Customer & Community
Talent Attraction, Development & Retention
We launched a career management resource center in 2016 that is interactive, user-friendly, and dynamic while meeting our employees’ needs. This online platform is designed to increase employee awareness of the processes, tools, and resources available for career management.
We remain committed to helping employees plan and achieve their professional goals. We offer coaching, career counseling, and workshops to employees on topics such as interviewing skills, resume writing, effective communication, and conflict management. Sessions offered include Development Plan Workshop, Managing Workplace Conflict, Situational Leadership, Leadership Challenge, and Business Academy.
Our three formal mentoring programs—Executive, Corporate, and Women in Nontraditional Careers—continue to support the development of a diverse and inclusive workplace. Our tuition-aid program reimburses eligible employees who seek higher education to enhance their careers. Employees may qualify for up to 100 percent reimbursement of tuition costs after earning a degree. In 2016, 607 employees participated in the tuition-aid program. Of the 607, sixty percent were minorities and thirty-nine percent were women.
Our Leadership Academy for Supervisors continues to prepare supervisors for their critical role as frontline leaders. The Academy’s core curriculum covers essential skills in leadership, ranging from coaching to managing workplace conflict, as well as corporate-wide training requirements related to safety, compliance, and diversity and inclusion. As of June 2017, 420 employees were enrolled and over 100 have completed the program.
