Encourage professional growth with this development plan template
This simple template can serve as a tool for promoting the professional development of your employees by outlining their developmental objectives and defining specific measures to achieve them.
Professional growth involves collaboration between you and your employees. You're responsible for providing training and development opportunities--but they're responsible for taking advantage of the opportunities and successfully completing the training they receive. This template from The Enterprise Computing Institute is designed to formalize this mutual commitment between managers and their staff members. Implementing a development strategy:
- Provides a clear statement to employees that you are interested and committed to their professional growth.
- Focuses on the mutual commitment (employee and employer) necessary to make career development a reality.
- Enables predictable budgeting of training costs.
- Provides for feedback on the efficacy of training.
