March 2023: Virtual Healthcare, RRSPs and LAPP, Annual Day of Mourning, Dayforce's New Look, Staff Recognition, & Staff Engagement

Posted on Mar 20, 2023

WCB Alberta - Annual Day of Mourning      

"Every year on April 28 we pay our respects to, and remember, the workers who have been killed, seriously injured, or suffered illness as a result of work-related incidents. Sadly, in 2021, Alberta lost 178 people to an occupational injury or disease.

Fortunately, occupational injuries and illnesses are preventable if workplace hazards are reported and properly addressed.  Please exercise your Alberta Workers' right to participate in discussions about safety issues that may impact you or others and report safety issues that need to be addressed to ensure the safety of yourself or others at the site.

As a way to pay respect for those people an outdoor ceremony is held at the Edmonton Legislature building on April 28th at 10am where moment of silence is observed.

2023 Employee Engagement Survey           

2023 Employee Engagement Survey is live until March 28th!!!

The survey should take less than 20 minutes to complete, and can be completed on most cellphones, tablets, or computers that have an internet connection. If you require the use of a computer to complete your survey, let your supervisor or manager know and a work computer will be made available to you. If you cannot complete the whole survey in one session, your progress will be saved, and you can finish later using your personal link.  

As a THANK YOU for participating, we are giving staff who complete the survey a $5 Tim Horton’s gift card. To claim yours, let the office know when you have completed the survey.   

Your feedback is very important and will inform future decision-making and policy work at Heartland Housing Foundation. We are grateful for your insight.
