Knowledge That Works
Workforce learning and development is vital to UB's success. Rapidly changing policies, procedures, work methods and technology requires that our talented workforce possess the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to adopt and adapt to new process and techniques.
In a rapidly changing world, UB maintains a focus with an engaged strategy. We continue to design, develop and offer career development guidance and learning to empower our workforce in identifying and achieving career goals that align with the needs of the institution.
The UB culture is one that actively supports participation in learning activities and the application of new knowledge and skills on the job.
