Guardian is committed to developing employees and providing opportunities and programs to help them be successful in their careers. Professional development at Guardian encompasses a culture of continuous learning including leadership development and training and education.

New Hire Orientation

As a new hire at Guardian, you can expect to participate in learning about our organization – it’s rich history, culture and structure. In addition, you will learn about Guardian's various businesses, including our flag ship product, whole life insurance. Finally, we spend significant time reviewing all the benefits that are available to you as a new hire including your personal, financial and professional benefits.

Professional and Leadership Development

As an employee, there are a variety of professional and leadership development programs and courses that are available to you individually or to your team as a whole. You will work with your manager to identify where your development needs are, which will guide the coursework that you participate in.

E-Learning

Guardian strives to promote professional competency through the coordination and facilitation of quality training and development programs, including our e-learning offerings. E-learning at Guardian is used to deliver targeted, self-paced virtual training to employees to maintain, improve and broaden their knowledge and skill sets. As an employee, you can access a wide variety of e-learning courses on numerous individual and management topics by logging onto the Learning Management System (LMS) and selecting the interested course(s).

Performance Management

Guardian’s performance management philosophy and process drives business and individual performance by providing our associates with an understanding of business objectives and performance expectations. It provides the necessary tools needed to engage in ongoing dialogue with management to insure associates are making progress against those objectives, and finally assessing what has been accomplished throughout the year.

Professional Affiliations

As part of Guardian’s continuous learning culture, we have professional affiliations with many learning and research organizations including the American Management Association (AMA), the Institute for Management Studies (IMS), the Corporate Leadership Council (CLC) and The Conference Board. As a result, employees can attend webinars, conferences and seminars for either a reduced cost or at no charge.

Tuition Reimbursement

Guardian encourages employees to develop the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in their careers. Educational assistance programs help offset the costs of acquiring education, while new skill sets help the employee adapt productively to the changing demands of work life.

We do this by offering assistance in earning a degree and completing job-related and industry-related education.
