Now Hiring, With Attractive New Perk: Free College Degree
Kelsey Gee, The Wall Street Journal
Some of America’s largest companies are proposing that a good job can lead to a free college education, reversing the norm that requires workers to get the degree before launching a career.
Walt Disney Co., Discover Financial Services, and Yum Brands Inc.'s Taco Bell are among the high-profile employers sending front-line workers back to school, often paying the cost of tuition, fees, books, and other expenses upfront and in full. The companies say the benefits of a content and potentially better-trained staff outweigh the costs.
