As indicated in the MAF, the Government of Canada wishes to ensure that each "department has the people, work environment and focus on building capacity and leadership to assure its success and a confident future for the Public Service of Canada."
The increasing emphasis on professional competencies within the Government of Canada, the convergence of skills in the context of contemporary information technology (IT) and the evolution of library, archives and information specializations within academic institutions are issues and environmental factors that informed the institution's need to implement workforce and engagement strategies for employees.
In particular, the workforce strategy will support and enable the implementation of LAC's Modernization Innovation Initiatives (MII). LAC's engagement strategy is in part the product of a strong workforce strategy. It will be the long-term result of concrete actions that managers take in day-to-day operations, such as transparent decision making, consistent internal communications and sincere efforts to ensure that employees feel valued and empowered. Both strategies will support the goals and objectives of the MIIs by focussing attention on the important people issues within the organization. The future success of LAC depends significantly on the skills, energy and commitment of its people. Consequently, the institution must attract, develop and retain employees of the highest quality and provide a working environment that will allow employees to maximize their contribution to the achievement of the institution's goals.
LAC received an overall score of 62.4 and a rating of "acceptable" as a result of the rating scale in the AoM for People Management. In the previous Round, LAC's performance was also rated "acceptable" for AoM 10. Direct comparisons with last year cannot be made, as the AoM for People Management (10) and the performance measures have changed.
