Workforce Development

The Office of Workforce Development assists agencies with effective employee training and a professional development system that inspires trust, clarifies purpose, aligns systems, and develops talent.

Workforce Development is a systematic process for identifying the human capital required to meet agency goals and developing the strategies to meet those requirements.

The goal of the Office of Workforce Development is to provide State agencies with the tools, information, and training needed to ensure a quality workforce for State government.


The Office of Workforce Development has two programmatic functional areas: Talent Management and Career Development.


The Talent Management Division provides agencies with management tools to measure performance, competencies and skill sets, and identify methods to improve performance.

The Career Development Division provides agencies and State employees with certification and professional development programs such as the Certified Public Manager (CPM) program, the Human Resources Certification Program (HRCP),
and the Administrative and Executive Services Certification Programs (ASCP and ESCP).
