It provides a consistent citywide approach that also invites agency customization. It is designed to build knowledge and expertise, resulting in engaged and empowered employees who serve the residents of the City and County of Denver. Learning is offered online and through instructor lead workshops. Plus, there are many options that can be customized to meet particular agency and department business goals. The Learning & Development team works in partnership with OHR Business Partners to support city agencies and departments as they strategize the role of learning and development to support their business initiatives.
