GameStop Honored for Workforce Development Programs

Receives 2019 TEACH Partner Award from DeVryWORKS

GRAPEVINE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–GameStop,
the world’s largest video game retailer, was recently honored with the
2019 TEACH Partner Award by DeVryWORKS,
the workforce solutions group within DeVry University. The award
recognizes GameStop for its innovative corporate learning and
development programs that exemplify DeVry’s
TEACH values
.


DeVry bestows the award annually to organizations for excellence in
workforce development programs that provide their employees numerous
opportunities to learn, grow and succeed. The TEACH Partner Award is
rooted in the DeVry University’s values, which guide how the university
interacts with its students, faculty, colleagues and partners.

DeVry University’s TEACH values are.

Teamwork:

  We put the team first, appreciate diverse points of view, assume
positive intent, collaborate and communicate openly

Energy:

We move quickly, learn from mistakes, build positive spirit and
always look for a better way

Accountability:

We take ownership and initiative, demonstrate courage, and act with
integrity

Community:

We operate with a shared sense of responsibility and purpose, and
enrich colleagues, students and the broader community we serve

Heart:

We serve students and each other with passion, respect and care

From an innovative portal that enables leaders and their teams to
collaborate on development plans; to learning about current employees’
needs through “stay” interviews – as opposed to exit interviews; from
summer internships and an executive mentoring program to creating a
one-of-a-kind senior leadership development; the creation of a fully
gamified learning platform; to creating employee resources groups that
partner with outside community groups; among other initiatives, GameStop
has created a comprehensive workforce development program that is
focused on bringing out the best in its employees and its business.
Through their workforce development initiatives, GameStop has delivered
enviable talent retention results amid an historically low national
unemployment rate.

Matthew Hirst, senior director of Talent, OD & Learning for GameStop,
said about the award, “We feel especially honored to be recognized by
the business and learning leaders at DeVryWORKS, with whom we’ve
worked closely to develop and build valuable tools and resources that
enable our people to learn and grow at GameStop. We’re always working
hard to improve our programs, with a goal of delivering an associate
experience where every person in our organization feels both recognized
for their unique contributions to the GameStop family and supported in
working towards their career goals. We’re especially grateful to receive
this award, which reflects the commitment and hope we have for our
associates to find purpose and meaning in their work.”

“At DeVry, these TEACH values define us, how we are guided and the
decisions we make in support of our students and employer partners,”
said Joe Mozden, vice president of DeVryWORKS. “As such, we want
to recognize those organizations that apply these values within the
context of our partnership as their education provider. We commend
GameStop for their efforts to bring their own values to life and
ensuring their employees are engaged, passionate and empowered in their
careers.”
