Professional Development Solutions with Steve Gilman
Professional development opportunities: It doesn’t matter if you’re running a three-person operation or have hundreds of people on the payroll - this is something every business and corporation should offer to their employees.
Don’t believe us? In the last year, the number one reason people left their company to pursue another job was a lack of career development. And on the Top 500 Best Places to Work list, 72% of employers who made the cut offered learning stipends. Educational resources have gone from being a fringe perk to a necessary benefit.
But all that takes time, energy, and resources. Enter today’s guest, Steve Gilman. Steve is co-founder and CEO of OneRange, a professional development platform that helps business owners retain and grow top talent.
Their cloud-based application is a central hub where employees can access any training resource they want. Gone are the days of manual enrollment or issuing cost reimbursement, or back-and-forth between boss and employee. OneRange empowers individuals to choose the learning tools they want to continue to upskill and reskill with just a click. It not only gives employees more freedom to discover what they are interested in and passionate about - but also helps employers identify potentially hidden strengths and opportunities for growth in their workers. It’s a win-win for all parties involved.
What you’ll learn:
- Why retaining top talent is critical for your bottom line and productivity
- How OneRange simplifies and streamlines the training process
- How their data-driven system is changing the game in professional development

- What founders and investors can learn from one another
- …and much more!
“A small team with high accountability can get a lot more done with ownership and choice than large teams with low accountability and less talent that’s willing to learn.”
