Oshawa Public Libraries is an innovative, forward-thinking group of four branches serving a population of over 150,000 residents. The administrative office supports 140 employees with various employment statuses. Challenges exist with timely and accurate record keeping and reporting. The Director of Support Services, Wayne Johnson, knew they had to do something.

“HR Systems Strategies with info:HR provided us with a cost-effective solution where the system could be molded to fit our requirements and HR reporting needs.”

Prior to implementing info:HR, Oshawa Public Libraries was using spreadsheets and paper files to manage their employee information. “The Library required a more timely and accurate way to report information,” Wayne said. “In this day and age we need a system that allows us to have the information at our fingertips.”

”We are thrilled to add Oshawa Public Libraries to the growing community of HRSS clients,” stated Andy Staniewski, President of HR Systems Strategies Inc.   “We are a great fit for an organization that is enthusiastic to implement automation within their HR processes.  And as a library supporting multiple locations and a large population, we will always be there to support their needs.”

Oshawa Public Libraries This year marks 150 years of service to the City of Oshawa by the Oshawa Public Libraries. The Library provides a number of services from electronic borrowing to children’s programs to the City through four branches.  Every year, almost 700,000 visits occur at their branches across the City and over two million items are borrowed.
