WE CARE: Employee Resources

All Staff
Free training, resources and information is available through the Employee Assistance Program, at no cost to employees. 
Managers and Supervisors
  • Introduction of WE CARE Information into OSDT Training Programs:  In 2014, The Office of Staff Development and Training (OSDT) developed an informational powerpoint presentation outlining the definition, purpose, mission, vision and current initiatives contained within the WE CARE philosophy. This presentation was inserted in all training programs (Basic, In-Service and Career Development) with special emphasis towards the Supervisory Training Programs (first line supervision, mid-level management and senior management) offered by OSDT.
  • During 2015 and continuing in 2016, Mr. James Gorham, WE CARE Committee Chairman, provides WE CARE presentations to management staff throughout the agency and various professional associations.
