This service includes career advisement, education evaluation
and information. It also includes career exploration for
those who are interested in making a career change.
Employees make an appointment with a Training and development
Specialist for individual consultation. The
consultation includes conversation about the employee's current
career situation and desired changes or outcomes. The
employee may be given career self-assessment to begin the
exploration process. Employees continue to meet as needed
until the goal has been met. This is a highly personalized
process in which the employee is not limited to a certain number
of visits. This service is free for all employees.

Community Spirit Program
Our Mission: City of Mesa employees making a difference
through community service and involvement.
The Community Spirit Program was created in 1997 to offer
employees more choices and to better coordinate our charitable
efforts. Community Spirit combines the Mesa United Way
Fund Drive and our volunteer efforts, such as the blood and food
drives and adopt-a-school activities all under one umbrella.
By giving employees more choices in which to donate their money,
and provide volunteer opportunities, the Community Spirit
Program hopes to encourage more employees to participate in
making their community a better place to live.
Flexible Work Environments
(With Supervisor's Approval)
Many City departments offer a flexible work schedule.
Certain positions in the City are eligible to job share.
These positions work part-time and share the job
responsibilities and benefits.
Promotional examinations are open to all City of Mesa employees
who meet the minimum qualifications in the City service.
An employee who has been demoted at their own request or for
cause may not compete in a promotional examination for ninety
(90) days after the effective date of the demotion. These
limitations may be waived by the Department Manager with
approval of the Human Resources Director and the City Manager.
If two (2) or more qualified employees apply for a promotional
opening, the Human Resources Director may require a competitive
examination to determine the best qualified candidate.
The City's Training and development Office has created the
Employee development Guide to provide training information and
establish important training standards for all full-time and
benefited part-time City of Mesa employees. (Benefited part-time
employees are eligible to participate in training opportunities
at the discretion of their department.) It defines and
establishes required and recommended training courses for
employees and supervisors. These training courses promote
employee knowledge, skills, and abilities and fulfill certain
competencies as recommended. Revisions to this guide will occur
periodically as new courses and competencies are identified and
developed, or as training mandates change.
The City supports the training and development process of all
employees and encourages management and employees to embrace and
pursue job related training opportunities whenever possible.
Through the continuous learning process, employees and
supervisors develop skills that help enhance job performance and
increase the overall effectiveness of City operations.

department. Employees must verify with their Department
