College for ME – Androscoggin wants to encourage you, the Employer, to consider partnering with us to provide resources and create opportunities for your Employees to further their own educational and career pursuits.
College for ME – Androscoggin provides opportunities for Employers to do this in the following ways:
College for ME –Androscoggin convenes educational representatives and provides comprehensive resources for Employers and Employees through a one day Opportunity Fair that allows for individuals to hear from a panel, meet with representatives and follow through with making plans for furthering their educational goals. This Opportunity Fair also provides financial resources such as scholarship applications, financial aid guidance and loan information.
When employers support employee education and training:
Educated employees work smarter and cope better with workplace change, which improves productivity. Educational support for employees also builds loyalty and lowers turnover, and it’s cheaper to invest in current employees than spend on recruitment.
Employees benefit, too!
Higher levels of education can lead to an improved quality of life, through a higher lifetime earnings potential, greater job satisfaction, and the ability to plan and save for the future.
And don’t forget, our community benefits as well!
A better educated workforce increases a community’s quality of life, helps attract better-paying employers, and even ensures greater educational success for the next generation
