One of Cumberland County’s strategic goals is to employ, maintain, and motivate well trained employees. To achieve this goal, Employee Development’s mission is to engage employees in a continuous learning environment, supported by departments and county management, to ensure all employees have the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to create a competitive advantage. This supports our core values: Professionalism, Respect, Integrity with accountability, Diversity, and Excellent customer service.
Our employees are the county’s most valuable asset. Together we will create a consistent, relevant, and innovative training and Career Development Program. We believe it is essential that all employees acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to perform their jobs at the highest level possible, with effective talent management. We believe people learn in three ways: formally, on the job, and socially.
