Being a good Employer

This guide produced for NALC outlines many elements associated with being a good employer, and aims to help town and parish councils to develop their role as a good employer.

'being a good employer makes your employees feel more valued and more effective in their work. This results in the improved delivery of council services for the citizens of your communities. As with "The good councillor's guide", councillors are provided with comprehensive and straightforward guidance to key employment areas. Each section contains easily digestible advice and information that will benefit the council and its employees.'
