Human Resources (HR) professionals perform a variety of roles at the regional and departmental level to ensure that operational and strategic HR needs are being met. They provide support to managers and employees on such areas as: staffing and recruitment, labour relations, job classification and compensation. They participate in the development of HR initiatives such as learning and professional development, employee assistance and employment equity programs; plan organizational staffing needs; interpret and implement HR policies; and provide training in HR specialty areas.
This is a very exciting time for HR in the Public Service of Canada-especially DND-the largest federal government department. Civilians in HR are planning for and implementing strategies to address public service renewal initiatives (i.e. recruitment, information technology, etc.). This includes the development and implementation of a new National Civilian Recruitment Strategy and a new PeopleSoft Human Resources Management System (HRMS).
