Webinar: The ROI of Professional Development


Return on investment (ROI) is one of the most widely used calculations to prove the profitability of an investment. While proving ROI is easy in some aspects of business (example: a software purchase), other times, the ROI can be a little bit harder to calculate (example: professional development).

According to Gallup’s 2017 “State of the American Workplace,” only 33% of employees are engaged at work – meaning, they love their jobs and try to make their companies better every day. But – and this is scary – a whopping 51% of employees are not engaged; they’re just going through the motions.

This lack of attention can seriously affect an organization’s success. So, what can be done?

Fortunately, employee engagement programs can increase an organization’s profits. Happy employees equal productive employees. And providing professional development opportunities is a part of that. In this webinar, Tom Hileman and Valerie Kovacs from First Federal Lakewood will touch on why professional development is important, types of programs and how to get started.
