The VIU People Plan: Getting Involved

People Plan Get Involved

November 6, 2019 - 2:00pm

The VIU People Plan is the plan for VIU’s people. It was created from the concerns, desires and ideas of VIU employees, which means it belongs to us all and its success depends on us.

This means there is space for every employee who wants to participate in making it a reality. There are five Invitations For Action, all of which have comprehensive 12-month and 12-36 month action plans which are waiting to be implemented.

The functionality of the People Plan microsite is currently being built out to enable individuals to upload their own content and share their success.  

Want to make a positive impact in your workplace?

Read the plan to choose an Invitation For Action:

  • Cultivate a Healthy Workplace Culture
  • Foster Diversity, Fairness and Truth and Reconciliation
  • Advance Operational Effectiveness and Innovation
  • Encourage Employee Well-being
  • Support Transformational Leadership and Professional Development
