Make a case for training your employees

In a Tight Talent Market, an Employer's Help with Education Expenses Can Turn a Candidate's Head From Society for Human Resource Management: When Janice Flanders graduated from college in the early '90s, she had no student loan debt, thanks to her then-employer's tuition assistance program.

Now that her son is a college graduate who has student loan debt, Flanders recognizes how important such programs are. So she's trying to get one started at the Ohio company where she is the HR director.
