Working Towards the Next Generation of HR and Pay - Transcript
Coast to coast to coast
Five employee workshops
My mandate is to steer and guide the technology investments of the government of Canada, the architecture, standards, policies-it’s a big ship to steer and injecting innovation is now a part of it.
Dominic Rochon: We want to make sure that the next generation solution is not just driven by technology. Next generation will put the user at the centre of everything that we do, every step of the way.
Vernon Von Finckenstein: It will be something that’s user-centric, that’s tested, can be assessed on any platform, anywhere, anytime. And that’s something that our employees deserve.
Jacquie Manchevsky: We will have options that we’ll bring forward that will touch each public servant directly. We’re a bit one degree of separation from the very people that we are helping and working with.
Alex Benay: We’re introducing new ways of working, new ways of buying, new ways of designing. If there was ever a burning platform to try to do things differently it’s certainly this one.
Nancy Chahwan: The next generation solution from the initiation of hiring to the departure of our employees won’t wait to tomorrow. The next generation starts today.
We are changing the way we are engaging you in the conversation, and we are listening.
Alex Benay: We are going to have vendors, users, the unions, every day public servants, HR and pay administrators in a room together going back and forth with industry in a way that we’ve never done before.
Nancy Chahwan: I hope you have participated in the many workshops we have done from coast to coast.
Dominic Rochon: We are going to need employees and users with hands on keyboards.
Vernon Von Finckenstein: We want to work with industries to let them show us that they meet our digital standards. Let us try this solution before we buy it. Convince us that you would make the best partner for government.
Dominic Rochon: I’m very excited in the way we are achieving our objective. We are open, transparent and innovative in the way we are proceeding and this is just as exciting as the solution we will acquire.
Alex Benay: Everything that we’ve been preaching that we need to start doing as a system we are now starting to do. We’ve hired some of the best people and frankly, the public servants that we have on this team are motivated to get this done. My job is to get out of the way and make sure they have everything they need to execute properly.
