Training and Development
Our City employees are encouraged to embrace a lifelong learning orientation. Employees receive support to achieve their learning goals through training and professional development opportunities at the City. These opportunities align to the overall vision and goals of the City, and individual performance ambitions. By offering support, we contribute to productive, effective and engaged employees.
As a part of our learning experience, the City offers an in-depth onboarding process, performance planning, leadership development, health and safety courses and a policy that supports funding for unique learning and development opportunities. Since learning does not just happen in the classroom, there are a number of options available for development activities including a mentoring, job shadowing, stretch assignments and coaching.
Staff may also be eligible for association membership fee reimbursement and tuition reimbursement for courses offered through outside associations and educational institutions. Reimbursement is subject to department approval.
