Tuition Reimbursement Program Surpasses $1M Mark

0913 We’ve talked a lot about how our Company places an emphasis on ensuring that our Colleagues have the skills they need to serve our Customers and grow in their careers. That assertion is not just lip-service; in addition to the hundreds of classes offered on-site each year by our nationally recognized training department, American Fidelity also has reimbursed Colleagues for more than $1 million in tuition costs since the program began in 2004. Nearly 200 Colleagues already have benefited from the program, and many more are enrolled in classes now and will continue to receive reimbursements to help them improve their skills and earn their degrees. Our Colleagues say they may have never finished their degrees without the program, or it would have taken so much longer. Here are some comments from them.
  • The tuition reimbursement program allowed me to finish my degree on my timeframe without going into debt to do it. Without the program, I would probably still be wishing I had my degree; now I have a beautiful diploma on my wall! – Tracy Bain, technical infrastructure analyst
  • The AFA tuition reimbursement program has helped me tremendously. It has helped pay for my tuition, which is something I couldn’t afford on my own. Going back to school has allowed me to work on my career goals and to also give myself a sense of accomplishment. – Krista Thompson, Customer service representative
  • The tuition reimbursement program was the final push I needed to go back to school. I am so grateful to AFA for investing in me and making it possible for me to continue my formal education. My college courses helped me hone my communication, problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. A liberal education prepares us for dealing with diversity, change and complexity. – Paula Liotine, process improvement team leader
In addition to tuition reimbursement, American Fidelity makes it easier to take classes by offering them on-site! We partner with Oklahoma City Community College for the Degree at Work program. We are so proud of the Colleagues who have worked hard to improve their skills! How do you make sure to continue your education throughout a career?
