The University of Alberta is an inspiring workplace where we create flourishing careers. The university is focused on continuing to build our culture of safety while enabling and empowering our people. Empowerment also drives the broader organizational culture in which we work and feeling empowered depends in part on how we interact, support and celebrate one another to succeed. Empowered workplaces attract talent, drive employee engagement, increase happiness and satisfaction and ultimately, drive innovation and performance. 

We foster this culture by staying in touch with the perspectives of faculty and staff through Shape: A Strategic Plan of Impact, our People Strategy, the Faculty & Staff Engagement Survey and by applauding accomplishments through our Recognition Programs. It is about refocusing on our culture and environment in ways that make us feel empowered, energized and supported.
