Enhanced efficiency

On average, 40 percent to 55 percent of top-performing teams are comprised of MCPs.

Increased employee expertise and retention

Seventy-five percent of managers believe that certifications are important to team performance. Forty-five percent of employees strongly agree that when their employers pay for exams, it provides a strong incentive to stay in their jobs.
