Professional and Organizational Development (POD) Leadership and Employees

In 2018, EMHS [now Northern Light Health] celebrated the academic achievements of its first Professional and Organizational Development (POD) program graduates at the Gracie Theatre. In partnership with Husson University, this dynamic program enabled employees to enhance their knowledge of the healthcare industry and gain leadership skills, with the added opportunity to convert this learning into college credit.

According to Dean Marie Hansen, JD, PhD, professional development programs like this benefit employees and organizations. “Professional development training helps organizations take their performance to the next level,” she says. “It’s also a valuable employee retention and recruitment tool. If an employee feels that his or her organization is willing to invest in them, they’re more likely to remain motivated and stay with the company.”
