Training and Development
Creativity is sparked at Hasbro University. Its dedicated staff of learning and development professionals seek to promote professional growth and unlock the potential of individuals and teams to meet current and future business opportunities. Training includes career, management and leadership development in both classroom and online settings.
Hasbro launched its first formal mentor program in 2012 and it was an immediate hit! The annual mentor program has created hundreds of partnerships across the company. Each year, mentees apply for the program and, if accepted, are matched with a leader two levels above. The resulting 12-month partnership focuses on a development goal the individual has identified. Mentees and mentors hold check-ins with the mentor program team and meet both formally and informally during the year to discuss progress.
This annual program generates successful outcomes for both individuals and the company. These include job changes, further education, network building, job shadowing, and the development of new tools to enhance relationships with customers, peers, and leaders.
Mentoring Matters: What Our Employees Say
Supporting Continued Education
Hasbro offers tuition reimbursement programs to employees looking to further their educational and professional goals independently. Regular, full-time employees in Rhode Island are eligible for reimbursement of up to $5,250 annually. Courses must be related to current or future positions within Hasbro or be required by an approved academic program. We also offer an Executive MBA Scholarship Program through Northeastern University. The 16-month program is open for application from employees across all business functions with 10 or more years of professional experience, and offers skills development that can later be leveraged to make a positive impact at Hasbro.
