The Riverside County Human Resources (HR) Department “Passport Program” is an innovative, fun, and creative travel-themed cross-training program intended to grow and develop our existing workforce. The program was developed internally by Riverside County HR’s Learning & Organizational Development division, in an effort to provide cross-training opportunities to staff who serve in a specialist capacity and would not otherwise have an opportunity to learn new skills or work outside of their specialist assignment.


Participation in the Passport Program enables a staff member to learn how to execute specific tasks and projects in a given functional area, by working with another staff member or team for a set period of time. The Passport Program benefits our employees, as well as our County departments, as it promotes future talent, development, and makes all parties familiar with the various functions of their department.


If you are interested in implementing the Passport Program within your department, please e-mail today for a consultation with our Program Development staff.

Happy travels!
