Personal & Professional Development

At The Westervelt Company, we believe that continued personal and professional development benefits not only our employees, but our company as a whole. We have a robust training and development program available to every employee, available through face to face classes and an on-line learning platform.

We are proud to offer one on one coaching support designed to grow an employee’s leadership potential, assist with transitions to new roles and responsibilities and leverage an employee’s strengths and abilities to create change that positive impacts their level of influence and credibility. The Westervelt Company was awarded the Southeast Coaches Association’s 2010 Prism Award, recognizing organizational excellence through coaching.


The Westervelt Company provides mentoring opportunities by pairing employees with mentors who can offer insight, experience and know-how in enhancing another person’s knowledge and skills.
