Third Sector Podcast: Maintaining healthy workforce relations

Third Sector Podcast: Maintaining healthy workforce relations

Acting editor Andy Ricketts and senior multimedia reporter Lucinda Rouse are joined by Antonia Bance, head of campaigns, communications and digital at the Trades Union Congress, and Idris Arshad, people and inclusion partner at St Christopher’s Hospice.

In the wake of a recent strike announcement by more than 500 staff at Shelter, they discuss how organizations can prevent employee relations from deteriorating to the point of industrial action being called.

Idris provides guidance on maintaining open and honest communications channels between management and staff, which is particularly important during periods of financial difficulty, while Antonia notes the increase in online inquiries from third sector professionals seeking information about joining unions. She outlines the benefits of joining a union and provides information on the unions covering the third sector.

This week’s Good News Bulletin covers the growing trend of festive charity tractor runs.
