Alberta’s healthcare system belongs to Albertans, whether they are seeking care, or providing care. We want Albertans that work for and with AHS engaged and involved in what we do, and that’s what Our People Strategy does.
Our People Strategy is about creating a culture in which everyone feels safe, healthy, valued and included, and can reach their full potential. Having an engaged workforce is shown to improve the care experiences of patients and families. Developed by involving and engaging tens of thousands of people including frontline staff, managers, physicians, volunteers, patient and family advisors and important partners such as the unions and regulatory bodies, Our People Strategy is about how we work better together.
Our vision, Healthy Albertans. Healthy Communities. Together., and our core values - AHS Cares (compassion, accountability, respect, excellence and safety) are inextricably tied to Our People Strategy.
Our People Strategy works together with our three other foundational strategies – Patient First Strategy, Strategy for Clinical Health Research, Innovation & Analytics, and our Information Management and Information Technology Strategy. Together, they guide our efforts sustain safe, high-quality healthcare delivery for the benefit of all Albertans.
