Fidelity Highlighted for Investing in Retaining—and Retraining—its Workforce

Council member Fidelity Investments was recently featured in “What’s Working: Solutions for New Hampshire’s Workforce Needs,” a series by the Union Leader showcasing business practices aiding the New Hampshire workforce and economy.

Specifically, the company’s career center in Merrimack, NH, was highlighted for its work to improve internal mobility within the company in order to increase retention along with employee satisfaction and mobility. The center provides recruiting assistance, workshops on topics ranging from networking to resume-building, and advice on what skills employees need for other positions within Fidelity. Since opening in Merrimack in May 2017, the career center has hosted more than 1,000 associates for career coaching alone, resulting in more than a quarter of Fidelity employees experiencing internal mobility over the past 12 months.

“I think what this place gave me is the courage and confidence more than anything else,” employee Michele O’Leary said. “The career center offered me that opportunity to find that path [to her current position] within Fidelity.”

The Council applauds Fidelity on its continuing investments in the region, and its commitment to workforce development and its employees. Read more in the Union Leader.
