Partnering with Employers

Corporations face shortages of highly qualified applicants, especially in such areas as healthcare, data science, computer science, and teaching. They struggle to retain their best people, and to create a culture of learning.Noodle  fills the gap that assures employers reactively fill talent gaps and meet learning and development needs. We do this by working closely with our partner universities to provide solutions that are innovative, cost-effective, and excellent. Using online and hybrid instruction, Noodle can address workforce gaps globally and locally.

Education to
Drive Recruiting

Through our network, your university can help companies create a steady flow of well-educated, diverse new employees, simply and efficiently. In a Scholars program, your applicants and current students can apply for a scholarship; once accepted, they will pay no tuition or fees for their education, and have an excellent guaranteed job with the partner company upon graduation. Each quarter they work for the company, a portion of their debt will be automatically paid off.  

Our scholars program helps students avoid decades of college debt, while making your university more accessible and forging bonds with leading employers.

Stiff competition for professionals with in-demand skills isn’t likely to ease. So, it’s likely you’ll need to invest more in growing at least some talent in-house. (Forbes)

Education to
Increase Retention

Corporations have discovered that funding higher education for employees raises retention and performance in a tax-efficient and easily measured way. Unfortunately, some of the leading education-as-a-benefit providers today take 30% of tuition to help you reach those corporations.

Working with two leading providers of education as a benefit (EdAssist from Bright Horizons and Workforce Edge from SEI), Noodle efficiently brings your programs to more companies and their employees.

Education to
Support Upskilling

The need for lifelong learning is large and growing, and no one is better equipped to help meet this need than great universities. Learners and companies alike subscribe to third-party platforms to find and take courses, but those platforms dilute the learning environment to a passive experience with little support or engagement— which explains why under 5% of their students complete their courses. Further, these platforms take up to 65% of the tuition revenue and most of the data.

Noodle is launching a new platform to solve these problems. It supports students with counselors and TAs to better reflect a true university environment, creates a more social learning experience, while returning more of tuition to professors and universities. Learn more.

As Noodle includes more companies and lifelong learners in our network, we will continue to help our university partners extend their reach and lower their marketing and recruiting costs. With our shared commitment to building online and hybrid programs of high quality, in turn, we can increasingly help those companies and learners achieve great things.
