A degree in business administration can open many doors for working adults, but it also can be challenging to manage coursework and a busy schedule as a student. Online programs allow professionals to earn their degree while maintaining a healthy balance between family, work, school, and other responsibilities.
In light of dramatic changes in the workforce as a result of an ongoing pandemic, the need for increased skills in any career field continues to grow. As companies are eliminating and consolidating positions, current employees will have to increase their workload and use underdeveloped skills. Upskilling has proved to be beneficial to both the individual and the company or organization, reducing costs and improving efficiency.
The most important investment a company can make is its employees. Without them, the work would never get done. While it’s essential to have a great working environment and a good salary, an often-overlooked way of investing in employees is encouraging continued education.
When corresponding with corporate partners, a surprising email received said, “All of our employees have the educational requirements they need.” What often gets misunderstood is continuing education is not simply necessary to earn a job but also the desire to grow as an individual and a way to improve a company as a whole. It’s time to rethink the outcomes of upskilling, training and promoting education.
