ENGAGE Employee Development

 

The ENGAGE Employee Development Program provides common needs training to all RRC employees. Driven by the College’s strategic direction, consultation with employees and leaders, and best practices in our communities, ENGAGE is designed to meet your learning needs in a range of areas including:

  • Early Onboarding (including the New Employee Orientation)
  • Accessibility, Diversity and Inclusiveness
  • Common Technical Skills
  • Interpersonal Skills, Mental Health and Wellness
  • Pre-Retirement Planning

You are encouraged to take advantage of the workshops available at the College and to have ongoing conversations with your supervisor about opportunities for learning and development!

Click on each session title below to find out more details and to register. (Don’t forget to fill out a Staff Development Form for each session too, to document your supervisor’s approval).

Please be aware – some 2018 sessions are not available for registration until late Fall 2017. Check the registration page again later and in the meantime, hold any courses of interest in your calendar.
