Charlotte Works closes the gap between what employers want and the skills workers have. That also means ensuring career-seekers receive the education and training needed to meet job requirements. Partnerships play a key role in making that happen.
We recently announced a partnership with Strayer University and four-time NASCAR, three-time Super Bowl champion head coach and renowned leader Joe Gibbs, for the launch of the Joe Gibbs Performance Management program. The program will begin this spring and specialize in some of Gibbs’ core leadership principles: recruiting, team-building and employee performance. The partnership will offer seven scholarships; five full scholarships for bachelor’s degrees in business administration and two scholarships for the graduate-level certificate program.
Providing advancement scholarships to support talent development is one of the strategies under the Charlotte Works’ Careers4All initiative, which launched in November.
“Our partnership with Strayer University and its Joe Gibbs Performance Management program will provide more access to undergraduate and graduate education for career-seekers who may not be afforded these opportunities,” said Danielle Frazier, Charlotte Works’ Chief Operating Officer. “It also helps to close the skills gap and create opportunities for sustainable employment and upward mobility.”
Employers will be able to provide their employees with no-cost, no-debt degrees and certificates. The result for these companies is a significant return on investment through improved employee retention, productivity and overall satisfaction.
