To fulfill its mandate, LAC currently has 1,143 employees distributed throughout 19 occupational groups. The management of Canada's documentary heritage requires a staff with specialized and wide-ranging professional, technological and administrative skills with the proven ability to learn, to work as a team, to perform multidisciplinary work, research and analysis, communicate, network, and ensure client satisfaction. Moreover, to deal with numerous changes taking place within the federal public service and to tackle the many challenges related to its mission, LAC has a growing need for a pool of flexible, mobile employees who are open to new ideas and practices.
The management of LAC resources is a complex and highly important task. And the challenges are numerous, as demonstrated by the key objectives of LAC's 2008-2011 Business Plan: managing careers and knowledge, developing and strengthening leadership and management skills, meeting the operational needs of a changing organization, solving a number of hiring and recruitment problems, and creating a motivating and empowering work environment. For this reason, LAC has adopted a governance structure designed to incorporate human resource issues into the institution's strategic management and to increase stakeholder cooperation.
