The entrepreneurial spirit of our founders established a distinct culture of growth within UPS from the very beginning. Today, we continue to promote that culture by empowering our people to grow professionally and intellectually.
Our enterprise-wide learning management system, UPS University, helps employees develop and hone skills that will help them achieve success in their roles within the company. Employees can access a full library of on-demand online courses, and continue to explore traditional and non-traditional methods for delivering consistent training to UPSers around the world.
In the US, full-time employees are eligible to receive tuition assistance for higher education. We also empower part-time employees to further develop their careers by advancing their education through UPS’s Earn and Learn Program. The program is currently offered at 90 UPS locations nationwide and offers $5,250 per calendar year, up to a total of $25,000 in assistance.
Through this program and our partnerships with various educational institutions, UPS provided more than $15 million in tuition support to 7,868 UPSers in 2013.
