What Are You Doing to Reduce the Number of Pay Problems? A Discussion About Your Corporate Commitment on Pay

A government-wide corporate priority for fiscal year 2018-19 is Supporting Efforts to Address the Pay System.

Join APEX in a discussion where you can share how you are meeting this commitment and hear about the efforts of others.

The results of this discussion will be summarized and shared for the benefit of the entire executive community.

October 25

Will you meet the Corporate Priority of Building a Diverse Public Service?

As part of our 2018-19 performance agreements, Executives are asked to identify recruitment and development activities to increase the social and cultural diversity of our workforce, in order to better reflect the population we serve and improve decision making. This includes defining diversity goals with respect to the needs of their own organization, implementing the appropriate recruitment and development activities and measuring progress.

Will you be positioned to report favorably on that commitment?

Join your colleagues in a conversation about that priority so that we can all benefit from one another’s experiences and ideas. In doing so, you will be able to share your thoughts and gain the insight and ideas of others with regards to this priority.

APEX will share some ideas in a handout which will be provided to event participants.

This event is part of our “EXpressions” series.

Date & Registration:

The session will be held on Thursday, October 25, 2018, from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm (EST).

You can participate in person (at the APEX Offices, 75 Albert Street – Suite: 400, Ottawa, ON.) or by webinar. To register, please click below and clearly indicate if would like attend in person or via webinar/teleconference.
