HelloFresh Partners with Kaplan to Provide Free GED Prep for Hourly Workers to Earn High School Equivalency Diploma
New York, NY (March 15, 2023) — HelloFresh, the world’s leading meal kit company, has announced a new partnership with global educational services provider Kaplan. The partnership will provide GED courses, with zero out-of-pocket cost, for all HelloFresh hourly workers who want to earn their high school-equivalency diploma. Eligible employees can choose from either Kaplan’s self-paced GED course or its live online course offering, the only official live online preparation for the GED test.
“At HelloFresh, we believe that learning never stops, which means we continuously invest in our employees and look to provide opportunities where our employees can grow, both personally and professionally,” said Elu Lawrence, vice president of people at HelloFresh. “Thanks to our supportive partners at Kaplan, we’re able to expand educational access for our employees by providing multiple learning environments to choose from.”
Students will have access to both live and recorded class sessions that they can attend from their phone, tablet, home computer, and even access while on break at the job. Kaplan classes include 60-90 minute sessions covering concepts in math, reasoning through language arts (RLA), science, and social studies that test takers need to know to succeed.
“By providing this potentially life-changing benefit to its employees, HelloFresh is sending a strong message that they value education, recognize the importance of investing in their employees, and understand the opportunities for advancement that a high school equivalency diploma brings,” said Poonum Sidhu, executive director of enterprise learning solutions, Kaplan. “Kaplan is incredibly proud to work with HelloFresh and we hope that their efforts will inspire other employers to similarly invest in adult learners."
According to GED Testing Service®, 97 percent of all colleges and employers across the United States accept the GED credential. Since its inception in 1942, more than 20 million people have earned their GED; and GED graduates can earn on average $9,000 more a year than those without a GED.
