Policy HR128

The University administration's support for the benefits of training is clear in UT policy HR0128 - Human Resources Development. It states:

"The University of Tennessee believes the professional development and training of its employees are central to the university's mission, vision, and values. The head of each campus or institute is responsible for ensuring that individual and departmental training needs are met. The Office of Employee and Organizational Development will assist campus and institute officers (or designees) with assessing needs and providing training or other appropriate services to meet individual and departmental goals. Professional development and training should be planned individually during the employee's annual performance review. Supervisors are strongly encouraged to support employees' participation in a minimum of 32 hours of training and development activities per year".

The recommendation of 32 hours of training and professional development each calendar year is an attainable goal. The goal can be easily reached with a combination of training opportunities both on and off campus. Acceptable options include on-campus classroom training, online computer-based training; off-site classes and seminars; webinars, conferences, etc. Please visit the training calendar for upcoming opportunities on campus.
