Managing Your People

You can’t run an organisation without people. But as soon as you employ people, be they paid employees or volunteers, you are legally obligated to ensure that they are working in a safe and fair environment and that all relevant employment laws are abided by.

You may need to have policies, procedures and contracts in place to cover paid employees and similar for volunteers. If working with vulnerable sections of the community, you may need safeguarding policies and processes.

Even a volunteering helping out in a soup kitchen will need to have gone through the relevant food hygiene training. And what other training might be needed?

This section takes a look at these areas and will help you establish what is needed for your organisation.
