Today the Workforce Development Board / Local Employment Planning Council (WDB / LEPC) released a new report focused on the benefits of experiential learning for employers. The publication provides four success stories from local employers in agriculture, healthcare, manufacturing, and tourism to illustrate the widespread benefits of experiential learning.
The research and employer stories featured in the report provide insight into some of these benefits including, recruitment strategies, retention of local talent, and in some cases financial savings.
By addressing common barriers with tips for success and a glossary of terms, the goal of the publication is to increase awareness and build local capacity to continue hosting and offering experiential learning opportunities.
Please help us review this project by taking part in this four-question survey.
