Domain 8 - Workforce

Standard 8.2

Ensure a competent workforce through the assessment of staff competencies, the provision of individual training and professional development, and the provision of a supportive work environment.

A health department workforce development plan ensures that staff development is addressed, coordinated, and appropriate for the health department’s needs. Staff job duties and performance should be regularly reviewed to note accomplishments and areas that need improvement. This should not be a punitive process but one that identifies needs for employee training or education. This approach can point out gaps in competencies and skills for the health department and provide workforce development guidance for individual staff members.
