“We were looking to make university education more accessible to our employees.”
“Agemark Senior Living is growing. Our best source of talent is our people. We want to showcase that we value and invest in their ongoing development. The partnership with Bellevue University was a natural fit. As soon as the partnership was announced, employees became enthusiastic, causing several team members to reflect and begin planning their future career goals with us.
“One particular story comes to mind: We have an employee who started with Bellevue University in the Master of Healthcare Administration degree and who voiced interest in management. During her program, an opportunity came up to be a manager. She didn’t have the experience managing people just yet, but the fact that she was in this program helped to equip her with the knowledge and foresight of leading and managing teams. During each course, she interviewed key members of our executive team to apply what she was learning in her courses. She is purposeful in her application and is using what she learned in her new management role.”
