Every member of our Workforce, full- or part-time, is required to complete several mandated compliance trainings during the month of January in order to remain on active duty. Our Learning Management System (LMS) software, available at https://northernrivers.csod.com/, was designed to facilitate this process. All Workforce members with regular computer access are expected to complete these trainings online. We will offer a limited number of in-person trainings only for those without regular computer access. Below are some guidelines on accessing these trainings:

At our recent Fall Listening Tour, you heard us talk about the project to replace one of the existing residences on the Academy Road campus with a new building featuring an integrated services design. As we prepare to break ground in spring 2018, we have identified the need for a dedicated project workspace to accommodate project management and planning, hold meetings, and otherwise serve as a working home for this project.
As part of our recent listening tour and Workforce Recognition Awards, we also honored a group of employees for reaching career milestones with the organization. Click here for the list of employees celebrating 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 40 years with us this year.
