In recognition that Red River College’s most important asset is its people, the People Plan was created to foster a culture in which all staff feel connected to and supported by the organization. This comprehensive human resources strategy positions RRC as an employer of choice through a variety of initiatives related to recruitment, retention, professional development, succession, total rewards, labour relations and organizational effectiveness.
