excellence. Employee service excellence is recognized
each year with awards for long service, customer
service, creative solutions, workplace environment
and community service.
Awards - The Region is an award-winning
organization, recognized by a wide range
of municipal, professional and not-for-profit
Strategic Plan - The Region's Strategic

Quality Institute (NQI), the Region of Peel
has a commitment to achieve recognized standards
of excellence by assessing our businesses and
programs against NQI public sector criteria
though in our own Excellence Journey.
ROP’s Alumni Group - It’s official! The Region of Peel has launched its first Alumni Group.
To give you all some background, this Group was established in response to interest expressed by a number of former employees. The purpose of the Group is to provide a forum for former employees to stay connected with the Region. While doing so, alumni members will receive information on regional news and events. They will also receive information on how they can participate in activities and volunteer opportunities such as the mentoring program and the United Way campaign.
On November 26, 2007, the first dinner meeting of the Alumni Group took place. All were welcomed by Laura Nashman, Commissioner of Employee & Business Services, Kent Gillespie, Commissioner of Corporate Services and Mike Goldrup, Director of Human Resources.
An Executive Alumni Committee was established that evening. The members are Larry Hawes, Chair and Bruce Ritchie, Secretary/Treasurer. This executive group will likely grow larger as the Alumni Group gets underway in 2008.
- Peel is a leader in external benchmarking
and internal unit cost tracking. This is critical
to the Corporation's analysis of competitive
opportunities for service delivery. Regional
Council endorses program benchmarking as an
important "continuous improvement"
management tool that helps in identifying and
adopting management "best practices"
that in turn leads to lower program costs and/or
improved service quality.
Innovative Partnerships - Regional
departments work in partnership with other governments,
outside agencies and surrounding municipalities
to develop creative and cost-effective solutions
for enhanced service and program delivery.
