If one of your urgent business needs is to grow new company leaders (and it’s keeping you up at night), you’re not alone: developing new leaders has been identified as one of the key challenges facing executives right now. Some of the most sought-after skills can take a long time to develop, like communication, leadership, agility, and innovative problem solving. But these are exactly the kind of skills you can bring back to your company—and at record speed—through our Sponsored Employee Program.
This program offers business leaders a unique opportunity to develop high-potential employees who want to grow their careers, capabilities, and networks. In partnership with United Way, they will learn immensely valuable skills to deliver back to the companies they work for. By investing in the growth of top talent, business leaders are creating a competitive edge—and supporting the community they do business in at the same time.
The Sponsored Employee Program includes two distinct opportunities:
- Second an employee within your own company, helping you cultivate up-and-coming business leaders that are adaptable, versatile and can deal with ambiguity
- Provide sponsorship funding to launch someone else’s career, helping you demonstrate your commitment to the community and strengthen your brand profile
