Strategic Pillar 1: Build a Strong Team

Building a strong team is foundational to the success of any organization. This pillar focuses on cultivating a talented, motivated, and cohesive workforce that is aligned with our values, vision, and mission.

By investing in recruiting top talent, providing comprehensive training and development programs, fostering a culture of collaboration and innovation, and promoting diversity and inclusion, BCHU can ensure that it has the right people in the right roles to drive performance and achieve its goals.

Strategic Pillar 2: Establish and Strengthen Partnerships

Establishing and strengthening partnerships is fundamental to our mission of promoting and protecting the health of our communities.

By working closely with these partners, we can leverage their expertise, resources, and networks to enhance our programs and services, address community health needs more effectively, and advocate for policies that improve public health outcomes. Additionally, this pillar emphasizes the
importance of fostering trust in our partnerships, as well as continuously evaluating and adapting our collaborative efforts to ensure they align with our strategic goals and the evolving needs of our communities.

Strategic Pillar 3: Maximize Access to Quality Programs and Services

Maximizing access to quality programs and services is central to our commitment to improving the health and well-being of the community we serve.

We strive to achieve this by continuously evaluating the needs of our community, identifying areas where access to programs and services may be limited, and developing innovative strategies to bridge these gaps. By leveraging technology, community outreach, and strategic partnerships, we aim to make our programs and services more accessible, efficient, and responsive to the evolving needs of our communities.

Strategic Pillar 4: Communication

Effective communication is essential to our ability to engage with the community, share information, and foster trust both internally and externally. This pillar focuses on developing clear and timely communication strategies that reach diverse audiences across the community and within the organization. We are committed to actively listening to the needs and concerns of the community and the organization to continually improve our communication efforts.

Communication is most effective when it is a two-way dialogue; this pillar will enable us to gather important information from our stakeholders to assist with making effective program decisions about our services.
