Human Resources are one of the greatest investments made by the member communities.
More than ever, the Algonquin communities realize the importance of hiring the most qualified employees in order to provide the best possible services to their members. These employees must also be retained, trained, adequately compensated and sometimes disciplined. Within this context that the Tribal Council has established a human resources department to support communities with regards to the management of their Human Resources.
- Assistance in the Interview process (Screening process of candidates, developing interview questionnaires (including practical tests), sample letters to candidates, etc.);
- Producing and updating Job Postings;
- Post-interview / Appeal process;
- Provide advice on human resource issues, for example discipline;
- The Human Resources Advisor can be part of the community’s recommendation board;
- Assists in the development of salary scales;
- Provide information on work norms upon request.
