A gift that keeps on giving both to the employee and the employer is the gift of education
Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) April 21, 2008
April 20-26 is Administrative Professionals Week, a time to honor the men and women who keep companies around the world up and running efficiently. The International Association of Administrative Professionals suggests that one way companies can honor their staff is through tuition reimbursement. Many professionals would be interested in furthering their education, but don't have the necessary resources. eLearners.com, a web resource of EducationDynamics, offers information on tuition reimbursement and several online degree programs and online courses for administrative assistants.
"A gift that keeps on giving both to the employee and the employer is the gift of education," said Terrence Thomas, Chief Marketing Officer for eLearners.com. "Tuition reimbursement is a company's way of not only showing respect and appreciation for an employee's hard work and aspirations, but also a way to advance their skills to be a better employer. In addition, online education has become the medium of choice that lets employees take advantage of education while balancing their work."
The U.S. Department of Labor reports that jobs for administrative professionals are expected to grow about nine percent between 2006 and 2016. Currently, administrative professionals hold more than 4.2 million jobs in 2006, making it one of the largest occupations in the U.S. So, during Administrative Professionals Week, eLearners.com, which connects prospective students with online education providers, will offer a variety of online courses and degree programs for administrative professionals to advance their knowledge and careers and take advantage of their tuition reimbursement.
By receiving an online education, administrative professionals empower their career, increase their salary and prime themselves to take more leadership roles within their company. Many administrative professionals pursue their online business degree to move up the corporate ladder. Another popular choice by administrative assistants is to complete a formerly abandoned degree while continuing to work in the business world. Many online colleges offer degree completion programs in addition to full bachelor's and master's degree programs.

"For employers, tuition reimbursement is a benefit that can help attract and retain quality employees. For employees, tuition reimbursement is a critical part of their compensation," continued Thomas. "The challenge for administrative assistants or any employee has always been time and online education has become the solution to overcome that issue."
