Revitalising and Improving Employee Relations Through Effective Appraisals.

Course Description

Town and Parish Councils know that it would be good practice to conduct appraisals, as well as giving them a golden opportunity to develop effective communication links with the workforce. 

However many struggle to overcome hurdles, such as Employee reluctance, finding the time and knowing how to do it confidently.

We would recommend that as a minimum, a representative from the council as the employer attends (i.e. a councillor).

This is an interactive course  and offers the opportunity to network with Councillors from Councils across Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Rutland to share best practice and ideas.

 This 90-minute presentation helps Clerks and Councilors overcome these concerns, as well as;

1. Helps the Council to understand the purpose of Appraisals and their benefit to the Council.

2. Address Employee concerns and reluctance.

3. Plan effectively to ensure they conduct a professional and effective Appraisals.

4. Design an Appraisal Form that is right for their Council.

5. Produce effective and workable action plans.

6. Address issues within the Council regarding the role of Appraisals in Managing Performance.

7. Ensure Appraisals are conducted in a confidential manner an comply with GDPR obligations.

Who Should Attend
The course is for both clerks and councillors.
