Silver Hill launches employee learning centermortgagepress.comSilver Hill, learning center, employee training Silver Hill Financial LLC has introduced a comprehensive Learning Center to properly train new employees to fill positions within the company. With exploding hiring needs, the company is responding to the challenge in an innovative fashion. "Our unique Learning Center is changing the way the mortgage industry looks at employee education, recruitment and retention," said Joanna Schwartz, senior vice president of Silver Hill Financial LLC. "We're very proud of the progress we've already made and of our inaugural graduating class of 18 students." With the Learning Center designed and in place, the company wanted to bring in a top-notch trainer to run the program. Accordingly, Silver Hill has hired Brian Wallace as its new director of training. In this position, Wallace is responsible for all aspects of training development and delivery of the program. He has 19-plus years of mortgage experience and has trained more than 2,000 loan officers across the country in sales technique, system-based origination, product knowledge and management skills. The Silver Hill training program is an intensive, three-week program, in which students are in training sessions all day, every day. Part of the uniqueness of the program is that it works with a variety of bright and qualified candidates, regardless of mortgage industry experience. It covers a history and overview of the mortgage industry, an in-depth look at Silver Hill's loan program and why it's unique, as well as insightful presentations from company executives. Upon graduation, the students are asked to rank the departments in which they would like to work, and then are assigned positions with the company based on where management believes they are the best fit. In the first class, virtually all of the 18 students were placed in their first choice of position. "Having just completed the program, I can already see Silver Hill's commitment to its employees," said Alex Roman, a member of the inaugural graduating class of the Learning Center. "It gave me a great baseline knowledge of the mortgage industry, as well as an inside look at the innovative approach Silver Hill takes to its business."
