Read – Executive Book Summaries “Driving Change – The UPS Approach to Business”

The UPS Way – Home Grown

Jeff Wafford, a high school baseball star, attended Maryville College in Knoxville, Tenn., on a sports scholarship.  He didn’t like the program ad decided to transfer to the Metro-College program, which allwed him to take night classes at the University of Louisville (paid for by Metro-College) before heading over to Worldport to work the 4-hour overnight shift.

Metro-College was created to attract students to UPS as part-time employees but also help them receive an education.  Wafford was able to work nights, go to classes and receive full health benefits and credit towards a future pension.

Before long, he was managing other part-timers at UPS.  Wafford currently works for UPS as a technical writer in Louisville and is one modern-day example of how UPS is a great place for people to become owners of both equity and their own futures.
