A few of my employees have occasionally brought up continuing certifications and education, wanting us to spend some of budget of course. I'm all for helping pay for a domain-specific certification or helping employees keep up their skills, but I'm trying to balance the high cost of both the training and the days lost.
My main question is:
Will I actually get a return on my investment in terms of improved skills if I pick the right certification training to approve? Should I outline what's an option, or should I have employees pitch what they want? And should I eat the whole cost or is it fair to split the bill?
Any suggestions or personal experiences are really appreciated.
