Sandy Womack, Ed.D., is a woman on a mission.
Her goal? To help organizations tackle the last bastion of unmeasured spending - the tuition assistance program. Organizations spend twenty billion dollars annually on employee education but most haven't changed their approach to learning in the last decade, laments Dr. Womack. The recession, she adds, has made CEOs and CFOs step back and take a hard look at their tuition assistance programs. Such introspection is important. After all, done right, says Dr. Womack, tuition assistance benefits both employer and employee. A veteran of higher education, she's spent more than two decades helping adult professionals select college programs, and knows well the challenges of such undertakings. Today, she is Director of Adult Education Counseling for EdAssist™, a Bright Horizons® solution at work, which offers a comprehensive managed education program that enables organizations to take a more strategic approach to tuition management. Six out of ten companies already have a learning program in place, says Dr. Womack, but many operate inefficiently. The job of EdAssist, she adds, is to look at such tuition assistance as a strategic investment rather than simply a benefit - or worse yet, a cost. "By maximizing your tuition investment," she says, "an effective tuition-management program like EdAssist will not only save you money, it will actually pay for itself." Dr. Womack advises organizations to measure and track how educational assistance impacts graduation rates, career progression, retention, and recruitment. Organizations that have adapted have seen the payoffs firsthand. Dr. Womack believes that HR professionals need to move tuition assistance to the top of their agenda. In today's economy, she says, companies are challenged to do more with less. A well-managed tuition assistance program can become a key component of an organization's employee development strategy bringing maximum impact to the organization and its employees. "A few strategic adjustments" she says, "can elevate the entire value of the program."

Enter Sandy Womack, Ed.D., director of Adult Education for EdAssist™, CHOP's new tuition program administrator.
Her job is to guide employees through the maze of options and present choices that will allow them to earn the degree they want in the least amount of time and for the best value. "Sandy let me set the parameters," Dunn says. Womack also counseled Karen Smoots, R.N., who's been at CHOP for 16 years and started working on her B.S.N. a year ago at Thomas Edison State College in New Jersey. Womack reviewed Smoots' transcripts, discussed her goals and researched alternatives. But just as important, Womack helped Smoots readjust her expectations and understand that with online learning for adults, the professor "is more of a mentor, not a teacher." "Sandy was very positive, very patient and very knowledgeable.
