Tuition.io, the leading platform for employee student loan contributions, welcomes Jeni Burckart as the Senior Director of Healthcare. In the newly created position, Jeni will lead initiatives and product development in healthcare to help Tuition.io clients tackle the growing student loan crisis. She will educate program participants on repayment strategies and empower them with tools to ensure a more secure financial future.
In order to deliver quality healthcare for all Americans, the U.S. will need to hire 2.3 million new healthcare workers by 2025 to adequately take care of its aging population.
“The healthcare industry is facing a growing crisis stemming from unprecedented turnover and attrition rates largely due to the effects of student debt, and is desperately searching for more meaningful solutions to attract and retain their employees,” said Scott Thompson, CEO of Tuition.io. “Today, Tuition.io’s current healthcare partners have seen a significant reduction in employee turnover, ranging from 21-48 percent. Jeni’s healthcare background coupled with her own personal student debt experience and passion for helping others, will help our clients increase employee retention and find the best solution to this crisis. She is a one-of-a-kind trifecta and we are lucky to have her on the Tuition.io team.”
Jeni, a licensed pharmacist and a prominent student loan expert, who has experienced first-hand the traumas of student debt, brings a deep understanding of the problems healthcare professionals face. She understands how staffing shortages and high turnover rates are exacerbated by the burden of student loans. Demonstrating her commitment to this growing issue, Jeni recently authored “Repayable,” a guidebook on how to demolish student debt and make savvier financial decisions when repaying student loans.
“Having experienced firsthand the devastating effects student loans had on my finances and the onslaught of costly mistakes made while paying them back, I look forward to making a difference with Tuition.io,” said Jeni Burckart, Senior Director of Healthcare at Tuition.io. “I’m eager to join such an innovative and conscientious company to help tackle the massive pain points that arise from the student debt crisis. At Tuition.io, we are 100 percent ready to help healthcare companies face their staffing crises. It’s imperative we address this obstacle as it will dramatically affect the quality and cost of healthcare for all Americans.”
