Denver, CO (April 17, 2017) – Guild Education, which helps companies offer education as a benefit to their employees, was recently named as one of Employee Benefit News’ 21 Benefits Technology Innovators in 2017. Guild Education CEO Rachel Carlson joins a distinguished group of visionaries, entrepreneurs, and benefits experts helping employers tackle age-old challenges such as recruitment, retention, and employee satisfaction with new and innovative approaches to employee benefits.

Guild Education offers the nation’s first comprehensive education benefits platform, with programs that help employers attract, retain, and develop talent.
