Investing in employee training and development can have significant results on your bottom line. A study by the American Society for Training and Development revealed that companies that invest in employee training gain 21% in profit.

Besides adding to your bottom line, investing in learning and development skills also boosts employee engagement. The study disclosed that 94% of employees will stay at a company that values continual learning and development. To stay competitive in today’s market it is vital that companies invest in their employee’s growth. Pinnacle’s training offerings can help to support this effort.
