Why Scion Chose Life Cross Training (LIFE XT) as a key partner
“The pace and complexity of the student housing sector sets it apart as one of the most demanding sectors in all of real estate. One of the reasons The Scion Group is one of the fastest growing and most successful companies in this space is because we hire the best, most competitive people; and those individuals drive hard every day to deliver industry leading results. Delivering extraordinary value in the midst of such a competitive industry requires us to invest in the ongoing development of our people in a way that allows them to keep pace with the demands of our industry, while also delivering on our organizational goals. We have to make sure development extends to all areas of their health and wellbeing, both in and out of the office, for them to truly be productive, engaged and resilient. We decided to partner with LIFE XT because of their scientifically-based and novel approach to delivering highly personalized coaching, engaging digital content, and a comprehensive suite of courses that will support our employees’ development.”
