CHOP was recently honored with a “Regional Challenge Award” presented by Talent Greater Philly.
Talent Greater Philly was established in 2010 by regional educational institutions, trade associations, and employers to promote the pursuit of post-secondary education amongst the Greater Philadelphia workforce. Every year, the organization conducts its “Regional Challenge” to honor those institutions which work to achieve this educational development objective.
A member of Talent Greater Philly remarked that “The Regional Challenge Honorees are models for other businesses and institutions in [the Philadelphia region] who are motivated to invest in an educated workforce.”
CHOP won for its Education Assistance Program (EAP), which was created over a decade ago to encourage employees to advance their education. Within EAP, a team of highly experienced education consultants work directly with employees to provide assistance with educational plans, financial aid and scholarships.
