About FSIS
Office of Outreach, Employee Education and Training
Organization and Employee Development Branch
The Center for Learning's Organization and Employee Development Branch (OEDB), provides a multi-functional approach to training and organization effectiveness through leadership development, coaching, and consulting.
Many of today's leaders in both the private and public sectors are finding that they are experiencing rapid change and reorganization, accompanied by shifting priorities that lead to new organizational goals and objectives. Organizational development is a process that supports the improvement of workplace performance by effectively managing change and providing the ability to proactively address these issues.

The Organization and Employee Development Branch (OEDB) has a certified team of internal consultants that work with individuals and/or groups in FSIS so that they can achieve superior results.

OEDB collaborates with Agency managers, supervisors, and team leaders to enable them to identify and solve their problems and achieve desired outcomes. The training and professional expertise enables employees to use a wide range of learning methods including face-to-face, online training and/or blended learning.

The OEDB is professionally committed to USDA's Cultural Transformation vision, and embraces the Agency's Strategic Plan. The training offered supports continuous improvement and learning to create an inclusive FSIS environment where all employees and customers are treated with dignity and respect.

Training provided by the OEDB is geared to strengthen core competencies and to close internal knowledge gaps. OEDB professionals also serve as facilitators and process consultants to guide employees through the challenges of navigating difficult interpersonal and team dynamics.
