HR Training and Development

Human Resources-Training and Development strives to provide training programs to empower employees and improve university processes.  Our methods of training includes a consultation approach to support the needs of employees and UA Little Rock aimed at maximizing performance by providing in person, online, and blended training options.

Training helps employees learn specific knowledge or skills to improve performance in their current roles. The goal is to help our employees become better workers and to equip them with the skills they need to manage themselves and their teams.

Development is more expansive and focuses on employee growth and future performance.
