SPLC is excited to announce a new project called Investing in Our Teams! This project will see staff take part in interactive training sessions focused on psychological safety and diversity. They will also play an active role in enhancing our workplace by implementing Decent Work practices and engaging in the development of a Performance Development Program.
We are working on supporting long-term recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic in our community, and the Government of Canada’s Community Services Recovery Fund will help us adapt and modernize our operations to meet that goal.
How will it do that?
- Increased capacity on psychological safety will mean that everyone at SPLC can be themselves while they’re working. That means using their individuality and creativity while supporting our seniors. It also means that our teams work together to their fullest effectiveness.
- Building capacity to serve equity-deserving groups will mean that we can reach seniors who might not otherwise be able to access our services. Equity-deserving groups are communities which experience significant collective barriers in participating in society due to disadvantage and/or discrimination. This could include attitudinal, historic, social and environmental barriers based on age, ethnicity, disability, economic status, gender, nationality, race, sexual orientation and transgender status, etc. (Queen’s University Human Rights and Equity Office).
- Relaunching of the Decent Work Committee which will build upon previous work done to champion Decent Work conditions and practices within our workplace.
- Ensuring a sustainable Performance Development program is in place to support staff growth and development.
