In a newly posted chapter from Investing in America’s Workforce: Improving Outcomes for Workers and Employers, the authors explore results from a survey of over 1,600 businesses. Findings reveal a valuable relationship between employers who provide learning benefits and employees who take advantage of these programs. For small and midsized employers in particular, employer-provided education programs are influential in achieving employers’ organizational goals. Read the chapter at investinwork.org/book and stay tuned for the book launch on November 9!
The chapter is part of Investing in America’s Workforce: Improving Outcomes for Workers and Employers, which will be released on November 9, 2018. The book includes the voices of over 100 contributing authors who share research, best practices, and resources on workforce development.

Upjohn Institute for Employment Research. See www.investinwork.org for more information on the initiative and the upcoming book release.
