At Atria, the dreams and aspirations of employees are not only encouraged – they’re financially supported.
Atria’s tuition reimbursement program has provided more than $4.9 million to employees to continue their education at accredited colleges and universities.
The program was designed to help motivated individuals – those with a passion for their current career track – match their ambition with increased skills, industry knowledge and degrees.
“It’s interesting, lifelong learning is a core tenet of our Engage Life program; for years it’s been part of a well-rounded life for residents,” says Paige Burkey, Director of Benefits. “With tuition reimbursement, employees unlock the same benefits – and advance their careers at the same time.”
Full-time Atria employees are eligible to receive 100% tuition reimbursement, up to a maximum of $5,250 each calendar year, for up to 12 credit hours per semester at an accredited college or university.
One such employee is Samantha, an Administrative Assistant at Coterie Hudson Yards, an Atria brand.
Encouraged by her colleagues, Samantha continued her academic development with an eye on her future goals.
“I got to use my skill set in my present role while pursuing a degree in Human Resources Management to open new possibilities,” she says. “I feel like the universe spoke to me.”
From accounting and human resources to graphic design and computer science – the diversity of programs pursued reflects the wide range of talents that drive an Atria community.
For employees and employers, Atria’s tuition reimbursement program is a win-win.
“The goal is for employees to take charge of their own careers path, but the company gains from it as well,” Burkey says. “We want employees with fresh insights and a competitive edge. It’s mutually beneficial.”
Atria’s Employee Value Proposition – the promises made to each employee – states: We cultivate the diverse talents of our team members to achieve something together that we could not do alone.
The tuition reimbursement program is one example of this commitment and demonstrates how Atria offers more than a job – it offers pathways to foster your potential.
