Welcome to the Talent Development Community!


The Office of Talent Management, Learning and Talent 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!


At a Glance: Course Schedule by Name and Date

Annual Learning and Talent Development At a Glance Course Listing - FY21

Learning and Talent Development will no longer offer the Annual Course Catalog. You will now be able to access training courses via the new Learning and Talent Development At-A-Glance Course Listing. The At-A-Glance will provide you with an array of diverse training opportunities in a convenient format to help you customize your training and skill development for the upcoming fiscal year! The At-A-Glance includes all course details, dates, times, locations, and course descriptions. The new At-A-Glance is organized by the title of the courses, their descriptions and when the courses are offered throughout the year.

Some of the featured learning events include: Roadmap for Managing Performance Workshop Series for supervisors. Also, the DAS Equal Opportunity Division’s Diversity & Inclusion Institute is open to all state employees, and offers a variety of topics related to EEO, HR, and Diversity and Inclusion.

We encourage you to explore the new learning opportunities. If you have any questions, please contact Learning and Talent Development at (614) 387-6183.
