The Importance of Professional Development in the Workplace

November 13, 2019

Millennials are flipping the traditional corporate culture upside down in favor of an enjoyable working environment and professional development programs. It’s crucial for companies to continuously offer opportunities for development to keep up with the youngest working generation, and many corporations are experiencing growing pains in an attempt to adapt.

Pacific Office Automation prides itself on being an outstanding employer, and these are the top ways in which it contributes to its employees’ professional development:

Training Opportunities

Internal training benefits the company in obvious ways, but it also has a significant impact on employees. We include educational opportunities in our employees’ professional development plans not only so they’re experts on our company and products, but to foster continuous learning so they have the knowledge and skills to advance in their careers and personal lives.

Growing Culture

Employee growth is the first step to company growth, and that’s not something we take lightly. Our company is rewarded with an increase in morale and productivity when employees are reaching their own professional development goals, and that results in more positive relationships with our customers. We want you to stick with us for the long-term, and we’ll help you advance along the way.


As everyone has their own learning style, everyone has a unique working style. We’re not just here to tell you how to be good at your job - we’re here to help you be successful in your career. We trust our employees to work hard, so you’re in charge of your own schedule. At Pacific Office Automation, you don’t have to sacrifice your independence for growth.

Team Outings

Teamwork doesn’t always have to take place in the office. Some of our best team bonding occurs while cheering on the Portland Trail Blazers at the Moda Center or at our Summer Sales Retreat, and we hold a lot of value in that. Great culture and professional development activities extend beyond corporate walls, and you won’t fall short of opportunities with us.

Rewarding Environment

Everyone can make a difference, period. Pacific Office Automation rewards great ideas and contributions, regardless of experience or job titles. In addition to verbal affirmation of your hard work, we offer competitive vacation plans to countries such as the Bahamas, Jamaica, and Costa Rica as a little extra thank you.

Join Us

We always want ambitious people to join our team. If you’re a driven person in search of a growth-oriented culture and professional development opportunities, check out our current openings. We look forward to hearing from you!
