UpSkill America is an employer-led movement to expand opportunity for America’s workers and allow our economy and communities to thrive. As part of our mission to advance the upskilling movement, we are pleased to share the following news featuring one of our partners.
Just one year since announcing a debt-free college degree benefit, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Wisconsin already has 31 employees enrolled and four graduates of the program. Operated in conjunction with College for America at Southern New Hampshire University, the benefit is available to any Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield full-time or part-time employee who works 20 or more hours per week and has been employed at least six months. Full-time employees who participate in the College for America program can earn an associate or bachelor’s degree at no cost as a result of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield’s tuition reimbursement benefit.
College for America has also expanded its degree offerings to include a Bachelor of Arts degree in Management in three concentrations – Insurance Services, Logistics and Operations, and Public Administration. College for America partners with employers to offer a competency-based, online curriculum that is engineered to help associates fit a fully-accredited college degree in the busy lives of working adults.
To date, nearly 1,600 employees of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield’s parent company are enrolled in the program nationwide and 92 degrees awarded. Click here to read more.
We are delighted with this announcement and commend Gap Inc. for joining a growing list of companies committed to advancing the upskilling movement.
