Building a strong APS culture begins with you. Explore strategies and activities to build employee engagement, strengths, core values, and change & resilience below.
Change is happening every day. Change management and resilience guides how we prepare, equip and support individuals to successfully adopt change in order to drive success and outcomes.
Core Values are our behavioral guiding principles. APS’s Core Values are:
Put students and schools first
Commit to teamwork
Focus on communication
Demonstrate respect for others
Act with integrity
Embrace & drive change
Focusing on what’s strong, rather than what’s wrong, allows us to live our best life at work and everywhere else. When employees have the opportunity to focus on their strengths, they are six times as likely to be engaged.
Engaged employees are involved in, enthusiastic about and committed to their and work and contribute to their team in a positive manner. Understanding, measuring and creating employee engagement fuels productivity.
