Glassdoor Survey: Employees Want More Training Programs, Not Degrees

Glassdoor Survey: Employees Want More Training Programs, Not Degrees | entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

Recently, a number of analysts and editorialists have attempted to tackle the much-debated question: are degrees and advanced degrees worth it? 

 

With the jury still out, Glassdoor and market research firm Harris Interactive asked nearly 1,000 U.S. employees about their own opinions on the value of higher education.

 

 

A large majority of respondents--82 percent--said that their undergraduate degree has, indeed, helped to boost their career. However, when it comes to further acquiring the skills they need for their job, 72 percent of employees said they value specialized training over earning a degree.
