The second graduating class of Fidelity Bank’s LifeDesign University had reason to celebrate at their graduation January 30 at Oak Hill Country Club in Fitchburg, MA. The class of 13 Fidelity Bank employees met every three weeks for two hours over a year long period to complete the professional development program.
The participating students were Timi Whitney of Winchendon, Tanya Quinn of Athol, Kaitlyn Lillie of Fitchburg, Courtney Gatta of Sturbridge, Jessica Woodbury of Leominster, Wanda Walsh of Lancaster, Jessenia Sioris of Westminster, Marcin Wiadrowski of Holden, Brittany Roberge of Rutland, Joseph Murchison of Fitchburg, Alex Petit of Sutton, Zachery Lavoie of Fitchburg, and Jamie Dack of Winchendon.
Fidelity Bank teamed up with Nichols College to create LifeDesign University to bring a selected group of employees from a variety of departments out of the bank and into the classroom to develop the essential tools to increase productivity, promote teamwork amongst departments and garner skills for the next steps of their careers with Fidelity Bank. The curriculum included coursework and required hands-on skill practice and implementation in areas such as effective communication, supervisory skills, situational leadership, change management, project management, and negotiation.
