Employers can build and retain top talent by offering educational and skill-building opportunities for employees, new research from Paychex Inc. shows.
The survey of over 600 employees nationwide, conducted in partnership with Future Workplace, an Executive Networks member company, highlights workers’ desires to sharpen their skills and advance their careers with the support of their employers.
Sixty-three percent of respondents said they would be more likely to stay at their organization if they were provided with better learning opportunities.
The report further revealed that employers are providing the right learning and development opportunities for full-time, in-office employees, but have gaps to fill when it comes to remote, hybrid and part-time workers.
“The American work experience is more varied than ever before — even between workers in the same roles,” said Alison Stevens, director of HR Services at Paychex. “With employees yearning for more educational and career-building experiences, employers will need to pay attention to the differences between these groups to curate programs that keep employees engaged and stimulated regardless of their time in an office.”
