About Employee Involvement Groups

At NWTC we value the inherent worth of each employee at the College. We acknowledge we share many similarities with one another, yet also have our own unique backgrounds, experiences, needs, skills and stories. Employee Involvement Groups are voluntary, self-initiated employee groups that foster a diverse, inclusive workplace.

Employee Involvement Groups:

  • Align and support organizational mission, values, goals, business practices, and strategic direction.
  • Develop a sense of community and collaboration.
  • Foster innovation and build employees’ skills.
