HR Policy Handbook

This report presents the newly drafted HR Policy Handbook. Designed as a joint Handbook for Breckland and South Holland District Council, it compiles the key HR policies required as best practice for both Councils. Its aim is to mitigate risk, particularly in a shared management arrangement and application of policy across two Councils, to reduce review periods and updates following changes to employment legislation.
