Free Learning Opportunities

Advocate provides a host of free learning opportunities including instructor-led courses, computer-based training for just-in-time learning, and on-the-job development. An intensive orientation curriculum is also provided for all new leaders to let them know about our organizational strategy and what we expect from them.

Assessment and Feedback

Additional development offerings are available for associates interested in gaining individualized and targeted feedback on their customer service and/or leadership behaviors. An assessment center and online 360° feedback system aid associates in identifying career goals, developing learning plans, and hopefully preparing for their future at Advocate.
