Human Resources releases 2018 annual report

Themes include employee wellness, recruitment, and professional development

June 11, 2019 — 

What does our university work environment look like? Who makes up the employee population and how are we supporting employees throughout their career?

Human Resources invites faculty and staff to explore these questions and more in the Human Resources 2018 Annual Report.

Darlene Smith, acting associate vice-president, human resources, says, “We want the annual report to enhance our dialogue and provide transparency as we work together to achieve a meaningful work environment for all employees.”

The annual report is based on the 2018 calendar year and is organized by eight themes, including equity, diversity, and inclusion; recruitment; staff relations; and outstanding workplace supports.

Readers can discover employee groups and compensation distribution, learn about the variety of professional development opportunities, and explore various employee wellness programming and supports.

The report also highlights new efforts in human resources, which includes the new Indigenous Summer Student Internship Program (ISSIP) and creation of an immigration consultant role to advise on immigration matters and regulatory compliance.

“We will continue to invest in our community of people to ensure that we are creating an engaging work environment,” adds Smith.

“We strive to create a place where people feel connected, safe and supported so they can achieve both their personal and professional goals at the university.”

The human resources annual report supports the University of Manitoba’s priority to build a community that creates an outstanding learning and working community, as outlined in the University’s strategic plan, Taking Our Place. The U of M is proud to be an employer of choice within Manitoba, and one of Canada’s best diversity employers.
