Boeing is introducing two new services for eligible U.S.-based employees: backup child and elder care, and student loan and college planning support.

These new services, which are offered through Bright Horizons and Tuition.io respectively, are now part of the growing suite of programs dedicated to supporting employees and their families.

“As a company, it’s important to us that we continue offering programs that will not only benefit our employees, but also their family members,” said Jon Fliss, vice president of Boeing Total Rewards. “Bright Horizons and Tuition.io provide services that employees asked for, and we are happy to continue to support our employees’ unique family and financial needs.”

Bright Horizons care, a new service that connects employees to a network of licensed backup child and elder care services when regular services fall through, is offered by Boeing at subsidized rates.

Care providers are background checked, on-boarded and trained by Bright Horizons to ensure the highest safety standards. Bright Horizons also provides additional family support resources, including tools for standard child care and other home needs, as well as exclusive discounts for tutoring, college test prep and a network of child care centers. Finding a sitter to watch your child while they are sick at home or finding in-home care to help your family member around the house following surgery are just two examples of how employees can use Bright Horizons.

Boeing is also offering access to tools and resources available through Tuition.io, a nationally recognized provider of comprehensive student loan and college planning solutions.

“It’s no secret that — like millions of other people in the United States — Boeing employees and their family members are impacted by rising college costs and student loan debt holdings,” said Fliss. “Tuition.io will give employees access to an array of services and tools that can help them better manage their education expenses.”

Tuition.io lets participants track existing student loan debt across multiple lenders, model long-term repayment strategies and get educational information and coaching to help prepare for future college expenses.
