A CRITICAL BUSINESS ISSUE: EDUCATION
After home buying, education is the number one cost facing employees. Whether it’s putting a child in a day school, researching colleges, or applying to continuing education programs, employees spend a significant amount of time and energy and money focusing on education-related issues.
Increasingly, companies are turning to experts to help alleviate employee concerns and save time while on the job. Companies can manage employee time and productivity by making education advice available to employees in the workplace. This approach benefits employers by improving the performance of top employees by allowing them to focus on the critical tasks of business at-hand.
Specifically, companies may offer employees access to educational consulting services that help employees and their families:
•Determine the best possible college options for employees’ college bound children
•Finance college; identify sources of merit-based and need-based aid for education
•Identify their children’s qualities, talents and skills that matter most to colleges
•Navigate the high school, college, and or graduate school admission process
•Deliver applications that will offer the best chance of admission to a school of choice
