Success ProfilesMarksNelson UMentoring ProgramPeer Buddies
To demonstrate our commitment to our people, MarksNelson developed a comprehensive performance tool known as the “Success Profile” for every position in the firm. Every profile has three performance areas with clearly defined competencies: position specific, behavior based, and interpersonal/leadership skills. The Success Profile is a measurement tool used to identify those who are ready to be promoted to the next level.
At MarksNelson, we believe that continuing education should include more than technical CPE. That’s why we developed MarksNelson University, an individualized training program consisting of technical and soft skill competencies you’ll need throughout your career. Together, we’ll tailor a program designed to help you realize your full potential.
We know that the long-term sustainable success of the firm depends upon the growth of our future leaders, in all aspects of their career and personal lives. MarksNelson’s current leadership is here to serve as a guidepost in your development. Their experience, wisdom and connections can enhance your career and expand your ability to successfully navigate the many situations and challenges you’ll face along the way.
Every new MarksNelson hire, whether experienced or fresh out of school, is assigned a “peer buddy” to serve as your contact before your actual start date. Your peer buddy will answer questions and help guide you through the firm’s official orientation, which includes written and unwritten rules and norms, our mission, shared values, ethical standards and more.
