The Office of Human Resources’ Center for Excellence provides quality training for employees.  Its mission is to enable achievement of individual excellence and organizational high performance by creating continuous learning and development opportunities for all BEP employees.  Its vision is to bring continuous educational opportunities to the world's premier securities printer.

Goals of the Office of Human Resources’ Center for Excellence:

Add to BEP productivity through individual improvement in:

  • Leadership and Management
  • Technical Experience
  • Business Excellence

The Center for Excellence provides BEP employees with assistance in all their training and development needs, whether they are professional or organizational.  The Center for Excellence was formed in response to advancing technology and the need to prepare employees for such changes, and to make them aware of skills they may be underutilizing.

The Center for Excellence will make a concentrated effort toward improving the basic skills of the employees in the jobs most affected by changes in technology and will provide an array of different training vehicles such as computer-based, self-paced, video, as well as some other traditional training methods.

The BEP’s goal is that these varied learning opportunities will enrich employees' careers and promote organizational excellence.
