What is a Personal and Professional Development Plan?

“A Personal and Professional Development Plan enables you to have a personal vision of the future, which gives you a clear idea as to what or where you will be in the next few months or years. Knowing your target and destination in life makes it easy to draw up a plan on how you will achieve your goals.”

In business, personal development improves effectiveness. It empowers staff to produce better results and meet their targets. For excellent results, an employer or a business owner must have an energetic and productive team. Business revenues are created by the people you employ and without them, little or no business would take place.

For personal development plans to succeed, they must be designed to improve the individuals within the organisation so that both the employee and the organisation reap mutual benefits by achieving both personal and corporate objectives.

Personal development plans may also increase employees’ confidence. The confidence factor might seem inconsequential, but it has a major role to play in how your business is perceived. Client-facing staff must always exude confidence, otherwise, the customer will not be confident in your product or service.  The likelihood of a client recommending your business to someone else is higher if they had a positive experience with a confident worker who was enthusiastic and happy to help. The fact that you’re spending money on their personal development is, in itself, a confidence boost for staff and this rubs off on customers.

The key is Personalisation.  

With SA Campus, we will provide a consultation to determine your employee-specific growth and development needs.  Thereafter, we will compile a personalised professional development plan consisting of self-paced online courses aimed at furthering your employees’ skills in their specific job roles, while focusing on filling any skills gaps and reaching their career goals.  We will further assist in setting timeframes for completion of our online courses, with email reminders once your employees are enrolled.  Our courses are 100% online, with lifetime access to learning material, assessments, and a certificate after successful completion.
