To state the obvious, the municipal sector is facing increasing challenges with respect to recruiting staff that have the skills and leadership experience that are required for local government service delivery.
ONWARD is a leadership and talent management initiative that provides support to the municipal sector, offering a strategic approach to human resources management across Ontario. The organization’s objective is to ensure staffing needs are met for the future sustainability of municipal public service delivery.
This initiative was started in 2016 and has continued to work to raise awareness of, and provide innovative solutions to, municipalities in light of increasing recruitment and demographic challenges in a changing labour force.
As part of its workplan, ONWARD prepared a number of deliverables intended to assist with raising awareness of the current situation.
