Training and Development
Training and Development is committed to achieving a culture of excellence through learning and the creation of a learning organization. Our team focuses on three areas of emphasis: training and development, organizational development and career development.
We strive to provide our employee population with a broad range of training opportunities. Training solutions are maximized through a number of partnerships and resources with qualified institution trainers, the NC Department of Health and Human Services Training Division, the NC Office of State Personnel Human Resources Development Group and other institutions.
