Intermountain Healthcare has launched a strategic workforce education program to invest in the development of their employees and communities.

Intermountain employees now have access to tuition paid upfront for a wide variety of online degrees, credentials, and diplomas for in-demand and future skills. Now, new employees joining the health systems also have immediate access to education opportunities.

In addition to courses for frontline medical and nursing personnel, Intermountain is offering education programs for non-clinical employees.

Since last October, Intermountain's employees have had access to prepaid courses and degrees in the subject of their choice from the top-rated academic network of accredited institutions that include Arizona State University, CUNY, University of Virginia, University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Memphis.

Utah Valley University and the College of Southern Idaho also offer Intermountain-specific courses, with more regional schools scheduled to add courses in the future.

"Education provides meaningful career growth for our caregivers and is the foundation on which our organization, and our communities, can build lasting success," said Heather Brace, Intermountain Chief People Officer. "At Intermountain, we believe we must invest in developing a diverse workforce, and that means providing robust educational opportunities at all levels of our organization. This initiative will help break down barriers to equitable education by providing language, high school, and certification and degree options for all employees."
