Why Work for KHCAS?

Why Work for KHCAS?

The Kawartha Haliburton Children’s Aid Society is committed to hiring and retaining exceptional people to support the Vision, Mission, Values and Strategic Directions by establishing a Workplace of Choice.

Employee Well Being:

To support the organizational commitment for employee health and well being, KHCAS has developed the Continuum of Care for Employee Well Being based on the foundational principles of Take care of yourself – Take care of each other – Take care of this place. The Well being strategy was developed based on research and feedback from our employee group. Current well being initiatives include

  • Employee Wellness Committee
  • Employee and Family Assistance Program
  • Critical Incident Debriefing
  • Annual Debriefings
  • Joint Health & Safety Committee

Principles of Respectful Behaviour:

In collaboration with the employee group, the Principle’s of Respectful Behaviour were created to establish a common basis for our work environment:

We are a COMPASSIONATE workplace that recognizes the STRENGTHS of individuals.

Every member of our organization is committed to improving the outcomes of CHILDREN & FAMILIES.

We value MUTUAL RESPECT and SUPPORT in our workplace and assume good intent.

INTEGRITY, TRUST, HONESTY and INCLUSIVENESS are the foundations of our practices and policies.

EMPLOYEE WELL BEING is integral to our success.

We encourage DIVERSITY through INCLUSIVE and COLLABORATIVE practice.

We promote PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY and RESPONSIBILITY through direct and effective COMMUNICATION and TRANSPARENCY across the organization.

Training and Development:

KHCAS supports a work environment that promotes continuous learning and innovation. All new employees complete a comprehensive orientation program and training based on their position with the Society. Child Welfare workers also complete an extensive 8 module program in preparation for the position.

In addition, training opportunities are routinely offered to the employee group to build capacity and assist the Society in achieving the Strategic Directions. These opportunities may be internally developed, through PART (Practice & Research Together) or the Ontario Association of Children’s Aid Society’s continuing education program.

Benefits and Compensation:

KHCAS offers competitive salaries and an extensive benefit program including extended health benefits, dental coverage, life insurance and short-term and long-term disability programs. Society employees are also eligible to participate in the Ontario Municipal Employee Retirement Systems (OMERS) pension plan with employee and employer shared contributions.
