Career Development: To the Job you Desire and Beyond!

“Success in business requires training and discipline and hard work. But if you’re not frightened by these things, the opportunities are just as great today as they ever were.” – David Rockefeller

Let’s expand on this quote for just a moment. Professional development within the corporate business sector is so important for both employees and employers! The most influential and well-managed companies invest in employee career development programs. They emphasize a vision that supports the connection between organizational success and employee career development. Due to this over pouring amount of support, employees are more apt to request professional development training in conjunction with their performance reviews. This is a great way to scale potential career advancement with the degree of knowledge an employee has gained throughout the year. Employees no longer have to leave a company in order to grow professionally; but for both the organization and employees to benefit from a professional development program, they must partner to share in its success.
Even during good times, organizations can not afford the costs and missed opportunities created by high staff turnover or low morale. Employee retention is high on the list of desired outcomes for organizations to establish a career development program. In today’s unpredictable economy, companies need employees to perform the best they can. Having a professional development training program available for employees would likely ensure that their best employees will remain with that organization. An effective professional development curriculum will ensure organizations have the people they need with the skills and competency necessary for achieving strategic organizational goals.
Providing positive, practical and beneficial career development opportunities to employees is one of the most cost-effective ways to achieve the following for your organization:
During your next performance evaluation, suggest a couple training classes that you would like to take…your managers response may surprise you with an astounding ‘YES, professional development courses are always approved!’ Your position (and resume) should continue to show that you have the skills you need for the job you desire!
