Vincentian is adopting a new people-centered approach for what has traditionally been called Human Resources. Each member of People Operations and Engagement has more defined roles and responsibilities to better serve the needs of employees and create opportunities to enhance productivity. Take a look at what’s changing.

People Operations and Engagement Specialists

Each facility has a designated People Operations and Engagement Specialist who is available to support staff and provide the resources and guidance they need to succeed in their jobs. In addition to answering questions from employees, the specialists also are taking a more proactive approach with staff and managers seeking opportunities to continuously improve culture and drive organizational improvements.
