Hi Everyone,

Happy New Year!

As Danny mentioned in his note earlier this week, 2015 was truly an historic year for USHG. And 2016 will be even bigger as we write another great chapter for USHG.

We have talked a lot about why growth is vital to the health of our culture, and equally, how the opportunity for professional and financial growth is vital to the health of our team members. When we took the USHG All Employee Survey in the fall, we heard from over 86% of you, so THANK YOU for offering the amazing gift of feedback for how we can continue to get even better!  One of the loudest messages we heard was a call for even more learning opportunities and professional development for all of our team members.

We heard you. And we are so excited to announce we now have over a dozen learning and development classes and opportunities that, for the very first time, are open to all employees of USHG. (Green River colleagues in Chicago, all of these sessions can also be made available to you- either in person or virtually!)

Every USHG team member is now eligible for:

·        Career Coaching Program
·        Hospitality and Service Seminar with Danny
·        Always Be Connecting Dots (ABCD) Class
·        Writing a Great Next Chapter Class
·        Getting the A: Food Safety Class
·        Nurturing Growth Workshop
·        Interviewing Skills and Resume Writing Workshop
·        Training for Intervention Procedures (TIPS) Class
·        “English as a Second Language” Program
·        Getting to know the Home Office Class
·        New Hire Orientation Class (a requirement for all new hires within 90 days, but everyone is welcome to attend!)

Wondering which classes and/or programs might be best to support your professional development?  Visit the Learning page on  Once you have an idea of what you are interested in doing, please engage your manager in the discussion so they can be an advocate for and supporter of your growth!  Registration is open on the learning page once you are prepared and committed to an opportunity.

With Hospitality Included we named our ambitious goal of professionalizing our industry and the career of hospitality at USHG. Our commitment to you is to provide you every opportunity to grow your career and develop professionally.  This is just the first step—your leaders will be communicating what they heard from you in the survey in the near future. Stay tuned for more opportunities in the new year!
