This program received a global award as the number one Leadership Program in the non-profit category by HR.com and Leadership Excellence Magazine. Other awardees included on this prestigious list include Allstate Insurance, General Motors and Harvard Business Publishing.

The format included participants learning all aspects of the business functions of FPI taught by FPI’s executive leadership team and a cross-functional strategic business assignment.  AACC’s Center for Workforce Solutions was contacted by FPI to partner specifically in the areas of leadership competency-based instruction, executive reinforcement sessions, measuring learning outcomes, and certification.

This six-month program targeted mid-to-high mid-level managers who are performing successfully in their roles and who demonstrate a potential to move to the next level. The Leadership Foundations Program has held two cohort sessions and graduated 27 participants.

Joyce Phillip, Chief Human Resources Officer, and Angela Wilson, Associate Director of Learning and Organizational Development at FPI, said they are “proud of the partnership with AACC’s Center for Workforce Solutions and the process which helped FPI create an award-winning leadership program.”

HR.com announced winners in 11 categories: large company, international company, midsize company, small company, international leadership partner and provider, larger leadership partner and provider, midsize leadership partner and provider, small leadership partner and provider, educational institution, nonprofit organization, and government/military organization.
