The IWD supports civilian employees by providing a structure to facilitate professional growth and development. This includes a variety of programs to help employees develop the skills and competencies needed to advance their
careers. The Employee Resource Center is designed to serve as one stop shopping option for professional development resources. In order to understand how to use the Employee Resource Center it is important to be familiar with the different sources of training and information. Employees are encouraged to work their supervisors and their Community of Interest (COI) to determine where they need further development and to lay out a plan to reach their career goals.
