10 Practices to Maximize Your Tuition Program

Leverage tuition assistance for your talent management needs

The latest Conference Board CEO Challenge survey found that human capital is one of businesses’ top challenges. To address this challenge, organizations are leveraging their tuition assistance programs as part of their strategic talent management initiative. Employers who elevate their tuition assistance programs can accelerate educational achievement, reduce skills gaps, and build a talent and leadership pipeline.

To support these goals, EdAssist applies the Tuition Assistance Maturity Model to help organizations formulate tuition assistance programs that provide sustained value. Developed by Bersin by Deloitte, this model covers custom program development, alignment with talent management strategies, support for employee goals, and standardization of tuition assistance policies.

Automate tuition management to save time and effort

Industry benchmarks show that it typically takes one full-time employee to administer each $1.5M in annual tuition spend, and that doesn’t take into account additional resources needed to troubleshoot payment processing issues and escalate cases.

EdAssist’s automated software solution provides a comprehensive review of grades and receipts, reducing administrative costs and ensuring compliance well beyond what is achievable with manual systems. This frees tuition administrators to focus on higher value tasks while improving employee experience.

Personal support to help employees make informed decisions

Organizations benefit from offering career advisory services that help adult learners map out career and educational goals. EdAssist offers personal education support that does just that. EdAssist advisors also help employees uncover ways to save money through course credits and accelerate learning pathways.
