As they say, knowledge is power. In professional terms, this can be true. The more you know about your role, the business you work for and the practises it does will make you more valuable as an employee and a team member. If your company is thinking of making any job cuts and it’s between you and someone else who knows a little bit more than you about their job, then unfortunately it may be you who gets let go. Not only does CPD give you value within the company, but within your team too. If you know what you’re talking about in your job more than others, you’ll have more respect from your co-workers.
