Early Childhood Education = Future Skilled Workforce
In an article for SHRM, ReadyNation business leaders make the economic case for investing in early childhood education
Kathy Gurchiek of HR News, published an article in SHRM, the Society for Human Resource Management, that highlights ReadyNation’s work to engage business leaders in support of quality early childhood education, impacts the economy today and in the future.
Gurchiek quoted several ReadyNation members, including Stephanie Doliveira, J.D., Vice President of HR at Sheetz Inc. in Altoona, PA, who explained why companies are so willing to get engaged in support of early childhood care and education programs.
Gurchiek went on to describe other ways that companies can support early childhood education, such as by informing employees about the importance of parent engagement, by hosting family literacy events or arranging volunteering options, and by partnering with other organizations working on early childhood issues.
It’s surprising that business leaders would be advocates for children, but these children will enter the workforce in about 12 to 15 years. It’s the right thing to do for your community today, and for your future workforce.
