Brinker International, Inc. (NYSE:EAT) And Pearson Partner To Provide No Cost Education To Maggiano’s And Chili’s Employees



Brinker International, Inc. (NYSE:EAT) reported the release of a comprehensive educational plan, Best You EDU. In association with Pearson, this educational plan is an employer-education plan that offers opportunities for members of Brinker Team. At absolutely zero cost to participants, this educational plan is open to all firm’s Team Members who work minimum 24 hours a week with a minimum tenure of ninety days and enrollment is now open.

The buzz

Best You EDU was intended to converse with Team Members, offering three key components: Foundational, associate degrees and GED. No cost Foundational Program offers language, bilingual coaching and skills development in a mobile-first environment. Also, no cost GED Program offers web GED prep curriculum, unlimited test-approved GED credential guarantees and bilingual advisory support. No cost associate degree offers a web trail to an associate degree in general studies or business via a regionally accredited college, counting all courses, study and text materials, coaching and advising support.

Rick Badgley, the Chief People Officer at Brinker, expressed that they firmly consider that education is the exclusive best benefit they can offer to their Team Members. The assurance that education offers is what encourages their Team Members to attain the next measure in their career. “Best You EDU” is personal to him and the larger company leadership team as many of them started their careers as a cook, host or dishwasher at a restaurant. Through education, they gained the required confidence to further pursue their careers.

Kevin Capitani, the President, Pearson North America, expressed that Pearson is proud to associate with Brinker to advance a custom education plan. Only 2% to 3% of workers are in a best position to utilize employer-tuition plans because of upfront costs, problems fitting education into their occupied lives, or an absence of foundational skills. Brinker comes in the list of the few firms addressing this range of obstacles to a better life and to a better job.
