Learn & Grow

At ascena, we believe the knowledge, experience, skill and passion of associates are our most valuable assets.


We are committed to creating an environment where talent thrives. We offer a blended learning approach to our associates that focuses on the 3 Es (experience, exposure and education) and empowers associates to take control of their own development, while being supported by their leader.

Driving Results

We believe that delivering results is important—and how we get those results is just as important. Our comprehensive performance and development program focuses on helping associates achieve their goals and expand their skills, while growing business results. We inspire, coach and grow our associates through:


  • Continuous Coaching
  • Agile Goal Setting
  • Talent Assessment
  • Development Planning
  • Succession Planning

Sharing Feedback

Our Collective Voice, ascena’s associate feedback program, helps identify actions we can quickly take to activate our culture and fulfill our commitment to be a collective of healthy, thriving brands that dominate in their niche and are loved by our customers.

We measure our success against this commitment through our business results, customer experience and our relationships with each other. Through Our Collective Voice, we measure and collect feedback by regularly surveying all associates in our corporate, field and distribution center locations.
