Peanut Butter was recognized as the runner-up for Chicago’s Best Tech Startup Award due to their vibrant work environment, innovative service, and their forward-thinking technology integrations. “Traditional benefits are losing relevance in today’s marketplace. We are passionate about our mission and believe that our solution to the student loan debt crunch is a game changer for employers and employees alike,” said Brian Cuttica, VP of Client Services for Peanut Butter.
Peanut Butter helps to motivate millennial employees by offering a unique solution that reduces their student debt. A win-win solution, Peanut Butter’s services also provide positive implications for employers by helping to attract valuable millennial talent, reduce employee turnover, and helping them become an employer of choice. “The cold hard facts are that by 2020, millennials will make up 50% of the US workforce. Millennials are the future leaders of America, and this generation carries an enormous amount of student loan debt. It is vital for today’s employers to create and maintain an employee value proposition that matches demand from the millennial workers who will drive these companies forward,” said Aronson. As a part of their recent millennial benefits study, Peanut Butter found that millennials strongly prefer student loan repayment over other benefits such as 401k contributions, health insurance, free food, and gym memberships.
