Rogers Tuition reimbursement made easier06/20/18 03:18:pm
Rogers believes in helping employees pursue new education opportunities to support their current role or advance to a new one. To provide additional assistance, the tuition reimbursement process has changed, making it easier for both managers and those continuing their education.
According to Amy Schraeder, manager of total rewards, the changes were made to “make the process easier and less cumbersome, eliminate paperwork, and spark a discussion between staff and their Manager about individual and educational goals.”
Some of the most notable changes to the policy include:
- Proof of class registration is no longer required.
- A check request is no longer needed.
- Documentation can now be sent to HR/Total Rewards or Payroll after successful completion of the course.
Under the tuition reimbursement program, .75 FTE and greater employees who are taking a nursing-related course can receive $5,000 per calendar year, or $3,000 for non-nursing related courses. Those under .75 FTE and pool employees are also able to receive reimbursement. Visit the tuition reimbursement page on Rogers Connect for full details.
Courses that were previously approved using the old policy should continue with that process for reimbursement. Questions can be directed to HR support at x1848 or HRsupport@rogershospital.org.
