Staff Development

The Faculty of Engineering at McMaster University recognizes that the staff it employs are central to all of its academic and research endeavors. Assisting the development of each individual will ultimately enhance the Faculty of Engineering’s performance and status as a quality employer within McMaster.

All University staff have a right and responsibility to continuously improve the capabilities required for their current roles, and to consider development required for possible future roles at higher levels or in other organizational units. While staff members should proactively develop their capabilities, staff development is a shared responsibility. Managers within the Faculty of Engineering have a key responsibility in supporting staff to identify their skills and development needs through regular feedback and in encouraging them to take up development opportunities.
