“See you in September
See you when the summer's through”
- The Happenings
Summer is not quite over yet but it is definitely September.
September…back to school for kids; back to class for employees.
It is nice to see the kids returning to “in-school” learning. And while we continue to offer virtual training, it's nice to see so many of our MCE clients requesting face-to-face training for their employees. We are happy to accommodate either way. The important thing is that employees are given the opportunity to learn.
Did you know, that according to Mark C. Perna, a Forbes Magazine contributor,
“76% of employees are more likely to stay with a company that offers continuous training?” Other studies show the figure as high as 93%. Professional development has always been known as a retention factor. It is even more critical in today’s “post-covid” and “great resignation” world.
Continuous professional development not only boosts retention, but it also increases employee confidence in themselves which directly improves their ability to deal with challenging situations and people. As a result, customer service and productivity also increase.
