S+C University Day

Americas Events Social responsibility

TGS Global member, S+C Partners developed and launched S+C University Day four years ago, as the Partners strongly believe in the value of ongoing education to better serve clients and develop team members.

Every September, S+C University Day is a full day of professional development for the entire firm that allows team members to learn and grow in general areas, as well as in their area of practice or specialty.

The day is divided in half, with morning programming relevant to everyone, and afternoon programming that is generally more practice-specific. The first part of the day always includes presentations by the Managing Partner, the HR team, and the IT team. This year’s HR and IT presentations both focused on meeting some of the challenges involved with working remotely. After lunch, everyone breaks into one of three groups to attend a focused seminar of their choosing, before coming back together for a final presentation on a general topic of interest.

This year’s event concluded with a presentation by an Associate Partner on “Top Five Tax Planning Ideas and How to Implement Them.”

SDG 4 quality education

TGS Global is a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact, committed to sustainable development, quality education and lifelong learning.

Our commitment to ongoing learning also extends to the day itself. Team members are polled annually for suggestions on how University Day can be improved for the following year. Based on feedback received last year, this year’s University Day featured outside guest speakers for the first time—with professional writing and team development seminars delivered as part of the morning training.

S+C University Day has traditionally been an in-person event occurring at an off-site location. This year it was presented remotely via Zoom due to Covid-19 restrictions and precautions.
