People are the most important assets of any organisation. Being a good employer is about getting the basics right and about creating an environment where staff are able to successfully do their work because they have the resources and support they need.
Volunteers are also part of the team in most Neighbourhood Support organisations and it is important to have policies and procedures in place for good volunteer management. You can find advice and resources for involving and managing volunteers at Volunteering NZ.
Being a good employer is also about good communication and good relationships. This includes treating people fairly, doing things for a good reason and demonstrating good faith. Sometimes problems arise, and if they do there is good advice on how to resolve them on through Employment NZ.
