Make the Most Out of ISP
ISP is designed to be as flexible as you need it—ensuring your staffing resources are covered, while empowering your team to bring knowledge and practical experience back to your department by earning a degree or certification.
Supporting your staff’s educational goals motivates your top performers to excel and prepares them for the future. All with no impact to your department’s budget. We understand that each department has different staffing needs. That’s why ISP is structured so you control how many wage replacement hours per pay period employees can use to attend classes, and how many employees can participate in the program at one time.
Having a conversation up front with your employee(s) so you understand their educational and career goals is important, and we can help! Your Outreach Specialist can help you develop a customized career development strategy to help your staff gain skills and advance.
