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 City’s 2019-2023 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 community as we become future ready.

Leadership Charter

The City of Guelph leadership team, including Union Presidents and employee stakeholders have collaboratively developed the City’s Leadership Charter. This Charter identifies leadership commitments- a series of expectations for being a leader at the City of Guelph. New and existing leaders will be expected to demonstrate the behaviours associated with each commitment.

Labour relations

The City values the work of our employees and the services they provide to our community. The City administers seven collective agreements with various unions. Our goal is to offer fair, equitable and competitive compensation packages for employees, by negotiating agreements that are affordable for Guelph taxpayers.
