At Marquis we believe that there is always more to learn and improve on. Part of being able to hire the best people means investing in resources and opportunities for their continuing education, personal growth and career development.

Administrators in Training (AIT) Program

We believe that strong leadership keeps us successful. Our Administrator in Training (AIT) program allows us to organically develop the natural talents of future leaders. In a hands-on program, AITs learn how each department functions by working side by side with employees. These experiences develop resourceful future Administrators who understand the day-to-day challenges of their employees. AITs also learn to evaluate efficiencies of facility operations.

Ascend Program

Some people are born leaders and for others it’s more of a discovery process. Understanding this, we’ve created a leadership development program called Ascend. The purpose of our Ascend program is to recognize and invest in the leadership potential across the organization as well as develop clear career pathways for our staff. We want our employees to “find their right seat on the bus” and to know there are opportunities for them to grow within the company.
