InStride is a public benefit company whose mission is to develop the workforce of the future by helping large organizations provide career-boosting, life-changing opportunities to their employees, while strengthening their competitive advantage. We believe the most enduring way for companies to do this is by starting with people.
Corporate America spends $180 billion each year on tuition assistance and corporate-sponsored training programs. Yet the vast majority of CEOs and CHROs are dissatisfied with these programs because they don’t produce the desired business results. InStride was formed to solve this problem. We design and deliver Strategic Enterprise EducationTM programs that have a lasting impact.
