As an organization focused on our people, we recognize the importance of career development opportunities for the Premium family. In addition to hiring from within and continuously producing new training content within our current systems, we desired to formalize and strengthen our approach to employee development.
Introducing the University of Premium.
As Premium’s first-ever, company-wide career development program, the University of Premium is dedicated to enriching the talent of our existing employees. Whether a field or corporate team member, the University of Premium offers a wide range of accreditation and certification opportunities to further the careers of everyone at Premium. As Premium continues to grow, we want our employees to grow with us.
While the University of Premium is new and will continue to mature, we’re excited about our first few development pilots available including:
- Zone Leader Accreditation: Provides an opportunity for Premium field representatives to be short-listed for Zone Leader positions when they open.
- Field Manager Certification: Custom curriculum designed to prepare new Field Managers for their role, re-skill and certify existing Field Managers, and provide ongoing performance support throughout the year.
- Elevate Leadership Program: Courses and development activities elevating the pre-existing skills and knowledge of Premium’s future leaders.
The main goals of the University of Premium are to exceed employee expectations for career and personal development and grow Premium’s learning culture.
In tandem with the opportunities presented by the University of Premium, we also recently released the first issue of our University of Premium e-magazine. The quarterly magazine features interviews with Premium leaders, information about new development paths and programs available to Premium employees, and aims to increase the visibility of a variety of development resources – both existing and new.
In the first issue, one of Premium’s presidents David Yenzer explains that “It’s part of a company’s responsibility to develop people. To make them better than they were when we found them.”
And that’s what the University of Premium is all about – our people.
Stay tuned for more about the University of Premium and future excerpts from our University of Premium e-magazine.
