Do you find your current employee development plans to be ineffective? Are you looking to better engage employees so they are more productive?

Studies show the key to employee motivation is professional development training programs as a path to advancement.

This is a tremendous opportunity for managers and business owners, since  94% of employees said they would stay with their employer if it invested in their development.

Now you can train, engage and focus your employees like never before with this new Employee Development Plan Template Kit

This EDP Template is the leanest, most powerful way to truly develop the employee’s development path and gain their buy-in and engagement. 

Employee and manager can quickly rate and rank which job role proficiencies to prioritize for the coming quarter, with management having final say.

Why managers, HR, and business owners need this modern employee development approach

Employee development plans have lost their way. They’ve become these huge, bloated HR beasts that smother their original intent: employee performance development. As a result they are a CHORE for both employee and manager. 

Because of this enlarged scope – and the large labor costs and time involved to complete them – many companies have turned these into annual events or blow them off completely. 

This further disengages employees and dilutes their focus compared to a quick quarterly review.

Even managers can become disengaged with the large scope of these development plans. They become an annual exercise in CYA – complete them because they are required. 

If you want to stop wasting everyone’s valuable time with plans that are too large in scope, and focus on employee development, this template is for you.

This EDP Template Kit focuses on building a partnership of consent between employer and employee by including inputs from both. Its designed to be self-sufficient so it can be administered quickly each quarter.

Sales Rep example: Employee and manager quickly rate and rank proficiencies together, in 15 minutes or less

This EDP Template Kit is designed to save both manager and employee time: easy to set up, and fast to administer quarterly

Set up the Employee Development Plan one time, based on the employee’s job description. Ongoing, it can be completed in 15 minutes each quarter, during employee’s quarterly development (EQD) review. 

These lean development plans will become something employees actually look forward to, to measure themselves against benchmarks that they themselves help set!
