THE EMPLOYEE DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM

THE PAPER CONSISTS OF A BRIEF REVIEW OF SOME BEHAVIORAL SCIENCE FINDINGS ON THE MOTIVATION OF EMPLOYEES AND THE DESCIPRION OF A SYSTEM FOR EMPLOYEE DEVELOPMENT. THE DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM CONSISTS OF THREE BASIC ACTIVITIES: DELEGATION OF AUTHORITY, OPPORTUNITY TO PERFORM, AND EVALUATION. THE FINAL PART OF THE PAPER CONTAINS A REVIEW OF THE USE OF THE SYSTEM IN THE WISCONSIN DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION. EACH OF THE THREE BASIC ACTIVITIES IS MADE UP OF STEPS TO BE FOLLOWED IN ACCOMPLISHING THESE ACTIVITIES. DELEGATION IS DIVIDED INTO DEFINING JOB RESPONSIBILITIES, DEFINING WORK OBJECTIVES, AND REVIEWING THE REQUIRED RESOURCES. THE OPPORTUNITY TO PERFORM IS MADE UP OF THE EMPLOYEE PERFORMING THE JOB WHILE THE SUPERVISOR OBSERVES, ASSISTS, COACHES, AND TRAINS HIM. THE EVALUATION PROCESS CONSISTS OF THE EMPLOYEE REPORTING PROGRESS, THE SUPERVISOR CHECKING PROGRESS, AND THE EMPLOYEE AND SUPERVISOR MEASURING PROGRESS AGAINST OBJECTIVES.
