What are the benefits of working with the same company for most of your career? We’ve heard that job hoppers are some of the most successful people in today’s workforce because of the variety of opportunities and industry knowledge they’ve gained from each job. However, it might surprise you to know that Whitbeck Insurance offers a tremendous amount of opportunity for employees.
If you’re looking to grow and develop in your career and industry, you don’t have to be constantly searching for a new employer to achieve your goals. ERIE puts development opportunities for our employees at the forefront and offers numerous resources for employees to challenge themselves and reach beyond their full potential.
Here are six options employees have for personal development at ERIE.
Development Programs at Whitbeck Insurance
- ERIE Coaching Network: So much more than a mentor, ERIE’s Coaching Network was designed to help employees reach their development goals by meeting with a trained coach to chart a new career path, build confidence or help them succeed in a new role.
- Tuition Aid Reimbursement: Learning never stops, so we encourage our employees to be lifelong learners without the additional financial burden.
- ERIE Learning Symposium: We know the importance of learning and growing on the job. Each year we host a three-day Learning Symposium focused on ways we can reach higher in our careers. Employees can participate in learning sessions focused on insurance topics, business knowledge and soft skills at no additional cost.
- Internal Development Programs: We have an entire Learning and Development Department focused on helping employees achieve that next level of growth. We offer everything from career discovery courses that take employees back to the basics of interviewing and resume building to leadership courses designed for employees looking to explore their leadership potential.
- No-Cost Development Resources: We’ve partnered with multiple vendors to supply our employees with endless educational content, like webinars, online micro-learning resources, and instructor-led trainings. We also offer benchmark assessments that will provide employees with a baseline to improve based on their chosen development topic. Employees can even take the lead with our “Bite-Sized Learning” series where they can share their expertise in a curated seminar.
- Professional Insurance Development: ERIE is a big company, and not every job is insurance related. If you started in human resources or sales, jumping to a career as an underwriter is possible. To help employees learn more about the fundamentals, we support various insurance courses and designations such as the Associate in General Insurance (AINS).
How Does ERIE Support My Development Goals?
It’s not just you who wants to succeed, but we want it, too. ERIE provides a supportive culture of learning that includes training, resources and opportunities to foster growth and success as an ERIE employee. Curating your career is important for you professionally, as well as personally. Our leaders know that if they want strategic execution, their teams need the right skills. Oftentimes our leaders are the first ones who help employees take that next step in the career journey.
