Welcome to Workforce Wednesdays!

Over the next several months, we’ll share a series of stories featuring outstanding employees from across the Partners HealthCare System. These success stories are shining examples among the 64,000 Partners employees who strive for excellence every day.

At Partners we are deeply committed to providing pathways for our employees that will help them to achieve their personal and professional goals. Our workforce development programs help employees who want to begin or further their college experiences, grow their careers in science and health care, become an American citizen or improve their understanding of the English language. These efforts help to develop a well prepared, engaged and diverse group of workers that reflects the richness of the neighborhoods and patients our hospitals serve.

Sandra Jarrett started her career at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in 2005. She is currently an Administrative Coordinator in the Center for Clinical Investigation. Through promotional materials at the hospital, Sandra learned about the School at Work (SAW) program, which teaches college-preparatory math and reading/writing, communication skills, teamwork and conflict resolution. In 2008-2009, Sandra participated in the SAW program, and that kicked off her advanced educational pursuits.
