Every Company That Pays For College

Benefits programs are mutually helpful for the employee and employer. The company foots the bill for a program that makes for healthier, happier, or more educated employees, which makes for a more productive company. 

We’ve already covered some companies that are thinking uniquely about the benefits they offer their employees like four-day work weeks, permanent remote work, home office stipends, and paid sabbaticals

Today, we’ve searched far and wide to provide every company that offers a college tuition reimbursement program for their employees.

 

Looking for a flexible job at a company that thinks differently?
