The new year is a perfect time to assess your professional growth over the past year and set goals for the next! Set yourself up for a productive, exciting, and successful new year by focusing on your career. At Northwell, we’re always looking to empower our employees with the tools they need to improve their skills and accomplish any resolution they make.
Stick to these resolutions and your career will flourish in 2019!
Further your education
It’s never too late to learn something new, and furthering your education helps strengthen your mind for future challenges. Choosing to go back to school is a rewarding way to stay competitive in your industry by expanding your knowledge. At Northwell Health, we invest in our employees’ education through a multitude of educational programs. Our tuition reimbursement program* reimburses eligible employees per calendar year toward qualified tuition expenses for an associate’s, bachelor’s or graduate-level degree. We also offer an MBA program through Hofstra University, where eligible employees receive 100% employer-paid tuition expenses toward a degree!
Find a mentor
Have you been meaning to enter a mentoring relationship to help grow and guide your professional development? Connect with a mentor in the new year! Mentors can help enhance and hone your skills, bring a seasoned perspective, and help your career in the long-run. Pick a mentor outside of your immediate department so that you can gain new insight into the company and feel comfortable discussing any problems that might arise within your office as you pursue a solution.
Read a book
Reading is fundamental! Take a break from your usual fiction list and jump into new ideas that will illuminate the world around you and your place within it. If you’re looking for inspiration, explore Health Care Reboot: Megatrends Energizing American Medicine, a new book by Northwell’s CEO Michael Dowling and Charles Kenney.
Volunteering looks great on your resume and it feels good to boot! Find opportunities to give back around your community to help better yourself in the new year. At Northwell, we foster this passion for caring for your community with our Business Employee Resource Groups (BERGs). The BERGs program at connects our employees to others who share their passions and identity to reach out and build relationships with the communities we serve. Our BERGs have volunteered within our community educating, understanding and supporting members of various ethnicities and cultural backgrounds, the LGBTQ community, the disability community, and veterans.
