As American Economy Recovers, Employers Prioritize Education Benefits to Attract and Develop Workers
NEWTON, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–As the country continues to reopen following the coronavirus pandemic, so too is the job market. According to the most recent jobs report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are more than seven million open jobs right now in America.
With so many open positions, employers are seeking employees who are interested in advancing their education and developing new skills while employees are seeking employers who offer those benefits. The World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs report projects that by 2025, 44% of the skills that employees will need to perform their roles effectively will change. And according to a recent research report, the majority of American workers say they would feel more motivated, more secure and better equipped to do their jobs if they had access to education opportunities offered by their employer.
