With the support of leadership and a human resources department that assists employees with reaching their professional goals, an employee development plan can improve your employees’ professional expertise and prepare them for the next career move. The training section of a human resources department is usually responsible for employee training and development. However, the employee’s department manager should also play a role in constructing an employee development plan. There are a number of different employee development plans. The right one depends on the employee’s current position, aptitude, performance and professional goals.

Performance-Based Employee Development Plan

A performance-based employee development plan uses the annual performance appraisal to review previous accomplishments, capabilities and establish goals for the next year. These goals can be solely work-related such as increasing productivity, or the goals could be designed to improve the employee’s skills or education. For example, when a department manager instructs her employee to complete two continuing education classes in the next 12 months, that is a goal that can improve the employee’s skills to prepare him for future roles within the company. Another way to construct a goal from the annual performance plan is to build upon the skills the employee already has to challenge him for the next step in his career.

Management By Objectives Employee Development Plan

Management by objectives-called MBOs-are very structured plans that identify objectives, steps to achieve the objectives, measure progress at select intervals and note completion of intermediate achievements. MBOs also contain detailed information about other employees' talents that are necessary for completing the objectives. When more than one employee is included on an MBO, the percentage of work for which that employee is responsible for is generally noted. Large organizations are known to utilize MBOs because of work teams assigned to similar projects. MBOs provide the type of format and structure necessary to track individual and team efforts.
