Investment in Employees in Key to Business Success

In today’s competitive environment, companies who can attract, develop and retain great employees are at an advantage. However, creating an environment that makes this possible is becoming increasingly challenging for organizations and their leaders.

One proven strategy linked to successful companies is the investment in employee development through training.

Employees today no longer view training as a perk but an expectation. According to LinkedIn’s 2018 Workforce Learning Report, a whopping 94 percent of employees admitted they would stay at a company longer if it invested in their careers.

Another study conducted by the Association for Talent Development (ATD) found that companies who invested in formalized training experienced a 24 percent higher profit margin than those who did not. Training results improved productivity, employee engagement and retention.

Ultimately, investing in employee development is vital to success no matter the industry or company size. The University of North Georgia (UNG) understands this priority and is well-positioned to be a trusted training and development partner. A wide variety of courses are available including one-day seminars, certificate programs, online courses, and customized corporate training solutions. UNG partners with subject-matter experts to teach courses, which include the most current industry trends and best practices.

In the same LinkedIn report, employees said the No. 1 reason they held back from extra learning is because of a lack time. UNG recognizes that allocating time to training is no easy task. Courses are designed specifically for working professionals who require flexibility and real-world knowledge. This approach helps employees fit training into their schedules, and companies realize a quicker return on their investment.
