What is Professional Development?
Professional Development is the method of improving and growing the abilities of your staff through specialised training and education that’s primary goal is to increase your staff’s performance in the workplace.
Not only does Professional Development help your staff’s performance but it will also increase their moral and create a balanced, happy atmosphere and once again add value to your business.

Wondering why you have a large staff turnover?
Still not convinced that Professional Development will work for you? Well let’s take a quick look at the following results (and facts).
Research shows that there is a 10% decrease in Job satisfaction when professional development training has not been conducted.
This unhappy 10% will likely look for positions in other companies elsewhere.
Furthermore 40% of employees who receive poor job training leave their positions within the first year.
As you can see from the above, there is no denying that there is a clear benefit to investing time and money into Professional Development as it can drastically increase staff retention and reduce the need to constantly find new members of the team.
It is also critical when conducting training that the quality and delivery is of the highest standard.
Who is Professional Development for?
This is very much an open book as Professional Development is applicable to almost every type of business. If your company hires staff then professional development training can be applied.
