Why Work at Peel?

A Recognized Leader in Public Sector Management

  • Together We're Better - At the Region of Peel, we celebrate our successes and reward 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 associations.

  • Strategic Plan - The Region's Strategic Plan - charts the long-term vision for the communities in Peel, and the Region's role in achieving that vision. It is updated at the beginning of each term of Regional Council and guides the work of the Council and staff.

  • Striving for Excellence - As a Gold member of the National 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.

    Additional information regarding the Alumni Group can be found at the following website www.peelregion.ca/alumni.

  • Benchmarking/Measurement Initiatives - 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.
