Why should you provide career and professional programming to your members?

Consider the following.

The average person will change careers 5-7 times during their working life. This number is expected to increase with an ever-expanding number of career choices.

Thirty percent of 30 percent of the workforce will change careers or jobs every 12 months.

We’d be remise if we didn’t remind you that over 50 million workers were either laid-off, fired, or furloughed in the first four months of the Coronavirus Pandemic.Its quite clear that your members are experiencing fear, uncertainty, and doubt about their career and their futures.

You can better serve your members by giving them access to top career advice from the world’s top career authors. Each of us are transitioning in and out of different phases of our careers during these uncertain times. That is why we give your members access to four different lecture series each month.
