Our Recruitment Philosophy
Provide employment accommodation during the recruitment process
During the recruitment process, applicants have the right to request accommodation.
Applicants invited to participate in an assessment process (such as an interview
or testing) and who require accommodation, should discuss their needs with us.
For instance, someone with a disability may require alternate formats for written
materials, or physical adjustments to a computer set-up.
Everyone is different, so we will take into account individual accessibility needs.
Another type of accommodation would be a candidate request to reschedule an interview
or testing date because of a religious holiday.
Hire Based on Merit
All our recruitment decisions are based on valid, practical and measurable approaches
that ensure hiring on the basis of merit. This means hiring the candidate whose
qualifications best meet the requirements to do the job.
Provide Broad Access
We are committed to providing broad access to employment opportunities so that diverse
job seekers can apply to positions across Ontario and to ensuring our workforce
represents the diverse communities we serve. There are no geographic restrictions
on positions available to the public. In addition, we have targeted outreach and
advertisements of job opportunities to various communities across Ontario.
Demonstrate our OPS values
Our recruitment process reflects our mission to serve the public interest and uphold
the public’s trust. It demonstrates our commitment to our values of trust, fairness,
diversity, excellence, creativity, collaboration, efficiency and responsiveness.
