For many of our clients, this is not only the start of a new calendar year but also the start of a new budget year. And while some organizations are rebuilding their investment in people development, others have budget line items that are still woefully lean for the kind of professional and leadership development necessary to increase employee engagement and retention.
In response to the need to find ways to stretch Training & Development budget dollars and creatively offer development opportunities for employees, we published the attached article – Professional Development on a Shoestring – which offers ideas for professional development experiences that you can implement on your own or with minimal resources.
We hope you enjoy the article, find ideas that can work for you, and share back with our community your tips for providing professional development on a shoestring. As we say in Step 10 of the article, “Now is the time to share ideas.” Please comment and add your ideas to the discussion.
All the best,
Lisa and Robyn
