How F&G promotes our team members' professional development

Being able to advance your professional skills is a must-have at any organization, and F&G is no exception. From tuition reimbursement to mentoring, we put our employees’ career advancement front and center from the day they are hired.

F&G offers several professional development opportunities that can propel the careers of its employees to the next level.

The impact of the F&G Leadership Academy

The F&G Leadership Academy is a unique resource for F&G team members. It is a two-year program that provides them with coursework based around self-awareness, executive presence, influencing outcomes, internal motivation and other developmental tasks between sessions.

Team members who participate in the Academy develop an invaluable relationship within their cohort that aids the business as a whole. The level of comfort between these leaders is bolstered exponentially when they are faced with development opportunities that truly push them out of their comfort zones.

The Leadership Academy provides them with skills and knowledge to take their F&G careers to the next level.

Lateral moves promote professional development

F&G supports employees moving positions across their departments or even across the company.

Medis Brkic started as a Key Accounts Specialist and later became an Internal Wholesaler.

Medis says that “F&G’s culture promotes belonging and acceptance, which is a huge motivator in itself. Plus, leaders and mentors are enthusiastic to support their employees’ goals. F&G places a high value on people and invests in their growth. There are opportunities for everyone, and it’s a great feeling to know that employee’s matter.”

There are many more examples of this across the company.

F&G is growing. With that comes more opportunities for our team members to experience different facets of the company and develop professionally.


The importance of professional development

Helping team members to consistently develop their professional skills is very important to F&G. The industry and world are changing, and F&G makes sure to provide our employees development to stay ahead of the changes and create innovation for us as a company.

F&G uses the 70-20-10 rule in terms for professional development: 70% of learning is through challenging projects and taking on responsibilities; 20% is through relationships, mentoring and coaching; and the final 10% is through direct learning, such as lunch and learns and workshops.

Becoming a team member at F&G ensures that the development of your professional skills is supported by the company.
