25 Companies That Offer Learning Opportunities to Help You Grow

Boosted productivity, employee engagement, and loyalty—these are some of the research-backed reasons companies benefit from providing learning opportunities. According to research from Salesforce, more than 70 percent of knowledge workers say having more opportunities for workplace learning would make them more productive and engaged, and two-thirds of respondents say they’re more likely to stay with a company that invests in their growth. 

But what are the reasons you might want to look for an employer that provides learning opportunities? For starters, education can be expensive. In 2023, the average cost of college in the United States is $35,551 per student per year—and keeping costs low almost always requires that you know exactly what you want to do right out of high school, which, in truth, is unlikely to happen. According to our research, 73 percent of women want to change careers. Having an employer that will help you explore new opportunities and career options can save you time and money in the long run and gives you the flexibility to change your mind, which is a gift.

Learning opportunities such as mentorships, education platforms, upskilling programs, conferences, and more provide career-safe ways for you to see what’s out there, even and especially if you’re not sure what your next steps should be, and they can open doors to higher paying careers and leadership positions. 

We scoured companies on InHerSight to find some of the unique learning opportunities offered at our employer partners. These are some of the coolest educational benefits available at hiring companies right now.
