Homegrown: Building Internal Capacity While Creating an Impact That Is "Bigger Than Us"
Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019
1:30 PM - 3:00 PM: Breakout
This workshop will highlight Fairfax County's approach to creating a learning culture that provides extensive professional development opportunities for staff while building internal capacity to meet agency needs. This approach offers internal growth opportunities that improve retention, decrease the cost of external vendors, and provides avenues to foster future leaders, solving succession planning challenges.
The Human Services Value Curve will be introduced. Examples will be provided of professional development programs, initiatives, and strategies at each level of the Human Service Value Curve to demonstrate how shifts in initiatives can be made to serve not only the individual employee, but that builds on themselves to impact the agency as a whole and carry over to the larger community.
