Creating a Learning Culture that Supports One Amtrak Way…Defining a Strategy for the Future is the First Step

Amtrak strives to promote and measurably improve knowledge sharing, professional and technical development, learning and continuous improvement of all of our employees. The focus of this goal is creating a learning culture and knowledge‐based workforce at Amtrak.

Amtrak’s Integrated Talent Management and Total Rewards strategy have been in effect for two years now, and is a cornerstone in building One Amtrak Way and achieving our strategic goals. A project to build an Amtrak-wide Training & Employee Development strategy is underway which will begin shaping a culture that prioritizes learning as critical to our success.

A core working team of Amtrak colleagues from across the Business Lines and the functional areas has been partnering throughout their organizations to collect current-state data needed for this project and illustrate “how training gets done” today. This team has done a great deal of work to collect the right data from the right people. We hope you will join us in applauding their continuing effort.

The Training & Employee Development strategy will be the blueprint for transforming Amtrak into a learning culture and contributing to an Integrated Talent Management and Total Rewards environment that develops, attracts and retains the best fit talent and offers ongoing development and growth opportunities for colleagues who have made Amtrak the great organization it is today.
