A Children's Services Human. Resource Management is based on the policies and procedures that define the staffing requirements for the effective operation of the children's service. The total process of staffing, from advertisement to employment, is based upon the specific criteria that is determined for the particular position required. Thus, the entire process is designed to provide the children's service with the best information necessary to select the most appropriate person for each staff position in the team.
Consequently, well defined inclusive personnel policies and procedures enable each member of staff to understand the duties, skills, knowledge and responsibilities of their position within the team and their interactions within the structure of the service. This humanistic perspective, which has a focus upon interpersonal relationships, and the ecological perspective, which has a focus upon interaction and relationships between all levels of structure, are the perspectives from which this manual was derived.
