Career Accelerator Program Overview

Creating opportunities through technology is what we do; it’s not who we are. We exist because we want to help people reach their potential, our Talent and Change Agents to feel valued, and our business partners to thrive. We believe everyone, especially now, needs a champion, needs to be seen, needs to feel heard, and needs to be believed in. It’s time to embrace change, transform the way we work, and intentionally create a future with opportunity in abundance.

With this in mind, we knew it was important to create a new program that would create an opportunity to accelerate growth by accelerating the learning and professional development of our in-house Change Agents and/or outside applicants.

The initiative is a Career Accelerator Program in which a limited number of selected candidates are trained by business leaders (Mentors) throughout the company to learn various business functions and skills. The program is managed by our People Lead in Human Resources (Program Manager).

Hired candidates join each team on a temporary and rotational basis to learn how a business function operates and to gain a better understanding of the value each function offers the company. Candidates gain hands-on experience by working alongside team members, performing special tasks, contributing to selected projects, and/or temporarily filling vacant positions. This program is designed to enhance and develop the knowledge, skills and abilities of participants by educating them in other programs and different types of work in order to facilitate development and growth of our workforce.

Program Conclusion
