Do you have a 10-year plan? We would love to hear about it, because we want to help you achieve it.
When you join Goodwin House, you get more than a job. You join a huge family. There are 900 of us, and we all want you to succeed. It doesn’t matter where you are on your career path, we have the resources to help you take the next step.
Learning on the job is a great way to advance your career. We don’t believe in ad hoc systems that make education an afterthought. We offer regular training and dedicate time for staff to attend classes and information sessions. “We continually work to promote formal learning for our staff,” explains Cathy Farmer, Goodwin House Alexandria Director of Clinical Services, Health & Wellness.
From CPR and dementia training to annual education days, Goodwin House offers a wide range of classes and special training to help each employee develop a career path and have opportunities for advancement. You can pursue new interests, hone skills and get experience under the formal umbrella of our on-site training programs.
Want to go back to school to follow your career dreams? College is expensive, but we can help. We paid almost $124,000 in tuition assistance for our team members in 2018, and more than that in 2017. And many of the employees who received this help also earned promotions at Goodwin House, in part because of their education.
Tuition assistance is not limited to full-time employees, certain jobs or departments. Join us, meet the eligibility requirements, dream and enroll. We will help you get there.
When it comes to paying for our childrens’ education, we all need help. That’s why Goodwin House offers a scholarship program for team members whose children are attending a university, college or vocational school. We started the program in 2006 with a grant from the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation and have contributed more than $90,000 for our team members’ family tuition costs. Individual grants are as much as $2,000, depending on what’s in the fund.
Leadership is a quality we believe should be developed throughout our organization. Whether you are a natural leader with experience or just starting out with limited leadership skills, you might be surprised by how much you can grow by learning to lead. Goodwin House needs leaders, and we invest in creating them.
Our Emerging Leaders Program fosters the growth of a dozen leaders every other year. Forty team members have graduated from the Emerging Leaders Program to date. Seventeen of those have been promoted within Goodwin House, and six have increased their responsibilities due to the skills they gained.
