PhillyColleges is our most strategic and innovative partner in the college and university environment. They place tremendous emphasis in higher learning and adult degree completion programs. We are very pleased to have this level of support within our organization to help our employees grow and develop, and to give back to SEPTA.
We have hosted the “Employee Education Fair” for many years. This is a very popular event and greatly assists in our career progression efforts.
Many of our employees want to further their careers. This was a positive look at how to accomplish their goal. Thank you!
It shows that we are concerned about the future of our staff and that we encourage growth.
An educated workforce is an advantage. The fair coordinator cooperated to seamlessly integrate the fair into our workday. A number of employees made a point to tell me how pleased they were with the fair.
You made our first fair a success! We hope to do this every year. Thanks!
The education fair was a valuable and positive experience for our employees and the high school students in our career program. It was a great opportunity for attendance by bringing the event on-site.
Because there were multiple colleges in attendance it provided an opportunity for employees to find schools close to work and home. It also gave the allowed employees to ask specific questions based on what their needs were. Many employees, like myself, find it time consuming to search the internet, contact colleges, etc… and having a group together that can easily be accessed during lunch, breaks etc… was very convenient.
Each university was properly represented with enough information for our employees to make the best decision for themselves and/or their family and friends. We only had to provide the space; the representatives of the consortium controlled everything else. It was most helpful to all of us in the Human Resources department, not to have to worry about the set-up or break down of the education fair. UPS emphasizes higher education, not only for a more erudite employee, but also to further develop a diverse and learned individual.
