NCDOC makes culture a visible priority across the Command. In fact, we take deliberate steps to attract teammates for their personality, passion, and commitment to the team, as much as we do competence to include modifying our advertisements on CMS-ID for Sailors and USAJOBS for civilians. Our hiring panel is focused on choosing the right teammates to join our team, not mere employees to do a job. We affectionately refer to the team charged with inspiring these changes and shaping our Command Culture as our Culture Club. Where most Commands are comfortable with the reactive model governed by a Command Assessment Team (CAT), we take a proactive approach and favor shaping over merely assessing.
In an effort to give our potential teammates a glimps into the culture we are shaping, and help fuel the continued evolution across our team, we offer our New Teammate Handbook. This handbook was developed by our current teammates with future teammates in mind as we attract smart creatives to our team.
