Prioritizing Professional Development


Leisure Care communities are exciting places to work and grow while developing a lifelong passion. We know our people are what make our communities so great. That’s why we have created unique professional development programs that identify future leaders in the company and invest in them accordingly.

Among the professional development programs offered are the Management Associate Program (MA) and Guiding, Recognizing, and Inspiring Talent (GRIT). Both our MA and GRIT programs help current employees build personal and professional skills. While the MA program allows employees to fine-tune their skills to become a general manager of their own community, the GRIT program takes a more broad approach, cultivating public speaking skills, resume building, networking and interviewing skills, communication, and leadership development – all while building meaningful relationships with our executive development team.

“One of Leisure Care’s core values is the development of staff. We love to see our employees grow within our company. Whatever their dream job may be, we will support and mentor them to reach it!” – Holly Korb, Operations Director
