Training and Continuing Education

  • Westside follows a simple rule for continuing education: When it adds value or expertise to Westside, it is a worthy investment.  Clinic Directors approve requests based on course relevancy and employee performance.
  • In-service trainings are regularly hosted at Westside. Many times employees self-organize these events for other staff members who are interested.

Social Events & Dinner Stipends

  • Westside sponsors regular social events for its staff. Events have included renting Chicago Blackhawks Game Skyboxes, Knockerball, Cubs rooftop games, gatherings at Cooper Hawk, and laser tag. Events typically occur on early-release Fridays.

1-on-1’s & Regular Feedback

  • All employees conduct monthly 1-on-1 meetings with managers. These meetings produce some of Westside’s best new ideas and equip our company to proactively address employee concerns. 1-on-1’s contribute to the cohesiveness of the Westside teams, making employees feel that they have a mentor to confide in and a voice that is heard.
  • Westside has formal checkpoints with employees in June and December. In June, employees receive feedback from managers on what they can improve on for the second half of the year. In December, employees receive their final performance ratings. These conversations provide the constructive feedback necessary for professional improvement.
