    Synchrony CEO Margaret Keane aims to ensure that employees are trained (and retrained) as the needs of the financial services firm evolve. The company provides reskilling opportunities for its workers that include career planning, technology skill development, and access to mentorships to ensure that employees can advance within the organization. In addition, Synchrony offers a tuition-reimbursement benefit of $24,000 a year for full-time workers and up to $9,000 for part-timers. “This creates the environment in which it is easy to want to work for Synchrony long-term,” raves one employee.
