Why Certify My Employees

Why Certify My Employees

Did you know there are benefits for a business when an employee gets certified?

Three reasons why helping your staff earn a CAFM / CAFS certification can benefit your business:

  1. Leads to happier employees — who stick around longer
    When you invest in employees, you invest in the future of your organization. Motivating your team in obtaining CAFM / CAFS shows them you share in their desire to be the best they can be and improves morale and motivation. People are happier working for organizations that are invested in their professional development and committed to helping them take the next steps in their career.

    Employees will feel valued by the company, which can go a long way in prompting them to want to stay, which reduces one of your biggest headaches and expenses — staff turnover.
  2. Encourages greater peace of mind
    Certified employees learn from their training the importance of adhering to certain professional standards. You can more easily and confidently rely on your team’s ability to meet industry benchmarks and count on work of a higher and more consistent quality. That peace of mind is worth investing in. Managers who promote professional development are able to get the most from their staff members. In order to compete with best-in-class organizations, you need highly skilled and qualified employees at all levels.
  3. Boosts productivity
    The ROI of the CAFM program is measurable and remarkable. Studies by a variety of organizations — including Microsoft, IDC, CompTIA and Novell — have shown that employees with a professional certification are more productive. That’s because certifications better prepare workers to deal with day-to-day challenges and get the most out of new technologies. Certified employees often work more efficiently than uncertified colleagues, and their presence can help improve the productivity of team projects.

A small investment of your training dollars, a significant investment of your employee's time and you will see measurable efficiencies and savings.

CAFM / CAFS recipients join the certification program because:
"I want my boss' job"
"I am new to the industry and want to discover my blind spots"
"My employer is making this a mandatory requirement for employment in our City."
"Other people in the organization have professional designations relating to their specialty area. I want to deal with them on an equal basis by having the CAFM designation."
"I believe that you are never too old to learn. After 24 years in the industry, I want the professional recognition that goes along with completing my CAFM."
"Our industry is constantly changing. I know the CAFM program is very current and stays on top of the changes I need to know."
"I may already have a degree and an MBA but it is industry-specific information I need to do my job."
"I want to show my employer that I am dedicated to this organization and this industry so he will continue to invest in me."
