European Research Studies Journal, Volume XIII, Issue 1, 119-128, 2010
The Human Resources Development Survey (HRDS), which was carried out in the region of Korca (Albania), documented changes of the labour market demand and the occupational distribution of employees. This paper, based on the findings of the HRDS, reveals the broad trends in labour market developments at the enterprise level, current human resource development (HRD) practices and needs within enterprises, and suggests areas in which allocating resources to HRD would be most effective. The main findings in relation to four major questions are presented. The paper concludes with a summary of the findings in relation with the challenges of HRD.
