The benefits and value of training and professional development act like a domino effect- leaders feel competent and can efficiently manage employee performance. Happy and skilled workers create job satisfaction and commitment and, further, retention. Workforce improvement and engagement impact the overall productivity of an organization. This month, EOD encourages you to explore your employee development opportunities.
What is Employee Development?

What are the Benefits of Employee Development?
Organizational Benefits: Organizations that have an engaged workforce see 41% lower absenteeism rates and 17% higher productivity, according to a Gallup study.
Employee Benefits: Most importantly, employees reap the benefits of leadership opportunities, empowerment and increased workplace engagement.
Manager and Supervisor Benefits: Managers and supervisors have the opportunity to train future leaders and build a happier, more engaged team.
EOD encourages supervisors and leadership to work with their employees to develop a training plan and allow for the time and opportunity to complete employee development goals. Everyone should have the opportunity for employee development, no matter their education level, job title, or years of experience.
EOD offers many excellent employee development opportunities including Career Pathways and ULead, as well as virtual courses (such as the one below), and one-on-one coaching to help employees determine their professional development needs. Contact EOD at EOD@unm.edu for more information.
