• Seniority Lists required by the Collective Agreement are now provided on a regular basis. Some reports are generated every 2 months while others are provided annually (January) or bi-annually (January and July). • Review of Executive and Senior Management Team job descriptions in collaboration with an external consultant Employee Recognition Staff recognition is important at OCS and has become formalized in policy in the past year to ensure that its importance is not underestimated. Our Staff Survey results indicate a high level of employee engagement, and staff feeling supported and respected. We want to maintain and grow this appreciative culture! Staff receive formal service recognition every 5 years. A total of 49 individuals received a service award in 2014 (Figure 2) . The award consists of a certificate, small gift, and letter acknowledging the years of service and signed by the Executive Director and a member of the Board of Directors. After 25 years of service, employees also receive a plaque specially picked out by their supervisor. Managers are encouraged to present the award publicly, and individualize the presentation.

Figure 2 shows the number of service awards given out in 2014. A total of 49 individuals received an award, most of them for 5 years of service.
