How Organizations Can Leverage Employee Education Benefits to Attract and Retain Top Talent

Instructor: Lahari Subraveti
Are you interested in attracting and retaining top talent to continue smooth growth of your business? Is your employee turnover rate high? Offering education benefits may be your answer.

Turnover Rate

Throughout all industries there is an average of 15.1% employee turnover. Some industries like the fast-food industry, report a turnover-rate well over 100% . With high turnover comes higher costs associated with replacing and training new employees. According to the Center for American Progress, this can range from 16% to over 231% of an employee's salary. With turnover rates and the cost associated so high, the big question is: how can an organization attract and retain top talent? Education benefits!

Education Benefits

Education benefits can be used to attract talent by offering tuition reimbursements to employees who wish to pursue courses outside of the workplace. While attending a traditional on-site college or university may be difficult for full-time and part-time workers, organizations can offer tuition reimbursements for online courses as well. Additionally an online learning format allows workers to make their own schedule when it comes to studying.
