We make it easy to offer student loan assistance
What is Peanut Butter?
Year in and year out, companies offer incomplete benefit packages that leave employees feeling underwhelmed, with their needs unmet. We started Peanut Butter so organizations can provide the employment value proposition they need to attract, retain, and engage college-educated talent.
Millions of Americans are struggling with student debt. These debtors are among the most qualified job candidates and the most productive workers in our economy. When companies and communities provide student loan assistance, they stand out as a preferred place to work.
Why "Peanut Butter"?
What was your go-to meal in college? For many, peanut butter was the only thing they could afford to eat. Our company’s name is an homage to student debt holders everywhere.
Our effort to help every team member become free of student debt starts with recognizing all their hard work and sacrifices in order to qualify for positions.
