Civility & Respect podcasts – Appraisals

7 December 2022

The Civility and Respect Project team have worked in partnership with Chris Moses, Managing Director of Personnel Advice and Solutions Ltd, to deliver a series of podcasts explaining councils responsibilities as employers. Podcast number 3 and 4 (from a series of 7) have now been released, with 4 in total produced so far.

One of the key areas which challenges relationships between councillors and clerks is the council’s responsibility as employer for the clerk.  Councils which support and value their staff are better able to deliver their objectives and adapt to changing needs or priorities.

In the fifth podcast Chris Moses, covers some of the key considerations for councils in relation to appraisals:

  • The purpose of appraisals
  • Picking the right appraisal form for your council
  • How to prepare for the appraisal
  • Asking the right questions, in the right place and the right time
  • Action plans following appraisals
  • Confidentiality

This is an introduction to the subject.  More information and training may be available from your county association and sometimes it is necessary to seek additional advice from a HR service provider with specialist local council knowledge.
