Corporate learning is a top priority for employees | Virtual College

Integrating corporate education into a business's strategic goals is the way to adjust millennial retention, according to Jason Wingard of Columbia University’s school of professional studies.

To stay competitive and to create and maintain an agile business, companies must adjust their corporate values, workplace environment and their current team structures.

In a blog piece for the Huffington Post, Mr Wingard stated that corporate learning has been critically under-leveraged in the race to attract millennial talent.

Millennials are eager to find out whether they will have the opportunity to develop a strong set of competencies and transferable skills that will not only be useful for their current employer, but in the future when their careers advance.

More than ever before, employees are considering future career trajectories and committing to working for businesses that will support their top priority, one of career development.

Mr Wingard also highlighted that a high turnover hurts attraction and retention.
