At WJS Canada, our ‘Strength in People’ style of management is a balance between relationship based service and accountability in the effective use of resources. Trust, strong connections, innovation and results are the pillars of our mandate.
Our principles of management include:
- Services that are focused locally and supported nationally
- Services that are community based
- An outcome oriented approach
- A broad and well-dispersed organization
- Virtually connected sites
- Empowered, decentralized decision making
WJS Canada attends to the individual needs of each program or facility, providing support of daily operations and management. All services are carefully monitored through licensing regulations, annual ministry compliance checks, audited financial statements and mandated accreditation standards. Our focus is on individual results, well-being, health and safety of the employees.
It is not our style to manage from behind our desks. We are hands-on, in the field and prepared to respond quickly and properly.
We manage by developing our core strength: our people. We give employees the tools to do the job, developing their competence and their confidence. We collaborate at all levels to increase employee capacity, productivity and recognition. We conduct training programs to ensure professional development and build skills, employee morale, employee safety, health, loyalty and satisfaction.
Developing people includes respecting employees work-life balance through flexible hours, locations and duties. We support our staff with assistance and benefit packages, innovative wellness programs and compassion for the life challenges they face.
