The Financial Value of Professional Education

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.

Professional development, continuing education, and company training can save many headaches within your team, and CEU360.com can help you accomplish your educational goals. With a straight forward pricing model that includes no startup costs, no maintenance fees, and no capital expense, CEU360.com is an affordable way to engage your team, and provide an appealing recruiting advantage.  CEU360.com provides over 400 hours of continuing education for Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech-Language Pathology, Athletic Training, and Massage Therapy professionals, and has the technology to rapidly produce new content for your specific needs.

Functional Pathways selected CEU360.com for its rapid development capabilities and ability to create white label content, empowering them to implement a customized learning solution for their staff quickly and inexpensively.

Functional Pathways has successfully delivered comprehensive therapy and rehabilitation services since 1995. They currently provide contract rehabilitation services in 15 states and employ over 1,600 therapists.

“As innovation is paramount to the success of Functional Pathways, we are thrilled to partner with CEU360.com to bring to our employees the most advanced system for earning CEUs” states Angel Knorr, Vice President of Recruiting. “As of March 4, 2013, we will be partnering with CEU360.com to offer online education, live corporate events and customized white label content to our employees”.

CEU360.com’s fully equipped, onsite production studio recently shifted into high gear to quickly and efficiently begin development on customized white label content for Functional Pathways. The first in-house filming session was completed in late February, with a launch of the full program to the team scheduled for early March. The initial round of filming included videos for new hire orientation, leadership training, executive messaging and industry compliance education. CEU360.com is also slated to produce and film Functional Pathways’ upcoming live symposium on the 18th and 19th of May.

“We are very excited to be building our own white label content which will provide up to 20 hours of training for all of our employees” Angel continues. “Functional Pathways is pleased to remain a leader in contract therapy services by partnering with CEU360.com, and we are eager to bring this much needed enhancement to our online university.”

Additionally, CEU360.com will provide Functional Pathway therapists with unfettered access to the existing catalog of continuing education courses, allowing them to not only comply with state licensing regulations but also to maintain professional association membership.

“The CEU360.com program provides a unique opportunity for Functional Pathways and other organizations to provide access to well over 300 hours of video based continuing education, and customized internal company training to their entire team. This benefit reduces or even eliminates the need for additional continuing education stipends, and is substantially less than the typical individual spends on annual professional development,” explains CEU360.com Chief Operations Officer, Shane Everett.
