Vision, Mission & Values


Our vision is to develop a healthy workplace where each one of us understands our contribution to the whole, where continuous learning, collaboration and creativity lead us to new developments, structures and opportunities. A workplace that is inclusive, and builds on our diversity, engagement and sense of community. One that is psychological safe, allowing for outstanding teaming, innovation and healthy risk taking. A learning organization that sets us apart - open, connected and purposeful.


MHW engages employees by providing opportunities for dialogue with the McGill leadership and a chance to help make McGill a better workplace. It encourages a sense of community among all University employees by ensuring an inclusive membership, and by promoting and facilitating staff participation in a range of interactive recognition, learning and developmental events that improve McGill for all.

Our mission is to become a workplace that embraces and encourages:

  • Continuous learning
  • Sharing of knowledge
  • Innovation, creativity and taking stock from what didn’t work
  • Accountability for meaningful results in support of our community
