ENGAGEENGAGE provides common needs training and development to all RRC staff across the employee lifecycle.

Driven by College strategy, in consultation with employees and leaders, ENGAGE sessions align with RRC’s Values of Learning, Respect, Inclusiveness, Integrity, Sustainability and Service to Community.

ENGAGE sessions are strongly encouraged for all employees, and some (such as Accessible Customer Service Training) are legislatively required.

You are encouraged to take advantage of ENGAGE – and to have ongoing conversations with your supervisor about your learning and development!
