Investing in Our Future, One Employee at a Time
To give our Employees opportunities to gain the knowledge and expertise they need to help build the future of Southwest, we introduced a Tuition Reimbursement Program in 2016, that provides opportunities for professional development, continuing education, and skills training.
Through this benefit, full-time Employees may be eligible for up to a $5,000 reimbursement annually for graduate degrees and a $2,500 reimbursement annually for undergraduate degrees and certifications.
“Finding out about the new Tuition Reimbursement Program was the best news ever, because it meant I won’t need a student loan to finish up my education,” said Carolina Sierra, Orlando Station Services Coordinator.
“As a first-generation college student, it is an honor to represent my family, and I strive to make them proud,” said Carolina. “Southwest is supporting this opportunity, allowing me to continue my path to success by offering financial support.”
“This benefit is a real life-changer for many of us and another example of Southwest going the extra mile to take care of its Employees,” said Carolina.
Tuition reimbursement is just one way we invest in our Employees. We’re proud to offer a comprehensive Total Rewards Package that includes profitsharing, retirement plans, health, wellness, training, travel, and other benefits. See a complete list of our benefits here.
