OCS Annual Outcomes Report 2014-2015

Quality Improvements made by the Staff Training and Development Committee this Year In a response to staff and stakeholder feedback and suggestions and to meet/exceed COA training standards, a number of improvements and enhancements have been implemented this year, as follows: • Non-violent Crisis Intervention – recruited 4 staff members to train as internal CPI instructors. They attended 4 days of intense training in December 2014 and did their first training in February 2015. • Wisdom Within was launched in November 2014. This TED Talk-style lunch and learn presentations provide opportunities for staff to share their expertise, provide training and develop their skills as presenters/facilitators. This also met the Committees objective of identifying internal expertise and creating a knowledge bank. • Relias Learning – all staff are now using the system. In addition, Relias now handles event registration, license tracking and expiry date reminders. Performance review tracking has also been added to the Relias system in order to improve completion rates. • New Staff Orientation Workshop - material was reviewed/revised and workshop was facilitated by Deputy Executive Director, Tammy Dyer. • Outcomes Evaluation and Logic Model Training – Provided to all programs to ensure the program models and tools are consistent with program objectives, and can be easily translated into the new electronic record system. Social Wellness Committee The Social Wellness Committee consists of a committed and energetic group of staff who assume most of the responsibility for planning and organizing staff social events, to promote inter-program sharing and strengthen employee engagement and happiness at work. The Committee organizes events for staff to connect with one another throughout t the year. This past year we focused our lunch time events to coincide with various cultural and ethnic celebrations. On average over 60 people attend each gathering and over 200 staff attended the annual Christmas Party. Events included: • Annual Christmas Events for staff and children • Chili Cook-off • COA Celebration of Success • Curry Cook- off • Dawali • Golf Tourney • Lunar New Year Celebration • Salmon BBQ • Summer BBQs
