Education and industry partnerships are a powerful way of demonstrating your organization's investment in the personal and professional growth of employees. According to a LinkedIn Learning Workforce report, 93% of employees would stay at a company longer if they invested in their careers. Having an educational partner helps show your employees that you care about them and their professional development which in turn helps you to retain employees longer. Companies that offer professional development also have 34% higher retention rate and 15% greater engagement. Since 87% of Millennials said that professional development and career growth are very important, employers should offer training to entice and attract a larger talent pool.
According to the Huffington Post, companies that invest in employee training will reap a 24% higher profit margin than those who don't. A study from HR Report found that retaining employees also saves organization money and resources providing an even higher ROI. Employee turnover is very expensive. Oxford Economics reports the cost of a new hire is around $30,000 whereas the average spend of ongoing training per employee is only $1,500 per employee. It's exponentially more cost-effective to retain your employees than to hire new ones.
