Registration now open for the CAEL 2022 Conference in Chicago, IL. Join us!

2020 was a year of unprecedented change for the workforce.  In spite of the challenges, many employees continued to pursue education and work to improve their economic mobility.

In this on-demand webinar from Chief Learning Officer, hear from key leaders at CAEL and the McDonald’s Corporation, which has experience in creating and providing restaurant employees with education programs that support a new vision for the employer-employee contract. It’s one that includes external education and career development support. As the McDonald’s team has re-imagined work, they see education as a key driver of employee development and business success. In partnership with Accenture, McDonald’s has conducted an extensive study on the ROI of these programs and has discovered significant, positive impact on employee retention, career mobility and overall sales.
