Description

The practice of hiring job candidates only if they have a college degree is shifting. Many large businesses, like Google, Costco Wholesale and Hilton, for example, have already found the value in hiring these kinds of employees, according to Glassdoor.

In fact, hiring individuals without college degrees can help a business:

  • Boost equity
  • Round out diversity of knowledge/experience, translating into innovation and growth 
  • Save money: younger employees can work for a lower salary as the business grows

Dr. Lakeya Cherry is an executive leadership coach at Evolution, a professional coaching and leadership development company, and would welcome the opportunity to chat with you about the business benefits of hiring employees without a college degree.

Dr. Lakeya Cherry, DSW, MSSW, ACC is an executive leadership coach who has dedicated her career to the growth and development of individuals and the organizations they are a part of. As an ICF Certified Coach, a StartingBloc Fellow, a Google #IamRemarkable Facilitator, and a Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator, she believes that when leaders are empowered to reach their fullest potential, they will be able to support those around them more effectively.

It was her own experience with coaching that ignited her passion to support individuals, teams, and organizations to lead more authentically and courageously. Her former clients include Headspace, Glassdoor, LA Cleantech Incubator (LACI), Mux, Tot Squad, The Salvation Army, The California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, California Mental Health Advocates for Children, Black Administrators of Child Welfare, and the National Child Welfare Workforce Institute.

Dr. Cherry holds the title of Chief Executive Officer of The Network for Social Work Management, an international organization dedicated to strengthening and mobilizing diverse social impact leaders through education, leadership development, networking, and community-building. Under her leadership, the Network has expanded globally and introduced transformative programming that not only produced better leaders but also enhanced organizational cultures.

Her approach is informed by her Doctorate in Social Work from the University of Southern California where she was honored with the coveted Order of Arête award, her M.S. in Social Work from Columbia University, and her B.A. in Psychology and Legal Studies from the University of California at Santa Cruz.
