Many employees who have advanced their education through tuition assistance programs report that their job satisfaction, efficiency, quality and productivity were positively influenced, and that the knowledge they acquired was useful in their jobs, according to a recent survey in the United States.
More than 86 per cent of the 2,000 respondents reported that employee satisfaction, efficiency, quality and productivity were positively influenced by their participation in a tuition assistance program, found the Tuition Assistance Value Study, conducted by EdLink, the ROI Institute and Capella University.
In addition, more than 94 per cent of the respondents reported that the knowledge they acquired was useful to their jobs.
More than 96 per cent of the respondents reported that the education they received through their tuition assistance programs was valuable and a good use of their organizations’ resources. Additionally, 77 per cent of respondents reported that the program was the reason they pursued furthering their academic/professional development.
“This study provides quantifiable measures and insights into the value of tuition assistance investments, and it demonstrates the impact a tuition program can have for an organization and the development of its workforce,” said John Zappa, CEO of EdLink.
