Employee Development


At San Jacinto College District, our passions are people, learning, innovation, and continuous improvement. By focusing on employee development as an on-going process of education, training, learning and activities that support personal and professional growth, we will continue to promote a culture where individuals feel valued, confident, and committed to the organization.

Our goal is to increase capacity development of employees which will address the need for improved performance and aid us in maintaining a productive and engaged workforce.  In an effort to advance the mission of San Jacinto College, we will establish a comprehensive, competency-based employee development program which will include:

  • Solutions for maximizing workplace production
  • Strategies for identifying, managing, and improving skill gaps
  • Foundational onboarding and re-boarding procedures that are critical for employee retention   and success
  • Opportunities for employees at every level to grow through various learning platforms

San Jacinto College District’s onboarding initiative is designed to promote our vision, mission, values and culture, in an effort to develop a more informed, engaged and motivated workforce, resulting in increased employee retention. SJConnections is a one day event that places new employees in a welcoming, social environment with other new hires from across the college.

The focus of SJConnections is to begin building the bond between SJCD and our new employees.  Employees will not only learn about the mission, vision, values and strategic priorities of the college, but will also learn more about key departments of the college, our history and path forward, and hear from our senior leaders.

SJConnections is held at the District Boardroom (A1.104) on the last Thursday of each month. Please click here to view a list of current dates and times.

SJCD 2014 WIIFM Survey results indicate that 56% of respondents believe improving workplace production is important to continual growth and development. Leadership has become increasingly aware of the need to maximize the skills of the work force, in order to compete and grow.

Essential skills such as time management, effective communication and flexibility in the workplace help people perform their daily tasks better and enhance their ability to innovate and adapt to workplace change.
