There is more to working at Energy, Mines and Resources than your job. We have several committees, whose members organize a variety of events throught the year. You are welcome to get involved and join a committee, or participate and attend one of their many events. At EMR we like to keep everyone in the loop, so we produce an electronic newsletter with department announcements, updates, and staff submissions that gets sent directly to your inbox every Friday morning.
Employee Engagement: the Employee Engagement Committee was formed to consider how employee engagement can be improved in our department. We want your input so we can make our department a fun and productive place to work.
Employee Recognition: This program is designed to promote a work environment that is supportive and inclusive and one that reflects our mission, vision and values. You are given an opportunity to nominate your colleagues and awards are presented at an annual ceremony.
Wellness Committee: Our wellness program is committed to the improvement of our employees' mental and physical health through education and participation. Committee members take turns planning and running a variety of programs including a Healthy Lunch series, special classes at local gyms and a variety of in-house challenges.
Social Committee: The social committee organizes a variety of social activities for Energy, Mines and Resources staff, and, in many cases, their families. Get involved in their annual Golf Social, Summer Barbecue and various prize draws.
Health and Safety: This committee represents all Energy, Mines and Resources employees. It is the principle forum for consultation on, and the development of solutions to, safety and health problems in the workplace.
Week in Review (WiR) Newsletter: This electronic newsletter is emailed directly to staff every Friday morning. With so many people working in our offices around the Yukon, it is a great way to keep everyone up-to-date on department announcements, coming events and programs. Staff are welcome to make submissions too!
