Papa John's is the latest in a long line of companies to partner with colleges and universities to upskill current employees, attract new hires, and increase the knowledge base of their staff.
The pizza maker recently announced a new effort with Purdue University Global designed to cover all tuition costs for its 20,000 corporate employees for undergraduate and graduate degrees earned through the online college. Some 70,000 franchise team members will benefit, as well, with "significant" tuition and fee reductions as part of the Dough & Degrees program.
