At this time of year, our thoughts naturally turn to back to school. After entering the workforce, you might think your time in school is over, but guess again! Susquehanna’s employees are always learning new skills, and we now have a brand-new “school” to attend! We recently opened the Susquehanna Learning and Resource Center, a centralized training facility in Mountville, PA.
As many as 100 employees from across the company are likely to participate in classes each day at the center, which includes 12 training rooms, six of them equipped with accordion-style folding walls to provide a variety of room configurations based on the audience and the type of meeting.
In addition, about 40 Susquehanna employees from the training and corporate human resources departments will be based in the building. The facility also has a 150-capacity special event room for larger meetings. Technology for launching and recording webinars has been made available in four webinar rooms. All new-hire orientation and onboarding activities will take place at the center as well.
Local restaurants and hotels will benefit from people visiting the center. Susquehanna Bank has more than 260 branches throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland and West Virginia. It is anticipated that Susquehanna employees traveling to the center for training will require as many as 3,000 hotel night stays per year in the Mountville area. I wonder if any employees will be brave enough to visit the nearby attraction Field of Screams this fall?
