“What an honour to once again be recognized as one of Manitoba’s top employers,” says David Rew, Interim President of RRC.
“The College is an employer of choice in our province and this ongoing recognition is the result of the more than 2,500 dedicated people who work at RRC. We’re an organization dedicated to the success of our people, and our People Plan strategy fosters that environment at the College.”
A comprehensive human resources strategy, the People Plan has allowed RRC to be an employer of choice through a variety of initiatives related to recruitment, retention, professional development, succession, total rewards, labour relations and organizational effectiveness.
RRC provides exceptional benefits, such as three weeks of vacation for new employees, maternity top-up payments, a defined benefit pension plan, a flexible health care plan, and an on-site daycare. The College was also recognized for its efforts in improving environmental sustainability, which earlier this year earned it a designation as one of Canada’s 50 Greenest Employers for 2014.
“The positive work environment that we have worked so hard to foster offers many benefits for our employees,” says Rew. “It makes RRC more competitive in recruiting new talent. It reduces staff turnover and it improves productivity because satisfied employees who are empowered in their roles are enthusiastic about their work.
“It also creates an environment in which people know they are a significant and vital part of an organization committed to excellence.”
