Windsor Academy is a company-wide, intensive training program offering courses for
all associates. This comprehensive effort represents Windsor Property Management
Co.'s desire to encourage, promote and retain the industry's most talented people.
Investing in Our Greatest Asset
Classes are designed to cover every aspect of the real estate and property management
industries, offering employees new opportunities for growth and new avenues for
advancement. Windsor's management philosophy continues to focus on teamwork and
promoting from within.
A Blended Learning Approach
To fulfill these goals, Windsor Academy has adopted a “blended learning approach,”
using the latest technology to complement traditional classroom training. This strategy
utilizes a combination of online courses, collaborative tools, web meetings, video/tele-conferencing,
intranet and traditional classroom training to provide efficient learning. Training
sites have been established in central locations throughout the United States for
classroom-based training. These locations were selected in order to keep travel
cost effective and convenient for associates.
In an effort to help our associates grow within the company, Windsor Academy offers
Career Tracks. These tracks are designed to allow associates to complete prearranged
blocks of classes that focus on specific disciplines. After successfully completing
one track, associates then move to the track most befitting their goals and potential.
The Career Tracks include:
- Introduction to Sales
- Advanced Sales
- Manager-in-Training (MIT)
- Supervisor-in-Training (SIT)
- Hands-On Maintenance Workshops
Course material is added to the curriculum as needed to cover advanced and specialty
subjects. Training modules are updated regularly to include feedback from the field,
evaluations, class experience, new ideas and new policies.
The Training Department, Human Resources and Regional Staffs work closely together
to ensure smooth transitions and mapped career paths for all associates from newly
hired to newly promoted.
In addition to the Training Department, there are many other people that take part
in teaching classes - Divisional Managers, Regional Vice Presidents, Department
Heads and Academy Trainers. The Academy Trainers are chosen from our top performers
out on the field based on their creativity, leadership skills and ability to grow
into new and challenging positions. This elite group not only helps provide additional
Windsor Academy classes across the nation, but also serves as the designated role
models within our organization.
