[Excerpt] Human Resource Development Programs (HRDP) consist of rotations designed to develop human resources talent. These programs highly emphasize development, yet participants’ engagement and impact should not be overlooked. Getting the right balance of engagement and development is essential for both the participant and the business. Although there is extensive research and publication surrounding training and development, HRDP-specific work is less common. Given this, broader research on rotational programs and career development may be adopted for HRDP considerations.
