Workforce Development

Computing Services is an organization affected by continuous change, driven by the accelerated pace of technology advances, demands for digital transformation, and desire for business process efficiencies. Creating and improving an environment where all staff may learn, thrive, and contribute in accordance with their unique strengths is critical for successfully keeping up with change. A key component is to deliberately focus on building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture where all contributors with various life experiences are encouraged to bring perspectives with broader, more heterogeneous visions of how to engage, innovate, and serve.

To attract, retain, and develop staff and create a top-notch workplace with world-class IT professionals, we will commit to the continual renewal of our workforce to develop their talent and enhance their well-being. The vast and varied knowledge and experience of our people goes well beyond IT applications, systems, networks, and security. It includes planning, reading, and writing skills; speaking, listening, and facilitation skills; and creativity, resilience, and patience.
