While creating a more positive work environment for employees is a worthwhile goal in its own right, we are also aware that making a dedicated effort to improve the workplace culture can lead to other powerful gains as well. Creating positive, engaging work environments for employees can also support our focus on creating more positive, engaging learning environments for our students.
Just as importantly, fostering innovation depends on a collaborative approach—on including ideas and insight from across the District. This helps to ensure that innovations are viable and appropriate for our global market and our increasingly diverse Canadian society; furthermore, studies show that diverse teams actually produce more creative ideas than teams in which everyone shares a similar background.
Thus, we have devised a plan of action to address the recommendations of our Leadership study and to make a sincere effort to transform the culture of the District into one that engages and harnesses the abilities of everyone connected to it.
