Part 2

Respond to classmates post (Jeronia Pugh (Jaye))

Hi everyone. My name is Jeronia, but I prefer to be called Jaye. I reside in South Carolina with my husband, 2 daughters, and 2 dogs. We are also parents to an angel son. I am a military veteran and also an HR Specialist. I am 4 courses away from graduating in September with my Bachelors in Business Admin. I have 14+ years of HR experience. Once I obtain my degree, I plan to study and test for the SHRM certification afterwards. My goal is to land a 6 figure HR job so that I can better take care of my family while also using the skills that I have obtained over the years.

Based on the scenario provided, two potential needs that are present within the company are as follows:

1) Lack of employee training and development: It appears that the employees in the company have not received adequate training and development opportunities to enhance their skills and knowledge. This can result in decreased productivity, low employee morale, and limited job satisfaction.

2) Encourage continuous learning: The company should encourage employees to engage in continuous learning and development beyond the training program. This can be achieved by providing access to online learning platforms, offering professional development opportunities, and supporting employees in pursuing relevant certifications or degrees.
