A culture of professional development is vital to staff morale and retention and to the character and validity of our institution. HCC is strongly committed to a work environment in which all members of the HCC community are encouraged to pursue opportunities for learning and professional growth, and to draw from the institution's own intellectual resources as well as external sources in providing those opportunities.
While responsibility lies with the employee to seek appropriate development activities, it is essential for this to occur within a supportive institutional climate. The leadership of HCC places particular emphasis on encouraging all employees to support and encourage each other in the pursuit of continuous learning within the framework of an effective workplace.
Employees are encouraged to seek the assistance and guidance of their supervisors as they develop a professional development plan.
