Peer Groups

We invest in our employees and their professional development. Peer Groups are one of the ways in which we engage employees at all levels in a collaborative learning environment to build skills key to their success.

As part of Arc Aspicio’s Integrated Professional Development (IPD) initiative, we have developed and matured a Peer Groups program. Peer Groups are the foundation of our professional development program and are a great opportunity for employees to build important leadership skills while building professional relationships with peers and executives.

Across all Peer Groups, we focus on developing cornerstone consulting skills, strengthening peer relationships, sharing peer feedback, collaborating on teams, and practicing skills. Peer Groups offer fun and interactive ways for employees to learn new skills, as sessions often end with happy hours organized by the participants.

All Junior Associate and Associate employees have the opportunity to expand their professional toolkit through this unique group learning experience. We have built out curriculum that allows employees to practice. We offer core and advanced Peer Groups to support employees throughout their career development.
