Do you remember when you were brought on board with your current employer? I bet one of the ‘perks’ was a promise of training and development.
Truth is, beyond onboarding training, many organizations leave their employees in the lurch. Expectations are that they will learn on the job. Or have a manager that cares enough to ‘bring them along.”
But does this really happen?
A Gallup poll revealed 87% of millennials say that professional development and career growth are very important.
Another study reveals 68% of workers say that training and development is the most important company policy.
So, what systems do you have in place to support your workforce and help them to grow?
The cost of replacing an employee far supersedes the cost of training to promote the growth and development of current employees.
And companies who invest in employees enjoy a 24% higher profit margin than those who spend less.
