    Big data offers path forward for retention initiatives

    Only about half of students who enroll in a post-secondary program actually graduate in six years, but big data offers an opportunity to tailor retention programs to unique student populations.

    A Retention Equation That Really Adds Up

    We've been talking quite a bit about retention lately, and for good reason: Not enough college students are being retained from term-to-term, and year-to-year. The statistics are alarming. The good news, however, is that higher education is starting to put the strategies in place to turn these metrics around and help more students succeed.

Helix Education – Why Work For Us?


WITH AN UNPRECEDENTED LEVEL OF TRANSPARENCY AND COMMITMENT TO COLLABORATION, WE ARE REDEFINING EXPECTATIONS FOR THE WAY HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS AND PARTNER COMPANIES WORK TOGETHER.

BIG CHALLENGES

We understand the serious challenges facing higher education – namely a shift in student demographics, a seemingly chaotic approach to data management, inefficient insights, and restrictive vendor relationships – and know there is a need for bigger, better, and bolder solutions.

BOLD SOLUTIONS

We are the only partner giving educators an opportunity to break away, disrupting this traditional landscape. With four decades of higher education experience as Helix Education, combined with our team’s 280 years of higher education leadership, we are revolutionizing the way institutions innovate, adapt, and thrive in today’s marketplace. The way in which we deliver enterprise services, integrated marketing, and transformative technologies empowers institutions to Find, Enroll, Retain, and Teach the right students for the right programs while leveraging data across the student lifecycle to optimize the cost of graduation.

BOLD SOLUTIONS FOR BIG CHALLENGES.

We’ve been on the road meeting with colleges and universities to truly understand the challenges that they face.

We listened, we empathized, we took action.

Uncovering these challenges has been the catalyst for building the boldest set of solutions in higher education, marking the on-ramp for what’s to come.

We are proud to be the only partner disrupting the legacy models and approaches that are failing higher education.


CURRENT OPENINGS

Helix Education is a multi-disciplined marketing agency, and we’re always in search of new talent.

Whether it’s for new creative blood, some big brains for our Business Intelligence group, strategic types for Media and Client Services, the uber-organized for Production Management, or the latest in tech genius for our IT Department, we’re constantly looking for the best and brightest.

COLLABORATION MATTERS AT HELIX EDUCATION

Working together, we accomplish more. We learn more. We push ourselves further. We produce great work. And get better results.

Collaboration is what makes our fun, relaxed, and supportive work environment possible. And that attitude extends beyond the office. Utah is a hiking, biking, skiing, boarding kind of state.

So while we encourage our employees to work hard, we also want them to work smart, and enjoy time with friends and family.

VALUES & BELIEFS

At Helix Education, we champion three key values:

  • BOLD – We empower our teams to create and deliver innovative solutions.
  • DRIVEN – We realize our vision through a passionate commitment to action.
  • AUTHENTIC – We are grounded in integrity, transparency and accountability.

WE GIVE BACK

Helix Education annually supports charities ranging from local food banks and education-focused groups to national causes like the MS 100 bike race. We’re committed to the concept of community and our employees enthusiastically contribute their various talents to benefit their neighbors across the street or across the country.

    I have been working at Helix Education full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I wake up every morning wanting to go to work, and I leave every day thinking about what I can accomplish tomorrow. I'm fortunate enough to see the real life effects of my decisions on the company, and one can easily tell how much effort the company put into making sure employees feel happy and driven.

    Also, This company is in rapid growth phase. There are a lot of promotions going around, and it seems there are new people on a regular basis.

    Cons

    You are not going to sleep a whole lot. Welcome to the world of real responsibility where you are expected to contribute to a group of industry experts. I'm serious. Most people who work here have more than a decade of experience. I would not recommend this company for people who are not, "Team Players."

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keepen on. Maintain high standards throughout the company. Hire more good people. I wish there was a little more focus on collaboration tools like screen sharing, and a little less meetings.
