After years in development, Bloom U was formed to invest in Bloom associates by providing education and professional development — something Bloom’s founder, Richard Tischler, deeply believed in. This is part of Bloom’s overall mission to ensure associates have flourishing life-long careers with Bloom, as opposed to simply a job.
Bloom U is a university with a curriculum comprised of e-based and classroom courses, interactive exercises, videos, workshops, seminars, role-playing and shadowing that communicate Bloom’s trainings and expectations in a universal and consistent manner to all associates. It also provides Bloom associates with the tools to be successful in performing their duties and advancing their career, while delivering Bloom’s brand promise. Associates are introduced to the Bloom story, from Richard’s humble beginnings through the company evolution, and will meet the Bloom family; learn about the company’s strong mission, culture, brand and Bloom Beliefs; gain an understanding of why Bloom does what it does, day-in and day-out; and are shown what’s required to be a Bloom associate.
Bloom U is available to all associates 24/7 at the Bloom U Learning Center located in each community, and associates are certified after graduating — the first of many milestones in their career with Bloom.
