The Importance of Professional Development

The Importance Of Professional Development

“The only thing worse than training employees and losing them is not training them and keeping them.” – Zig Ziglar

It is no secret that employees are a hugely important factor in the success of any organisation. In his recent article for Forbes, Kevin Lynch argues that employees are ‘the key to taking any organisation from the ordinary to the extraordinary’ and thus investing in their development is paramount to success.

Kevin Lynch is President and CEO at National Industries for the Blind in the USA and, like many other executives, has recognised the value of professional development for both companies and for employees. Lynch argues that there are four key ways to utilise professional development:

1.) Invest In Your Best Resource — Your Employees.
Employees are in a unique position when it comes to institutional knowledge and experience of the organisation they work for and can be a valuable resource in learning where the company can improve. Gaining feedback can help in the creation of a professional development plan that accurately responds to employee needs.

2.) Create An Environment For Employee Growth.
A combination of professional training and on the job learning experiences can help employees achieve their full potential and find professional fulfilment.

3.) Expand Employee Development As Part Of The Overall Culture.
Investing in professional development is a great way of showing employees you value them and creating a culture of learning.

4.) Remember Organizations Succeed When Employees Succeed.
In their 9th Global Project Management Survey, PMI found that organisations that prioritise the development of technical skills are 20% more like to complete projects on time and on budget, and meet original goals and business intent.

Knowing where to begin can be difficult.
