The Division of Personnel (DOP) of West Virginia State Government underwent some major changes in 2012. The Director of DOP identified the need for its internal subject matter experts to reach out and train other human resource professionals statewide. She charged the Organization and Human Resource Development section to work with the subject matter experts to develop their presentation skills.
After three successful events, the Division can proudly say that the Director’s foresight has led to improved skills and knowledge in the HR community and better relations among state agencies. It has also added great value to the professional development of the subject matter experts that participated in the training sessions.
