Definitions of HRD: Key Concepts from a National and International Context
Posted on 10 December 2012 by Mohd Afiq Bin Rusly ()

Numerous attempts to define human resource development (HRD) by academics, researchers and practitioners are proving that this concept is confusing and elusive. The purpose of this paper is to analyse definitions of HRD on the basis of key concepts of evolving HRD, HRD from a national context and international HRD. This paper is based on data and information gathered through a review of targeted literature on HRD. Providing a single definition of HRD may not be feasible or practical. It is suggested that HRD be defined at three levels, namely: general (macro-level), national (micro-level) and international (global level).
