Human Resources Master Plan 

In its 2010-2014 Community Strategic Plan, the City of Brantford identified one of its four strategic goals to be “Excellence in Governance and Municipal Management” which states an intention to “pursue excellence by being recognized as an employer of choice in the municipal sector”. In addition, the City identified a supporting strategic action to “develop a comprehensive human resources plan that addresses the needs for staff training, development and succession planning.”

The Human Resources (HR) Master Plan identifies and prioritizes actions to ensure continued and efficient delivery of core operational services while focusing on the enhancement of value-added talent programs and human resources advisory services. The Plan was developed through a review process that took place between August and December 2013. The process included a comprehensive assessment of the current state of human resources while highlighting associated gaps, priorities and areas of greatest opportunity. The Plan supports the City of Brantford’s goal to be an attractive employer and a 21st century city.
