Employee Purchase Program's Learning Solutions Adds Healthcare Bundle
ATLANTA, Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Healthcare organizations now can provide a voluntary employee benefit that helps healthcare professionals fund their professional development needs. Purchasing Power's employee purchase program recently added healthcare education and certification courses to its Learning Solutions line of online education which is offered as a voluntary benefit at the workplace.
The StraighterLine online healthcare courses offered by Purchasing Power include opportunities for billers and coders, health information management (HIM) professionals and nurses to satisfy educational requirements, meet certifications and advance their careers.
"As part of our goal to provide life-enhancing products and services that power our customers to a better life, Purchasing Power added healthcare bundles to our Learning Solutions line," says Richard Carrano, President and CEO, Purchasing Power. "Furthering their education can be a struggle for some employees and by offering these career development opportunities through Purchasing Power's Learning Solutions, employees have a way to accomplish their educational needs through easy payroll deduction," he adds.
Specifically, the healthcare-focused courses can do the following for healthcare employees:
Even if employers offer tuition reimbursement, employees have to come up with initial upfront costs and then receive reimbursement after completing the course. With Learning Solutions, employees have the initial enrollment fees provided and then pay it back over a 12-month period.
All StraighterLine courses are online and self-guided so employees aren't tied to being at class at a specific time every week and they can work at their own pace.
Among the other Learning Solutions offerings through Purchasing Power's employee purchase program are college courses for first-year and catch-up college degree programs, SAT/ACT prep and tutoring courses, professional certification courses, and high school and career diplomas (such as auto repair technician, physical therapy aide and residential electrician).
Learning Solutions programs are offered at competitive prices which the employee pays for over 12 months of payroll deductions. Offered through the workplace as a voluntary benefit, an employee purchase program promotes disciplined purchasing through manageable payments and pre-set spending limits and controls to prevent over-spending.
"Being able to obtain college courses and other educational services through an employee purchase program as a voluntary benefit at the workplace is a winning solution for both employees and employers alike," Carrano adds. "Employees can invest in their future and advance their career. Employers can provide an additional employee benefit that helps meet their recruitment and retention strategies at no additional cost," he explains.
