Tyson Foods will increase their tuition benefits to cover free college for all U.S. employees.

Reported by Higher Ed Dive, this expansion will include free tuition, books, and fees for 175 programs from more than 35 universities. These programs are largely focused on foundational priorities for the organization, including agriculture, supply chain and operations, and manufacturing – ensuring their employees’ upskilling provides a direct and immediate benefit to the org as well.

The takeaway? More and more employers are providing a sponsored route toward degree completion, all while the student has the ability to earn full- or part-time compensation as well.

At what tipping point does this pathway become a graduating high school senior’s primary one?
