A designated and ongoing learning and development (L&D) program within the workplace is arguably more important than ever. We have more technology, more sophisticated business landscapes, and faster-paced changes than ever before. In this dynamic environment, a well-structured and continuous L&D program within the workplace stands out as a strategic necessity.
According to Indeed, L&D programs can lead to enhanced work performance, improved morale, and skill improvement. Additionally, effective learning in the workplace goes beyond the individual. It also enables team-wide productivity, allowing the organization as a whole to adapt to changing and increasingly competitive environments.
At TBG, we value continuous education, which is why we have invested in Bonadio University, our internal L&D program consisting of a robust professional development curriculum for all our divisions.
The Bonadio University team is responsible for the strategy and implementation of all educational programs at TBG. The team works collaboratively with individuals and teams across the firm to provide education and resources to help our People learn and develop within their careers.
Bonadio University, which is currently growing and evolving, was not only developed to provide proper job training at the start of each employee’s days at the firm, but to also provide and maintain Continuing Professional Education (CPE) hours. While ongoing education is important in every industry, it is critical in the accounting profession. Given the highly regulated nature of the industry, there is a lot at stake. Accountants must regularly complete a certain number of CPE hours and those who fail to meet regulations are at risk of losing their license.
While this can be a lot to keep track of, Bonadio University provides learning tracks to assist our employees in meeting their CPE hours while also managing these hours to ensure all compliance requirements are met. Additionally, the Bonadio University team provides an annual training calendar for our People so they can plan and schedule these trainings accordingly.
Vice President of Learning and Organizational Development, Allyson Roote, believes that Bonadio University plays a critical role in moving the firm forward by investing in the development of our people at every stage in their career.
“By providing numerous learning opportunities that meet learners where they are at, we are able to deliver quality education for all staff that allows them to transfer the skills learned in the classroom to the field,” shared Allyson.
