Why Investing In Your Education Helps Your Employer, Too
Taking the next step in your educational journey is more than a way to enhance your salary and overall career possibilities. It also benefits you and your employer in the context of your current work and potential within the organization.
The following talking points can help you discuss the idea of advancing your education with your employer:
1. You’ll almost immediately become a more effective employee.
The concepts and skills you learn can be applied in your day-to-day work, impacting your team and your company immediately. And earning your degree could become a long-term goal for your company performance reviews, if your company uses those types of objectives.
2. Your employer will retain top talent.
Multiple studies have found how employer tuition plans enhance feelings of loyalty and reduce turnover. Instead of finding highly qualified talent through (costly) recruiting efforts, companies can save money and enhance morale by promoting from within. It’s well worth the investment from their perspective, and employer tuition reimbursement plans are a big selling point when companies need to attract new talent.
3. Earning your degree online means you won’t disrupt your work schedule.
Online programs at Methodist University are highly flexible, so your manager doesn’t have to worry about your learning or coursework conflicting with your work schedule. You’ll earn your degree on a timeline that works with your personal and professional commitments.
There’s no question that advancing your education is a win-win for you and your employer. It’s an exciting opportunity all-around.
