2012 Training Offered

Budget & Control Board

State government organizations are experiencing a variety of challenges such as shrinking budgets, downsizing, and restructuring. Employees are still responsible for achieving their agency's mission and goals while dealing with these challenges. OHR is offering open enrollment courses that will continue to help enhance employee performance during these tough times.

These courses and dates can be found on our website under the 2012-13 Calendar of Courses. All open enrollment courses can be taken as individual classes or participants may apply the completed classes towards the Associate Public Manager (APM) Certification Program or the Public Professional Development (PPD) Certification Program. The required courses for each certification program is listed on our website.

PerksCard Discount Card Program


The PerksCards that were distributed in August 2010 have expired, however, the PerksCard discount savings program is still active.

Since savings opportunities are based on geographical location, employees should use the appropriate information to register on-line and print new cards.

Please log onto: https://www.perkscard.com/en/Pages/Home.aspx and go to "Register Now." Under "Your Group Code," employees must enter the appropriate code.

Employees located in Richland and surrounding counties, will refer to attachment, "scohrcentral" (group code: scohrcentral11; employees in Greenville and surrounding counties, will refer to the attachment, "scohr north" (group code: scohrnorth11); and employees located in Charleston and surrounding counties, will refer to the attachment, "scohr south" (group code: scohrsouth11).

If you should have any questions, please contact your HR Consultant at 803-896-5300.

WeSave Discount Card Program


State employees can also use their WeSave cards when traveling, visiting local restaurants and merchants, or shopping on-line. WeSave is currently working hard to increase the number of vendors offering discounts to state employees. To find out who has been added to the list of participating merchants, simply check the WeSave website.

To recommend a vendor for WeSave participation, visit the "Employee Suggestions" component of the WeSave website. A WeSave representative will contact the vendor and provide them with the steps necessary to become a local WeSave vendor.
