Tool of the Month - October 2014
Professional development is an important part of efforts to retain staff and provide a high-quality program, and it is important to solicit staff member input on topics and to identify what staff members hope to get from the experience. You can use Tool 24: Staff Training Survey to do this; give it to your staff during the year to ensure that everyone feels supported, grows in his or her position, and has an opportunity to give feedback. For more information on professional development, check out pages 33–36 in Chapter 1: Management.
