Our employee educational assistance program helps employees further their development by successfully completing approved courses of study that benefit both the employee and the company. Reimbursement for approved courses will be based upon the full letter grade received (A: 90%, B: 80%, C: 70%), or evidence of satisfactory completion if a letter grade is not issued. Employees requesting reimbursement from the program must sign a Repayment Agreement. The Repayment Agreement states that you agree to remain employed with FirstEnergy for two years after you have finished taking classes.
Adoption assistance is available to all employees who have legally adopted a child under age 18 who is not the birth child of the employee’s spouse. The maximum amount eligible for reimbursement per successful adoption in a calendar year is $2,500.
Employee Assistance Program
Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) helps employees with day-to-day matters and life events. As such, our EAP is designed to provide a reliable, easily accessible and confidential source of information, resources, services and support. From online resources to confidential telephone consultations to referrals and licensed behavioral health professionals, the EAP can help employees make the changes necessary to reduce stress, strengthen relationships and improve the overall quality of their life.
Our employee discounts program complements our existing benefit packages and helps stretch an employee’s budget. The program offers discounts at local businesses as well as nationally recognized stores, restaurants, vacation spots, cruises and more.
