Day 54: Staff Well-being

Weekly Executive Committee meeting this morning, followed by our monthly staff meeting.  One of the benefits of working in a smaller organisation (64 staff) is that the logistics of having a regular meeting with all staff is less challenging than in bigger organisations.  Inevitably all staff members can't always attend, but it is a good opportunity to get as many as possible together to interact, to share information and discuss issues.

The well-being of our staff is really important and there have been a couple of recent incidents witnessed by staff near to our office building that have caused us to review security arrangements.  We have agreed a ‘closing time’ for the building to reduce the risk of staff leaving too late at night along with other measures.

Next month we will devote time in our staff meeting to working on our vision and values.
