Education Benefits are Critical to Attracting and Retaining Top Talent

Fast track rising stars with the Institute’s professional development opportunities.
DENVER (December 6, 2019) – There is no debate, the workplace is changing, and doing so rapidly. Naturally, so are the expectations employees have of their employers. According to a Gallup Panel Study, 93% of US adults left their employer to change roles. In fact, the number one reason employees search for a new opportunity is career advancement, according to one survey by LinkedIn. And let’s face it, nowadays, employees are looking to differentiate themselves and stretch their professional wings.
The most recent Bright Horizons Working Learning Index, asked more than 30,000 working learners to select their top three reasons for pursuing more education or training, the most common answer (42%) was to “keep pace with or get ahead of changes in my position.” This beat out all other reasons, including even earning more money.
