What we do

Integrated Talent Blueprint

The Integrated Talent Blueprint is just that, a blueprint for how the City will build and manage our people. Building upon, and replacing, the People Practices Strategy, the Talent Blueprint is a plan that integrates and aligns with the Corporate Strategic Plan. By focusing resources and energy on key priorities and actions, the City will be able to continue to engage a diverse, high performing and innovative group of employees.

Strategic Plan

The 2012-2016 Corporate Strategic Plan serves as an important tool for setting priorities, making decisions, and managing operations for years to come. It is meant to inspire the residents of Guelph and the employees at the City to consider how we can make a difference, in our neighbourhoods and in the world.

Making a difference

The most important aspect of “Making a Difference” is our people, therefore thinking about and planning our workforce for now and in the future is very important. From big projects like the Community Energy Plan to small ones like the production of your Guelph Community Guide, the City of Guelph is making meaningful differences that affect both life at home and the big picture.
