WRHA Recognized for Excellence in Human Resources Leadership

On March 12, 2009, the Winnipeg health region's Organizational Staff Development department accepted an award for Excellence in Leadership from the Human Resource Management Association of Manitoba.

Accountability is one of the region's key values. In 2007, the region implemented a sustainability plan for accountability programs to improve individual and team performance, and align accountabilities with the larger goals of the Winnipeg health region.

In the past 18 months, more than 660 staff have participated in the Accountability in Action workshop, over 1,500 staff have took part in the Agreements for Excellencesessions, and more than 90 managers have attended the Strategic Coaching workshop.

The results of regional accountability programs are impressive. Leadership teams have reported improvement in performance in 85 per cent of their success factors.

Meanwhile, teams who provide direct patient care have reported a 35 per cent improvement of their success factors.

Most importantly, these programs have translated into improved accountability for the Winnipeg health region. We thank staff for their commitment to learning and continuous improvement.
