Isn't it amazing what can be achieved by a small number of committed and informed people?!
We had a great dialogue around the issues we need to address for the future - so great that we have arranged a further session to finish off the work.
HR advisor impressed with our inclusive approach - "I usually have difficulty persuading schools to do an HR Strategy and those that do agree just ask me to go away and write it". Well, that's not the way we work - this cross-functional team stuff seems to be taking off in one or two other areas as well.
