The Swiss Post Solutions (SPS) Leadership Academy has been named one of the Top 50 Internship Programs in the United States for the second year in a row by Vault, the most comprehensive resource for employer, university, and internship program rankings, ratings, and insights. Offered by Swiss Post Solutions, an innovative leader in business process outsourcing and digitization solutions, the SPS Leadership Academy is a 12-week program which provides experiential training and job opportunities that focus on cultivating qualified interns from some of the country’s most distinguished universities, colleges, and youth development organizations.
According to a recent survey by Deloitte, millennials are more likely to stay with an employer long-term if they feel their skills are being developed and if they receive support and training to progress into leadership roles. The development of these skills is a primary focus of the Swiss Post Solutions Leadership Academy curriculum, created by SPS’ National Director of Training & Organizational Development, Dr. Paul Ortega. “At SPS, our most valuable resource is our employees,” stated Dr. Ortega. “Therefore, we take every opportunity to create and deliver meaningful training that is essential for our interns and employees to progress both professionally and personally.”
The SPS Leadership Academy, which is led by Dr. Ortega with the support of Training & Development team members Cordelia Alfred and Jose Velez, provides hands-on experience and weekly workshops related to management, teamwork, productivity, and personal development in the New York City, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, and Chicago metropolitan areas.
For the 2017 internship rankings, Vault surveyed more than 11,000 current and former interns about their internship programs, which were rated in five areas: quality of life, compensation and benefits, interview process, career development, and full-time employment prospects. The ratings were then averaged to provide an overall score for each program. SPS is ranked at #29 overall, and #10 in Career Development.
“We are honored to be recognized among some of the country’s top companies and organizations for our Leadership Academy,” said Dan Moscatiello, SPS North America CEO. “The program is a key element of SPS’ commitment to providing our employees with opportunities for growth, both personally and professionally.”
