Some of the members of this committee will remember that we were in dire straits several years ago. We had the budget, but we would hire people and then they would leave. We didn't seem to be able to retain them and so on. Our director of human resources--who is here if you would like more details--put together a very comprehensive long-term recruitment plan.
We also looked at what a new generation of civil servants is looking for. Among other things, they're looking for interest in their job, trying to make a difference, and work-life balance. We try to stress these, not only in our recruitment, but in our personnel policies.
Over the last few years, as a whole generation moves to retirement, we have been able to recruit some very talented people. For the moment, they seem happy and not about to leave us.
