Sharing some HR gems!

Spoke today at the Shaping the Future of HR conference, which was the first All Ireland Local Government HR seminar. I spoke on the subject of delivering HR in a shared services environment in a joint session with Phil Badley who is the President of the Public Sector People Managers Association (PPMA).

Structuring local neighbourhoods

Met with colleagues today from INLOGOV who are working on a research study for APSE into 'Governance, Neighbourhoods and Service Delivery'. This research is part of our ongoing tripartite partnership between both organisations and the Centre for Local Economic Strategies (CLES). The first publication 'Towards a Future for Public Employment' has already been issued and the other part in the research partnerships trilogy of reports 'The Economic Footprint of the Public Sector' is also underway running in parallel.
