The largest generation in the workforce is heavily focused on growth. Career growth, that is.
An overwhelming majority of millennial employees rated “professional or career growth and development opportunities” as important to them in a job. Despite this, only 39% reported learning something new in the last 30 days.
That is why we created the Axxess Training and Certification Program, so organizations will have an easy, comprehensive and cost-effective way to implement a training and development plan. Care at home organizations that do not have a viable training and development plan run the risk of losing current staff and may fail to attract new employees to the workforce.
What to Consider Before Starting Your Training Program
There are several factors to consider before starting a training program:
- Picking a partner – Choosing to form a partnership is always a big commitment and there are hundreds of different educational programs to choose from.
- Cost – The average business spends over $1,100 on training per employee every year. Regardless of organization size, this is a massive cost.
- Time – Most care at home organizations and professionals may only have a few free minutes a day to spend on training and may be overwhelmed by the time necessary for any extensive training.
Because we believe the future of healthcare is in the home, Axxess has created a training and development plan that’s attainable for all. This training program removes the burden of finding a trusted education partner, is offered at no additional cost and the curriculum was developed to accommodate the schedule of busy care at home professionals.
