This is such awesome news.. Walmart wants to help its workers get their high school or equivalency degree. They think the new benefit will help it recruit and retain higher quality entry-level employees in a tight U.S. labor market.
Walmart is working with Guild Education to offer employees the chance to earn a bachelor’s degree in business or supply-chain management and it’ll only cost them $1 a day at one of three non-profit universities with online programs: the University of Florida, Brandman University, and Bellevue University. The retailer will subsidize the cost of tuition, books, and fees, so employees won’t need student loans.
What do you think of this idea?
