What is Human Resources (HR) and what are we committed to?

Values = Teamwork, Trust, Inclusion, Goals, Ethical Conduct

The typical duties of an HR Unit include;

  • Develop tools, procedures and metrics for recruitment, training, and other functions of HR.
  • Provide guidance on general workplace issues.

At Sagkeeng Child & Family Service, HR’s overarching aim is to be strategic by creating an HR strategy and aligning that strategy to the specific needs and unique culture of the Sagkeeng Child & Family Services agency (SCFS).
