Partnerships between business and education help both youth and businesses

Partnerships between business and education may be geared toward helping young people but they also pay dividends for the businesses. That’s among the findings in A Talent Development Solution: Exploring Business Drivers and Returns in Learn and Earn Partnerships, produced by Corporate Voices for Working Families (a Ready by 21 National Partner). The report says that “beyond the primary impact — building a better-skilled talent pool — employers report these partnerships yield improved employee retention, higher productivity, a more diverse workforce and an enhanced reputation in the communities they serve.” 12/14/2012
