Education as a strategy, not just a benefit

Offering education benefits to your employees does more than make them happy. It has long term implications for success and a measurable ROI.

UpSkill Workforce

The skills gap is real, but it's not just technical. The modern workforce needs to be trained in problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaboration. Project-based degrees programs target just that.

Prepare your workforce for today's work and tomorrow's technology.

Create a pathway towards promotion for those who want it most.

Offer degree programs that map towards your own industry's trends.

Attract Better Talent

With numbers close to full employment, it's not easy to find good people to help grow your business. Education benefits will help you compete and become an employer of choice.

Make your benefits a highlight for current and future employees.

Create a positive social brand while fostering employee loyalty.

Degrees for Working Adults

Competency Based Education (CBE) is accredited and based on real outcomes, but it's different than other online degrees.

Flexible Pace: Don't sacrifice work time to make a school deadline.

Online: Students can work from anywhere, 24/7.

Project-Based: Employees apply their experience to progress quickly.

A Simple, Self Service Education Partnership

Most universities won't partner with a 5-person company, but SNHU's Workforce Partnerships creates a way for companies from 5 to 50,000 to offer quality education benefits at an affordable price. Here's how you get started.

Sign Up & Confirm

An owner, executive, or HR/Learning leader should go through the 5-minute sign up process, starting with the form above.

Review Toolkit

After the signup process, we'll share a marketing and best practices toolkit with ways to share the program with everything you need to get started and share internally.

Champion Your Employees

Education benefits only work when employees take advantage of them. We'll give you tips and tools to help you get the word out.

In the background, we'll be setting up a page where your colleagues can apply, enroll, and speak to a student advisor.
For enterprise companies with over 10,000 employees please call 603-665-7317.
