The Preserve and Hodges University have announced a corporate education partnership that will allow for The Preserve to recruit through the university, offer internship opportunities and serve the university and its students in a variety of additional ways including guest lectures and job shadowing.

Recruiting and retaining high-caliber talent are significant challenges faced by employers. Studies show that in addition to compensation, perks and wellness offerings, employees value the opportunity to expand their knowledge and skills. As a Hodges University Corporate Education Partner, The Preserve will have the ability to offer its employees an added education benefit of tuition discounts and preferred admission interviews. Current and future employees of The Preserve will receive a 20% per credit hour discount for most credit-bearing programs.

“The Preserve is dedicated to providing the best possible care for our residents and in order to do that we must ensure that we provide our team members with competitive benefits in order to attract and retain top quality employees,” said Ryan Keller, executive director at The Preserve. “This partnership with Hodges University not only will benefit our current employees and future employees but will give us the ability to interact with perspective team members through the university involvement opportunities.”

The Preserve is a Volunteers of America community that offers a continuum of care with its intimate assisted living and memory care neighborhoods, short-term rehabilitation services and long-term care nursing community. To learn more about The Preserve visit ThePreserveVOA.org .
