Employee Engagement & Workforce Development

--For City of Tucson Employees--

The Employee Engagement & Workforce Development Team seeks to provide exceptional service to the Tucson community through partnerships with educational institutions, training programs and expert facilitators.  Our programs include city-wide and department specific courses and curricula through CityLearn, Tuition Reimbursement, New Employee Welcome (NEW) and Internship Placement opportunities.

***To protect the health and safety of the community during the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Tucson Employee Development Team has begun to shift to a virtual format. We value our employees and recognize the importance of training, please check this page often for updates on training.***

Our purpose is to:
  • Support and enhance excellent performance on the job by expanding employee skills.
  • Use technology to adapt to the changing needs and resources of the organization and create a digital learning environment.
  • Use digital communication to build more connected, more efficient, and more effective ways of interacting with data and collaboration.
  • Develop employees for professional and organizational improvement.
