For Kevin Arthaud, senior employment development specialist for the Missouri Department of Transportation in Hannibal, every day is training day. The 29-year-old is a senior member of a team responsible for training 5,100 employees with an annual budget of about $200,000. With help, he created and implemented two statewide development programs from scratch, with a third going online in January.
The Maintenance Leadership Academy, which Arthaud manages, focuses on 600-plus employees who lead or aspire to lead programs in their field. Each participant completes a structured curriculum on a range of key skills, including budgeting and IT, and shadows other leaders, which helps with succession planning.
Arthaud also assisted in developing the department’s Gear Up onboarding program. It aims to shift the emphasis for all new hires from classroom training to "just-in-time" individual development, a model that has since been used as a benchmark by other employers nationally.
And in January, Arthaud’s employer expects to roll out the Professional Development Institute, which provides a customized curriculum developed through extensive research. He has conducted more than 100 focus groups across Missouri and invested hundreds of hours in creating a program that reflects the needs of his agency’s employees.
Arthaud attributes his success to his teammates and management, who he says have given him the autonomy and trust to build these programs. His boss says he "has a heart for servant leadership and is truly moving MoDOT forward."
