Why is Professional Development Important?

Over the last few decades, we have seen a decrease in the number of people who finish school, start their first job, and remain there through retirement. Our marketplaces and business world are growing and changing at an ever more rapid pace. Today’s employees need to have expert knowledge of how to manage stressful situations. We need to be ready on the first day to make a difference and continue to improve our appearance and our ability to make a connection throughout our careers.
