Mercy Health System in Janesville, Wis., pays up to $3,000 per employee for college tuition, and $1,000 more if the employee works with an in-house mentor for up to three years.
HR matches up mentors and employees. They meet at regularly scheduled times and attend counseling sessions. The mentor offers career advice, help with homework and moral support, says Heather Niles, director of HR operations.
About 100 of the system’s 3,800 employees are in the mentor program, which accepts 10 new “students” every year from among employees who work at least 20 hours a week.
“Employees in this program receive individual attention, career counseling and mentorship, which they might not get as a regular student,” said Niles, who noted that mentor-colleagues help expose their students to the organization in a way an outside counselor couldn’t.
