What is BEN?
A private sector, pro-active approach to better synchronize workforce skills with the needs of the changing economy.
Business Education Networks, launched by the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce, seeks to narrow the workforce skills gap by better connecting employers with high school and college students. A key to this success in bringing together local chambers, employers, and educators to focus on a common goal of strengthening tomorrow's workforce. Because employers cannot find sufficient numbers of qualified job applicants during both good and bad economic times, this will ensure that businesses have ready access to highly skilled workers they want to employ. This will also ensure that students from all backgrounds complete degree and certificate programs in areas where they will have meaningful employments options.
