Nutrition Tips Winter 2015

Children who have meals with their family not only eat better and are healthier; they learn to socialize and do better in school. Family meals give a time and place to keep up with what is going on with everyone, help each other out, and tell family stories. Enjoying family meals help to keep food in its place as only one of life's great pleasures. Pay attention to the food and enjoy it when it is time to eat, forget about it between times. A rushed morning without breakfast can make eating well challenging. Try these quick breakfast ideas: A long afternoon commute can make eating well challenging. Pack a snack for the afternoon before your ride so you aren’t over hungry when you get home. Healthy food choices at home and at school can help students do better in school and be healthier over all. Part of learning about healthy eating is practicing. If your children’s’ school does not teach food preparation, ask your school administration how you can help to support offering classes. Snack foods like chips, candy, and pop fill children up, but don’t supply any of the nutrition they need to grow and learn. These foods should not be offered in school. Help the school community council and school administration in your children’s school to promote healthy foods in the school.

Human Resources

Human resource management is based on the premise that the organization's workforce is vital to the accomplishment of the goals and objectives of the organization.

With trends to higher service standards, increased usage of technology, more competition for skilled professionals and increasing/changing legislation, both employees and the employer are stretched to keep pace.

Currently in the Sun Country Health Region, the Human Resource Department (HR) coordinates the numerous managerial and organizational programs that assist in achieving both employees' and our Region's objectives of service, work and safe practices.

The Department includes functions that ensure employees are qualified and able to fulfil responsibilities that often span 24 hours per day and seven days per week.

In addition, the Human Resources Department ensures that the administrative systems are implemented to recognize the contributions of staff while ensuring that organizational needs are monitored.

Sun Country Health Region has approximately 2,377 employees positioned in over 200 different jobs across 28 facilities. Over 95 per cent of these staff members are in the scope of a collective agreement. Three (3) unions represent these employees.

Some of the key functions of the Human Resources Department are:

  • Labour Relations
  • Collective Agreement Administration
  • Grievance Administration
  • Human Resource Policies
  • Human Resource Planning
  • Recruitment/Staffing
  • Immigration
  • Orientation
  • Training and Development
