LWCC partners with LSU Online to provide employees with accessible learning opportunities
LSU Online is proud to announce our partnership with Louisiana Workers' Compensation Corporation (LWCC), the largest provider of workers' compensation insurance for businesses in Louisiana. With this partnership, LWCC employees can use their tuition benefits and access a range of affordable online college credit programs from the LSU family of institutions across the state. All professional development and educational job- related programs that promote an employee’s career development may be covered by LWCC’s external training policy or tuition assistance.
Weslee Meador, Facilities Manager at LWCC, recently obtained his Post- Baccalaureate Certificate in Facilities Management offered by the LSU Bert S. Turner Department of Construction Management and LSU Online. He said “LWCC is unique in that learning is a company core value, and as such I’m always searching for ways for not only me to learn and grow, but for my team to do so as well. By completing this program, I gained a deeper understanding of many facets of facility management and building systems that I never realized I only had a surface-level understanding of before.”
LWCC is Louisiana Loyal, leading a movement to celebrate and elevate Louisiana through their core business - excellence in execution from underwriting to life-long care of injured workers and innovative initiatives that drive transformational change in Louisiana. This commitment to Louisiana includes a focus on employees’ well-being and makes it a natural fit for LSU Online’s goal of providing accessible and affordable education to working professionals.
"LWCC takes learning seriously – and that includes opportunities for employees to continue stimulating their minds and growing their personal skills and careers. Overall, we aim to celebrate and elevate Louisiana, starting right here with our employees," said Jamie Bourg, Vice President of People Operations.
“The partnership between LSU Online and LWCC highlights one of our top objectives: to expand access and opportunity in higher education for working adult learners,” said Kappie Mumphrey, Vice President of LSU Online & Continuing Education. “This partnership will provide valuable career advancement opportunities for LWCC employees and further contribute to the LSU system's greater mission.”
As a student through LSU Online, starting a career with LWCC can be an excellent opportunity for professional growth. LWCC is committed to supporting employees in their pursuit of the company’s core values – abbreviated iLWCC – which include innovation, learning, will, connections, caring, and commitment.
