Online Learning Resources for Workforce Development

Each month, we curate a collection of articles, videos, and other on-demand resources to support workforce learning and performance. Resources are grouped in six learning pathways.

 

Workplace Culture and Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI)

This training pathway provides DEI learning and growth opportunities to support workplace cultures where inclusion and belonging are centered. These resources offer a range of learning options. The views and opinions expressed in these resources are those of the authors and do not reflect the official policy or position of DES. Learn more about DEI in Washington state from the Office of Financial Management and the Office of Equity.

Workforce Well-being and Support

Today's employees face many challenges to their well-being that can impact mental health and work performance. Promoting well-being practices and resources in the workplace helps reduce some barriers to seeking care and practicing self-care. In addition to these resources, the Washington State Employee Assistance Program offers support and resources for client organizations.
