Tuition Reimbursement programs are often considered simply a check-mark employee benefit, with little attention paid to whether a company gets any value from the money spent. But Learning and Development organizations are getting more involved in these programs, and asking questions about them. In response, Corporate University Xchange (CorpU) recently completed a detailed study of tuition reimbursement practices and will share some of those results. John Zappa, from the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL), and Marcia Dresner, from CorpU, will talk about the missed opportunities in today’s programs, and some of the ways that the most successful programs are reshaping themselves into strategic assets.
