Restructuring in schools; minimising the effects on your workforce
Merlyn Vlotman, HR consultant, Strictly EducationRe-structuring is a regular and ongoing process for schools and increasingly an area that SBMs lead in. How this is managed can be a significant positive, or indeed negative, to the team’s morale.
In this session, Merlyn will look at the effects of restructuring in schools, on the workforce and staff wellbeing. She will also explore how human resources are integral to managing change.
Take home points:
Merlyn will focus on:
- setting the right tone early to foster positive behaviours;
- the power of communication;
- understanding the process that leads to better management.
SBMs who are, or potentially will be, a key member of a team delivering a process of restructure in their school and are concerned about their staff’s wellbeing during a period of change.
