The Civility and Respect Project releases two new HR podcasts
The Civility and Respect Project has released two new HR podcasts to better explain local (parish and town) councils' responsibilities as employers.
The third podcast in the series covers the considerations for councils about handling grievances. The fourth podcast covers handling disciplinary situations.
One critical area that challenges relationships between councillors and clerks is the local council's responsibility as an employer for the clerk. Councils that support and value their staff can better deliver their objectives and adapt to changing needs or priorities. Whether the council employs a single member of staff for a few hours a week, or a large and varied team of individuals, good employment practice from recruitment to support and development is key to achieving the best outcomes for your communities.
The Civility and Respect Project team has worked with Chris Moses, managing director of Personnel Advice and Solutions Ltd, to deliver a series of podcasts.
