Employee Development Begins with Conversations

At FP&M, career development resources have always been in demand. Now is the time to make the most of your semi-annual Performance Management & Development Program (PMDP) conversation with your supervisor.

By getting creative with our online training approach in a time when in-person training is not as accessible, we hope to assist your development planning options as an FP&M employee.

New Year’s Resolution?

This January, make it a new year’s resolution to collaborate with your supervisor during your Midpoint Conversation and use the resources below to plan your development opportunities beyond the classroom.
