The ROI on professional development 

Education and industry partnerships are a powerful way of demonstrating your organization's investment in employees' personal and professional growth. According to a LinkedIn Learning Workforce report, 93% of employees would stay longer if their company invested in their careers.

Having an educational partner helps show your employees that you care about them and their professional development, which helps you 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 the HR Report found that retaining employees also save organizations money and resources, providing an even higher ROI.

Employee turnover is 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.
