  • Kent’s Column: What is the ROI on hiring a SummerWorks kid?

    1/14/2015 04:12:00 PM0 Comments

    Last week I sent out a joint email with Mayor Fischer to our membership.  The purpose was to highlight the fast-growing SummerWorks program which seeks seasonal employment for local 16-21 year old youth.  While the response was positive, one return email got me thinking.  It asked, as I might expect from our business-savvy constituents, "what's the payback for this", or as I read it, "show me the money".

    OK, fair enough.  If we are asking a business to spend somewhere in the $2500 range to employ a kid for the summer, the business has every right to ask WIFM - what's in it for me?
