The Importance of Professional Development

Professional development programs improve employees’ knowledge, skill sets and job satisfaction, resulting in higher employee retention. Many employers shy away from professional development programs, thinking they are unnecessary. However, there are several ways these programs can benefit not just your employees, but also your operations.  Here are some reasons to consider offering professional development programs:
  • Employee knowledge and advancement
  • Employee job satisfaction
  • Employee retention
The availability of both informal and formal professional development opportunities is imperative in today’s modern workforce. Webinars are examples of informal learning that gives the participant total control over when they seek assistance. Informal, combined with formal training, is most impactful.

SDAHO has several opportunities for informal professional development and training through live and on-demand sessions. To view the entire library of trainings, click here.
