Welcome to the Talent Development Community!


The Office of Talent Management, Learning and Professional Development encourage you to learn more about the Talent Development Community (TDC). 

The purpose of this Community is to enhance performance through strategic partnerships and collaboration. The TDC provides an opportunity to engage a community of professionals with similar interest and to leverage resources from various state agencies.  The TDC will also provide an avenue to share information and best practices related to emerging trends in talent development and improve employee performance.

Please take the time to explore resources and to learn about the current initiatives underway!
