A Message from the AVP and CHIEF HUMAN RESOURCES OFFICER, Wanda McKenna


It is my privilege to be a member of our innovative and inclusive McMaster community which showcases the diverse talents of our more than 7,800 faculty, research, staff and student employees.

As we look to advance McMaster’s standing as a Top 100 University in the world, and a Top Employer within the Hamilton- Niagara Region, our Human Resources Services team continues to be focussed on creating a recognized workplace which helps us to retain, attract, develop and inspire our exceptional group of employees.

To promote an engaged, healthy and versatile workforce now and in future, HRS will continue to align our efforts to enable University priorities, collaborate with our various community partners to help them achieve their goals, deliver excellence in service and solutions, empower learning, as well as champion opportunities for individuals to grow their careers at McMaster.

On behalf of our HR team, I am pleased to share our new HR Strategic Plan with you. This document will showcase our priority areas of focus through to 2020, and how we will demonstrate our ongoing commitment and value to our University community.

We look forward to partnering with you
as we enhance existing and implement new programming, services and processes which will further McMaster’s reputation as a wonderful place to learn, work and thrive.
