     With leadership messages from Carina Celesia Moore, M.A., SPHR, CPLP, SHRM-SCP, Director of UC Davis Talent Management and Development, and Lyndon Huling, Ed.D., Interim Lead, Leadership Recruitment & Diversity Services, on January 8 our 18 School At Work (SAW) graduates were congratulated on their achievements and inspired to continue their career journeys.  Toby Boatwright, a member of this 2019 cohort, delivered a meaningful message about how SAW motivated him to begin making changes in his career strategy; one of which is returning to school. 

     Since 2006, UCDH has offered SAW as a career development program to our front line workforce making us the first Greater Sacramento Region's healthcare organization to provide this resource to our employees.  A blended learning program developed by Catalyst Learning, SAW's five-month curriculum includes goal setting, communication, grammar, reading, writing, math, medical terminology, and patient safety and satisfaction combined with personalized career development tools.  After graduation, one-third of UCDH's SAW alumni have received promotions and/or enrolled in school to begin or complete their educational pursuits.  

   The SAW program is only one of many career and leadership development programs, services, and classes that UCDH offers its employees (and their departments) at no-charge.
