Develop Your Employees

At Ohio State we support a culture of learning. Managers encourage self-identification of opportunities and partner with the individual to assess development needs, set goals and create and support individual plans. On-the-job experiences and exposure to others as well as learning opportunities should be considered as part of each development plan. Growth and development efforts are most effective with ongoing dialogue and collaboration between the employee and the manager.
