If the cost of professional education and employee training programs causes you to cringe – you’re not alone. Employee training or professional education programs can be costly, but investing in high quality training and professional education doesn’t have to break the bank, and it is one of the smartest decisions you can make. Corporate professional education programs can provide recruitment advantages, reduce turnover, and reduce operating costs.
Recruitment Advantage? Check!
With an average of 33.6% increase in job growth over the next 10 years expected among therapy professionals, it will be imperative for employers to remain competitive to attract and retain therapy professionals.
Over the next few years providing professional education will become less of a differentiator than a requirement among healthcare providers looking to be competitive and increase employee retention, so it becomes necessary that your educational program be flexible to accomodate specialized training and professional education. In order to maintain your differentiator it will be necessary to both partner with a leading provider of continuing and professional education, and to be capable to develop your own company training. The CEU360.com program allows for both through our available robust continuing education catalog, and our ability to rapidly create 100% white label, customized course materials for your university or professional development program.
Less Turnover? Yep!
Providing engaging and effective training to produce a well trained team will make a happier team. According to a 2010 Louis Harris and Associates poll, only 12% of employees with access to excellent training programs planned to leave, opposed to 41% whose employer provided poor training opportunities. So, better training results in a two-thirds higher retention rate!
In today’s age with more information coming at our employees than ever before, it is almost impossible to expect employees to learn by osmosis, without structured learning tools; the information onslaught is just too overwhelming. Creating a structured, measurable employee professional education program provides employees the tools they need to learn, and be content in growing within their current company rather than seeking greener pastures. And, as we saw earlier, once we’ve attained those coveted therapy professionals, we need to keep them learning to keep them happy, and engaged.
Decrease Costs? We can help with that.
For the healthcare world, proper training is non-negotiable. Continuing education is a mandated requirement for most healthcare professionals, and with ever changing complex documentation and reporting guidelines, proper on-the-job training can mean the difference in profitability. Highly trained, focused employees produce greater results, and are less likely to make costly mistakes. New hires experience a shorter ramp-up time if they are properly trained from the get-go, rather than trained “on-the-floor”, and well trained employees tend to be more engaged and stick around for the long haul, reducing turnover expense.
