The County of Renfrew is a large organization offering a wide range of essential services to the residents of the County. As such, our workforce includes many individuals with the diverse backgrounds and skills required to provide quality services.
All County employees must perform their duties in a manner that maintains and enhances public confidence and our corporate competencies of: honesty and integrity, client service orientation, professionalism, and focus on results. Trust and mutual respect are the cornerstones of any relationship between the public and its government. Furthermore, as an organization entrusted with public funds, the County is obligated to ensure the protection and appropriate use of all its resources and assets.
We are proud of our employees and the services they deliver to ratepayers. It recognizes that it is only through the commitment and effort of each employee that the excellent quality of these services is achieved and public trust is maintained in this level of government. As its most valuable and important asset, County employees therefore are expected to demonstrate the highest standards of behaviour.
All employees are expected to be aware of, and comply with, this Employee Code of Conduct (the “code”) and its corporate and departmental related policies.
This Code clarifies the County’s expectations of its employees, and re-affirms our commitment to caring for all our communities’ needs and maintaining fiscal responsibility on behalf of the public and our employees. It provides a guide for consistent behaviour in delivering services. It brings together the principles contained in various County documents, departmental policies and plans. In short, this Code is simply a formal statement of the policies and principles of conduct the County has always embraced. Contravention of this Code is a serious matter to the County and the public, and will be treated as such.
Public service is a public trust, and as an organization entrusted with public funds, it is critical that every County employee be committed to the highest standards of ethical behaviour. It is in this spirit that this Code of Conduct was developed.
