Your development begins from your first day on the job, as an employee of the City of Richmond, with our Employee Orientation Program, until the day you retire, with our Getting Ready for Retirement sessions. The People Development team, within Human Resources, maintains overall responsibility to ensure there are adequate resources in place to develop staff to learn the skills and gain the abilities required to have a successful long-term career with the City.
