These aren’t mere buzz words, but are the workforce trends that impact how your corporation or organization does business today. Education, training, and leadership advancement are key to keeping up and staying on top, as it relates to both bottom line and employee retention. And that’s why Bay Path University has launched Strategic Alliances. Strategic Alliances provides you with both one-stop, non-credit, customized learning experiences and programs in women’s leadership development.
We know that no two companies are alike: big vs. small, private vs. public, product vs. service oriented. But they do have one thing in common—employees. They are the human capital of a company or organization and reflect a vast array of differences including gender, generational and diversity. A recent September 2016 Bureau of Labor Statistic Report determined the average tenure for employees in the United States, regardless of age, is a mere 4.6 years (2 years for Millennials). There is a competition for talent that is heating up, and this will require your company or organization to focus more on retaining your employees. What’s one of the first steps in addressing these issues? Education and professional development.
Caron Hobin, Vice President of Strategic Alliances, provides this perspective on Bay Path’s new division: “Bay Path has a long history of providing practical and relevant education. Strategic Alliances builds on that foundation and focuses on the workplace. We did our homework. We went on a listening tour, and over and over again employers said to us they are looking for competency-based skill building that is not prescribed, but addresses a real problem. For example, it may be helping first-time front line managers to deal with customers and other employees—the answer may be to provide interactive learning experiences that simulate situations and also integrate in the concept of empathy skill building. We work with the employer to develop a menu of educational options that work specifically with them at that time.”
With Baby Boomers retiring and more and more Millennials stepping into management roles, experts predict there will be seismic shifts in office dynamics, operations, and workplace practices. Is your company ready for work-life 3.0? Strategic Alliances partners with you to find the answers.
