment such as (family, friends, etc.) and lack of time and budget to support the training processes. The study has made significant contributions to the body of knowledge at academic and practical levels and has come up with good recommendations to improve management of TNA, which will affect the effectiveness of T & D processes and programs in AGED; all were presented in the final chapter of this dissertation.
