[SHORTENED TITLE UP TO 50 CHARACTERS] 2 After gaining a new CEO, Meg Whitman, HP put forth extreme efforts to grow by refurbishing and resurrecting the reputation that they had in technology excellence. This would involve handling the employees as an asset instead of as a separate entity. Rethinking the process and putting HP's Tracy Keogh in charge of managing talent the HP University was created. "Keogh's approach is to align training activities that bring employees up to speed in their current jobs with development efforts that prepare employees to fill vacancies expected to arise in the future",(Noe, Hollenbeck, Gerhart, & Wright, 2015). The aspects of HP University that link the organizational need to training are the individual colleges that exist in the HP University that focus on different parts of the company as a whole. It has a course catalog just like any other college and a portal where information can be gathered and allows the ability to sign up for any training. In doing this they ensured that not only did they train the training staff but that the training staff was able to train the managers of the business. In a study done to determine the effectiveness of this type of training done on corporate levels it was determined that, “a positive linear relationship between the number of corporate university training courses completed and job performance", (Morin & Renaud, 2004).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
