Employers Taking Action
Employers concerned about rapidly changing employee needs, an aging workforce, and a shortage of skilled workers are taking action. Many are preventing potential skill gaps and workforce shortages by investing now in educational programs that will help build their organization’s talent pipeline. According to Training Magazine,1 some of these activities include:
- Establishing partnerships with leading institutions to ensure employees have access to education resources. Organizations are encouraged to offer tuition assistance programs to employees and provide work environments that support those who need flexibility to return to school, study, and complete assignments. Research shows businesses that support employee educational attainment are rewarded for their efforts through more loyal, productive, and capable employees.
- Investing some of the nearly $100 billion spent each year in training offerings toward degree completion for employees through college equivalency assessments. The American Council on Education (ACE) makes available to the private sector the evaluation of formal training toward ACE credit to reduce employees’ time to attain degrees and employer’s costs of tuition toward degrees. This concept also gives employees the opportunity to pursue graduate-level degrees sooner.
