The paper "Rural Human Resource Development Influence Factors and the Policies Response by Jian and Jiang" is a delightful example of an article on human resources. Jian and Jiang authored the article that the International Business & Management journal published on August 31. The authors aimed to develop an understanding of factors that affect rural human resource development and policy measures to the factors in Chongqing. The study used probability-sampling approaches for sample selection and recruited participants from 23 villages. Questionnaires were then used for data collection from a total of 750 research participants but 30 participants did not respond while 20 of the returned questionnaires were not valid.
The considered sample was balanced with respect to age and gender and quantitative data analysis software was used to analyze the data. Institutional factors to rural human resource development identified loss of rural talents as young people, specially trained people, move from rural areas. Further, the government plays a minimal role in ensuring health security. Direct help to farmers has significant benefits while free education policy has not benefited people in the rural setup.
Even though the government has agencies and personnel for rural human resource development, the effectiveness of such agencies is just average. Rural residents also lack training and awareness that the government should provide to them and they believe that the government’ s performance in human resource development is poor. The participants, however, reported appreciation of education and their willingness to try new skills even though the government’ s investments in human capital remain poor. Identified challenges to rural human resource development including a single mode of income, urbanization, and the labor market.
The research identifies changes in the government’ s approach to human resource development, awareness creation on potentials, and facilitated outflow of labor (Jian and Jiang, 106- 111).
