People Scrutiny Review - Staff Retention and Succession Planning

To consider a presentation by the Director of People & Organisational Development concerning the following:


“How does MFRA ensure current and future retention of staff and effective succession planning to avoid other employers recruiting the excellent staff from MFRA?”


Further questions to be covered within the presentation, as requested by Members, are:


1.    How does MFRA currently go about staff retention and succession planning?


2.    What are the trends in staff being recruited by other organisations – how many, over what timescale, costs of training lost?


3.    Do we have any evidence of difficulties in recruiting any particular groups of staff and do we know why?


4.    What can we offer MFRA staff to ensure retention of good staff and effective succession planning?


5.    Can we have a breakdown of retention rates and promotion of all those in underrepresented groups in MFRA?


6.    Is there any information from FRA’s of a similar size in terms of how we compare on these issues?
