Most companies want to know that their employees are well educated and ready to face the technological changes presented by the world. Sometimes, this means giving training to your existing employees. Education benefits can go well beyond this, though.
A typical education benefit program involves the company paying for all or part of the employee's tuition. The amount paid by the company usually hinges on the performance of the worker as a student; the more dedicated workers are more likely to participate. The employer will usually make accommodations for the employee's class schedule.
The obvious benefit of an educated worker is that the worker has greater skills. Such workers are also more likely to have greater loyalty to the employer. They are less likely to leave while still in school because of the value of the education benefit. It is also common for the benefit to be tied to a contract requiring the employee to stay a specific amount of time after completing the degree.
Education benefits also help companies to recruit ambitious, hard working employees who value education. That gives you an edge when recruiting. Many companies require that a person be employed there for a specified amount of before giving the education benefits. This gives them a chance to verify the worker's future with the company before investing resources.
