Since a larger company may have the resources to invest in a recognized training program to prepare for higher business standards such as succession planning, development of training program to maintain the highest quality, and employee management. Training plans allow organizations to identify what is needed for employee performance before training begins. The way organizations structure and organize their training affects the way employees experience the training, which influences the effectiveness of the training. An effective training program requires the use of a systematic training process (Ivancevich & Konopaske, 2013). An effective HRD plan would provide employees with opportunities and clear direction to increase their skills and advance their career in M&M. Developing a new HRD Plan The new HR department of M&M will manage the employees as business resources and assets. The HR department will recruit, hire, manage benefits as well as train and develop employees (Gomez-Mejia, Galkin & Cardy, 2001).

A strategy should incorporate hiring more employees, including new graduates, Hispanic and Kurdish community population, enabling M&M to meet its growing demand for product and sales. M&M should establish a culture within the sector not based on race, gender, or nationality but the performance of the individuals. Research shows that an organization's revenues and overall profitability are positively correlated with the amount of training it gives its employees (Belcourt et al., 2016). The new HRD plan would emphasize the new employee training programs, including orientation, job- specific training, and training for current employees which includes skill development and leadership training for management groups, training materials and the evaluation of the training programs. Employee Orientation Training Ivancevich and Konopaske (2013) state "Orientation is a type of training offered to new employees to help them adapt to their new jobs and employers." "Orientation is a planned introduction of new employees to their jobs, co-workers, and the organization" (Ivancevich & Konopaske, 2013). All new employees of M&M would require attending a one-day orientation training after their hire. HR personnel will instruct an in-class orientation session. Each
