New Blog: Behind the Scenes at RRC
What we’re doing is working…differently. In response to COVID-19, faculty are delivering education in new ways and staff are keeping the College engine running in their own areas. Follow our new blog, Behind the Scenes at RRC, where we shine a spotlight on employees and share stories of how they’re stepping up to the challenge during this unprecedented time.
Do you have a Behind the Scenes at RRC story to share? Let us know and we’ll be happy to get in touch.

ENGAGE Employee Development Program – providing common needs training and development for all RRC staff across the employee lifecycle, including classroom and on-line learning options
Employee Educational Assistance (H10 Policy – Learning and Development) – offering partial tuition reimbursement for external degree programs. The policy also describes what learning opportunities are covered centrally or by your Dean/Director.
Tuition Fee Waivers – For classroom-based courses offered through RRC’s School of Continuing Education
Employee Learning Plans – Every employee at RRC is encouraged to discuss their individual career growth aspirations with their supervisor, explore short and longer term development opportunities, and document those plans in a learning plan. This helps guide both employee and supervisor, and becomes a touchstone for planning, self-reflection, and ongoing coaching and performance conversations. The Employee Learning Plan is also a required component of many applications including the ENVISION Leadership Exploration Program and the Employee Educational Assistance Program.

In addition to the above, Managers are welcome to contact Organizational Development to explore team training for their department in a variety of areas including team-building and strengthening, communication skills and more. After a consultation, we can provide recommendations that meet your outcomes, and we can either coordinate your training or make recommendations, depending on your needs. Where external facilitators are engaged, this cost rests with the department. Contact us for more information.
