Employer Tuition Reimbursement Offered by Vast Majority
Eighty-five percent of employers report that their organization offers tuition assistance to their employees, according to a recent survey of Tuition Assistance plan practices by BLR. This is a significant increase over the 52% of employers who reported having such a plan in late 2007.

This increase in companies providing tuition was accompanied by a narrowing of the most common employer tuition reimbursement pre-requisites, however. Virtually all (96%) organizations offering tuition assistance in the current survey require verification of the grade earned, compared with 50% having that requirement in 2007. Similarly, 76% of companies require the course to be job related, as compared to 47% which had this requirement in late 2007.

The survey, which garnered nearly 1,100 responses, was conducted by BLR's HR Daily Advisor in August-September, 2010.
