Benefitting Both Corporations and Employees by Building a Better-Educated Workforce

High turnover, low engagement, and lack of skills keeps many entry-level or front line workers underemployed. Savvy businesses, particularly in the services sector, are finding that the costs of recruiting, training, and onboarding new employees is time consuming, expensive, and unsustainable. By partnering with Career Online High School, such organizations can invest in the education and careers of their employees — and ultimately improve their businesses by changing the career trajectory of those workers.

Career Online High School allows employees to achieve their high school diploma online, while continuing to work. As part of the program, employees complete industry-specific coursework to earn a specialized Career Certificate that prepares them for success within your corporation. Employees also learn essential career skills that can be applied on the job, such as computer, communication, professionalism, and management skills.
