The process was suitable, details the legal duties which is useful. It was felt to be a successful appraisal process. It would be useful for all councillors to see a blank form to see the detail. The Chairman of full council invited the Chairman of each committee to complete the form informally in this exceptional year.
Cllr Mrs B Walters thanked everyone involved with the HR Committee, the work covered over the last few months has been tremendous. Everyone has brought their own knowledge to help produce the many policies that have been implemented.
Thank you to all members of staff who have worked very hard with the constant changes in working patterns required during the Covid-19 situation, especially the Clerk for all the hard work required for the policies.
