Rewarding and Developing Staff in Higher Education: Good Practice in Setting HR Strategies. Report.
Higher Education Funding Council for England, Bristol.
This guide aims to help universities and colleges in England think strategically about the contribution of human resources to their organization and then to turn this thinking into an agreed strategy document to manage their human resources (HR) effectively. In November 2000, the British government announced an additional 330 million pounds over 3 years to improve the management of human resources in higher education. The Higher Education Funding Council for England has distributed this money as conditional grants to institutions that have identified their overall aims and described how the money will be spent. Part 1 of this guide looks at the development of effective HR strategies, including processes, priorities, resource allocation, and target setting. Part 2 focuses on the six priority areas identified in an earlier document (HEFCE 01/16): (1) recruitment and retention; (2) staff training and development; (3) equal opportunities; (4) regular reviews of staffing needs; (5) annual performance reviews for all staff; and (6) action to tackle poor performance. Attachments (annexes) discuss specific areas that HR strategies would cover and present a self-evaluation questionnaire. (SLD)
