GEDWorks™ Employer Update

The GEDWorks program is growing and so is the number of graduates earning their credential with the help of their employer.

To date almost 4,000 GED graduates have benefitted from the support of the GEDWorks program. This aligns with the increasing number of employers that are signing up to give their workers access to a no-cost GED credential.

Epi Breads and Bell’s Brewery are the latest two employers to partner with GED Testing Service. Epi Breads is a large scale bakery with locations in Georgia, Texas and Michigan.  Bell’s Brewery is a regional craft brewery that employs more than 550 people over a 39 state area.

Over 20 national employers are now offering the GEDWorks program. These companies represent various industries including food service, retail, manufacturing, hospitality, media and transportation. Some of these employers include:

Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut, Jiffy Lube, Scholastic, Penguin Random House, Sheetz, The Cheesecake Factory, Total Wine and More, Royal Cup, The Texas Department of Transportation, Brinker International (Maggiano’s Little Italy & Chili’s Bar and Grill), Benchmark Electronics, Southeastern Grocers (BI-LO, Fresco y Más, Harvey’s and Winn-Dixie), Red Roof Inn and Walmart.

Pearson and the American Council on Education (parent companies of GED Testing Service) have also started offering the GEDWorks benefit to employees and eligible family members.

As more companies join the GEDWorks family, we encourage you to tell your students about these employers and how they can enroll in the GEDWorks program.

The full list of participating employers and more information about the program is available here.

  1. How could I go about getting a manufacturing business in my community interested in offering this program to their employees. They have stopped hiring new people because they do not have their GED.
    The business has over 150-200 employee and are always looking for good people to work. People in 7 counties work at this plant. I would like to learn more.
    Thanks
