More Efficient Management Structure Implemented for Newfoundland and Labrador Housing Corporation

The Newfoundland and Labrador Housing Corporation (NLHC), today announced a new and more efficient management structure for the organization.

The The new structure will see the elimination of 14 of the 76 management positions at NLHC (an 18 per cent reduction), resulting in $1.4 million in annual savings. Options to streamline the organization were very carefully considered with client service and effective management being the primary focus. There will be no impacts to front line services.

Quotes
“In The Way Forward, government committed to renewing government operations and having a more efficient public sector is one of the policy actions to support that vision. It is important to note that the positions being eliminated are management, not front-line or client contact personnel, which means there will be no negative impact on clients.”
Honourable Lisa Dempster
Minister Responsible for Newfoundland and Labrador Housing Corporation

“Today’s corporate restructuring is one more indication of government’s commitment to enhance efficiencies without impacting effectiveness. The Newfoundland and Labrador Housing Corporation’s renewed structure enables us to reduce annual operating costs while continuing to deliver our programs and services to the people of the province who need our help the most.”
