“Who is Edcor”: this question has been posed in different shapes and forms to me since the time I took reigns as the CEO and Owner.
When business leaders ask me this question, they do not want to know about Edcor’s history or services, they already have that information. What they really want to know is about the evolving landscape of business operations at Edcor, the ethos and values systems that we embody, and what’s unique about us. They want to know if we can understand their workforce management needs or motivations behind including Education benefits in the employee-benefits portfolio. I hope to answer some of these questions in the lines below; already knowing that we’ll be bigger, stronger, and better even before this reaches the intended audience because that’s the pace at which progress happens at Edcor.
Edcor is both dynamic and dependable. Through the years we have demonstrated impeccable industry knowledge and worked with agility in developing our technology, operations, business processes, and organizational culture. All that while keeping client needs and ethical code of conduct as the focal point.
The subsequent question is: How is Edcor different from the crowd?
Foremost, education is a passion at Edcor – reflected in our industry-high graduation rates. Second, Education benefits administration is our sole focus, not another offshoot or a business line; making us the industry’s most loved provider. Third, Edcor is a women-owned and run organization certified by WBENC (Women’s Business Enterprise National Council), and an ardent proponent of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I). We care for each client’s culture and values and deliver agile solutions that suit them best. Our Debt-free educational solutions, targeting women and the diverse workforces, enhance the Inclusiveness quotient of brands that work with us. Being a full-service third-party education benefits provider, the support clients and their employees receive at Edcor is unparalleled. Another unique offering is our Fraud detection and prevention program, which helps clients alleviate risks and program misuse. Our reporting is robust and we are known for our work in developing roadmaps for program growth and utilization.
A third question is usually about my learnings in the industry through various business cycles. I can tell you this; the challenges that presented themselves in the past two years – marked by unprecedented events impacting economies globally – have offered a few of the most valuable lessons to me and corporate America at large. It is to nurture the workforce by allowing them the space they need to grow and prosper in your organization.
In the past two years, we saw both a severe slump and an exponential growth in programs. Education benefits – be it Tuition Reimbursement, Student Loan Repayment Assistance, Scholarships, or Academic Advising – played a vital role in employee engagement and retention and were heavily adopted by both existing clients who expanded their programs and corporates that didn’t have these programs. Edcor played a vital part in their growth owing to our 40+ years of experience in the industry.
So, Let’s future together!
