For the past several years, Corporate Voices for Working Families has identified and promoted innovative Learn and Earn partnerships across the country. These partnerships between business and education providers help bridge the skills gap for employers while encouraging and/or supporting current and future employees’ attainment of postsecondary credentials with labor market value — the most significant benchmark for achieving economic sustainability. Learn and Earn partnerships are talent development models that provide a real return for leading companies.
Corporate Voices has documented 22 best practice Learn and Earn partnerships in an ongoing series of case studies. We have also analyzed and compiled broader findings in workforce readiness and talent development best practices.
