Learning and Development
Our company is the industry leader and the best place to work because our people never stop learning, growing, and advancing. We provide a wide range of resources for both professional and personal development. We foster an environment allowing our people to improve themselves, enhance their skills, become more engaged, and be effective colleagues and leaders.
The Learning Hub
Our Learning Hub was launched in July 2021. This platform offers a consistent learning experience for new hires, support, and training on compliance for all employees, and a library of 6,000+ courses to provide continued learning and development for all.
Leadership Development Program (LDP)
Our foundational leadership development program, the LDP, helps our leaders in advancing their skills, business knowledge, and commercial acumen in better executing company strategy. The curriculum is designed around the WillScot Mobile Mini value proposition, helping participants make the shift from an execution mindset to one of leadership. Since 2015, more than 500 leaders have participated in this program.
The LDP was recalibrated and relaunched for WillScot Mobile Mini in October 2021 after taking a brief pause during COVID. A cohort of nearly 30 leaders completed the program and capstone week in February 2022 and another 30 individuals started the program in March 2022. We have two additional cohorts planned to launch this year.
Driver Apprentice Program
Launched in October 2021, our Driver Apprentice Program builds a pipeline of qualified Commercial Class A (CDL) Drivers, providing development opportunities for candidates interested in becoming CDL drivers. To date, we have hired nearly 20 new driver apprentices, with many more on the way. This new program offers internal development opportunities for current employees to become driver trainers.
Tuition Assistance Program
The Tuition Assistance Program gives employees the opportunity to enhance their knowledge. WillScot Mobile Mini will reimburse eligible employees continuing their education through programs, courses, and certifications offered by accredited institutions. We reimburse up to $5,250 each year per employee in the US and Canada.
To achieve our ESG goals, it is imperative that our workforce understands the purpose of ESG, what WillScot Mobile Mini is doing to pursue that purpose, and how each employee can contribute. Thus, we have taken the first step in building an internal ESG literacy program to help employees expand their knowledge and become more engaged. This effort will be supported in partnership with a graduate intern from Arizona State University.
