OD Welcomes Next ACEP Class
The NIH Office of the Director recently welcomed the second class of the Administrative Career Enhancement Program. ACEP is an initiative of the OD Voice, a committee with representatives from each OD office dedicated to analyzing the results of OD’s segment of the Employee Viewpoint Survey.
The OD Voice explores how OD can improve its performance regarding concerns identified in the survey. The committee also capitalizes on areas rated highly satisfactory and creates avenues to share this information and other best practices more broadly across OD.
ACEP was created to address the needs of junior-level OD staff. The program provides training and developmental opportunities, increases organizational knowledge, increases OD identity, enhances participants’ professional networks and provides mentoring opportunities. The program is offered at no cost to OD federal staff; participants are nominated by their supervisors.
