How workforce education fueled growth for these multi-billion dollar companies
In this video from the Workforce InFocus series, former CEOs Nancy Schlichting of Henry Ford Health Systems, Mark Fields of Ford Motor Company, Chuck Rubin of The Michaels Companies, Inc. and Clarence Otis of Darden Restaurants look back on what had most to their companies’ successes: their people.
These industry leaders recognize that taking care of your people and taking care of your business are one in the same.
But building a skilled, agile workforce doesn’t just happen. It requires enabling your people to reach their potential by providing them with learning opportunities that are accessible to all — from the frontline to the C-suite.
This sort of revolutionary thinking replaces traditional L&D with strategic workforce education that’s geared to business goals, emerging skills needs and employee needs. And it’s at this intersection where business growth and innovation really happen.
InStride’s pioneering approach to strategic workforce education overhauls what companies can expect out of L&D. Out of the gate, on average, companies are seeing 92% employee retention of InStride program participants vs. 63% retention of non-participants.
By focusing on customized programs that impact business and employee outcomes, companies are seeing an average ROI of 226%. When L&D stops being an expense and starts being an investment with proven returns, it redefines what a culture of learning brings to every component of a business.
