The Sydney Morning Herald tomorrow reports that staff at the New South Wales Law Reform Commission are being invited to apply for their own positions. Apparently, the current staff there are staying in their posts too long, thereby reducing staff turnover, with the serious consequence that:
Zero turnover means that no opportunities arise to attract, develop or retain highly skilled employees.”
It’s always the damn employees who cause trouble for the proper functioning of the Human Resources Department. How can HR possibly execute policies to retain valuable staff if nobody ever threatens to leave!?
