Develop and Recognize You

Wellesley celebrates employees who have used innovative ideas, approaches, or techniques in their work and who collaborated successfully in pursuit of a goal or objective. Pursuing new ways of working and working together collaboratively require skills in communication, productivity and innovation.  Wellesley offers employee development programs aimed at building these skills.  See below for our current and future Develop and Recognize You programming or email working@wellesley.edu for more information.
