Are you a business looking to retain your talent? We invite you to participate in the Greater Minds initiative.
Investing in employee education is good for business and means having a more skilled workforce, happier employees, and new business opportunities. Businesses throughout the region often compete for talent. This program can help your business improve company culture and gain a competitive edge. We help businesses become employers of choice by providing free support and assistance to support employees’ return to school.
How the Program Works
Through one-on-one support, a dedicated staff professional will assist your business by helping employees evaluate options and identify opportunities, match their goals with the programs of local higher education institutions, and help them find the support they need to return to school.
Greater Minds for a Greater Economy
Supporting the education of working adults opens doors to opportunity for our whole region. Adults who complete their degree or certificate can earn more money, advance their careers, and improve job security. Higher education institutions recruit new students and diversify their student base. In short, an educated workforce means a healthy economy and thriving community.
Greater Minds Business Toolkit
Greater Minds has developed a Business Toolkit to highlight best practices around this region and beyond. It is designed to provide information to employers who want to expand programs already in place or build programming where it does not currently exist. Additionally, this toolkit will spark ideas for new and innovative ways to engage employees in expanding their education and skills.
We are ready to help you and your employees through this process. In addition to the toolkit, Greater Minds can provide the following assistance to employees:
- Focused navigation designed to benefit adult learners
- Financial aid assistance
- Determining the fastest route to completion of a degree, certificate or training program
- Tools to implement a new program or encourage employees to use an existing program
