Every day, we see firsthand how reading expands a child’s horizons. Our belief that all children should have access to books both at school and at home - leads us to participate in literacy initiatives across the nation.
At Knowledge Universe, we strive to build an array of benefits that will keep you and your family healthy and provide you with security through our health, wellness, life insurance, disability, and retirement plans.

Retirement Savings Plan
KU offers employees an excellent opportunity to save for retirement through the company’s retirement plan options. KU is dedicated to assisting our employees in reaching their retirement goals through the employer match program and the comprehensive selection of investment fund offerings.
Pre-tax benefit programs are designed to help control the financial cost of benefits for employees by deducting premiums before taxes are calculated on pay. This reduces the taxable income and increases take-home pay. The programs included are medical, pharmacy, dental, vision, and health flexible spending accounts (HFSA).
Work/Life Balance Programs
KU understands employee’s may need time away from work to rest and rejuvenate, to attend to personal, family, medical and/or other issues, as well as to celebrate holidays. That’s why we offer a competitive time off package including vacation, paid personal time, holiday pay, bereavement, and jury duty. KU also offers a free employee assistance program (EAP) to employees and their immediate family, health, and wellness programs and substantial employee discounts including childcare, preschool services, extended learning programs, and many more.
At KU, nurturing an appetite for learning is at the core of who we are. We also understand that education enriches our personal and professional lives beyond measure. All full-time and part-time employees are eligible for Education Assistance with a calendar year maximum.
