Finally, a little good news. Today's post is not about a fraud or a fool, but sometimes you just have to spread good cheer. Fidelity Investments is offering employees student loan reimbursement as a perk!
They haven't worked out the details yet, but they recently announced this new benefit. Here's hoping it catches on to other companies soon!
If I were cynical, and I am, I would say they are doing it because the job market is getting tighter. Giving this benefit as an incentive to stick around is cheaper for the company than deal with high turnover.
Whatever their reason, whoever had this idea at Fidelity deserves a nice cold beer. And may the idea spread to other companies soon.
