Stakeholder Capitalism and Education
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.
About a year ago, Business Roundtable redefined what it means to invest in employees. It said in an article published in August 2019, “[Investing in our employees] starts with compensating them fairly and providing important benefits. It also includes supporting them through training and education that help develop new skills for a rapidly changing world.” *
The world is changing faster than ever, so it’s critical that employees be encouraged to keep learning as they need to take on more responsibilities. People will be more willing to take on an increased workload if they feel prepared for what will be added. In creating an educational partnership, you are setting both the company and the individual up for immense success.
If you want to take this next step in investing in your employees, Mount Vernon Nazarene University wants to help. We can offer specialized training programs or tuition discounts when you partner with us. If interested, contact Ryan Stagg, Director of Outreach and Strategic Partnerships, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
