The main topic of discussion at the Board Away Day was people and the GWR. We particularly had in mind the pressures arising from our continuing success and the forward requirements in connection with operations to Broadway.
A major decision arising is the creation of a new Plc Director post to lead in all aspects of policy, recruitment, placing, training, personal development, promotion, job satisfaction, legal compliance and communication with GWR People (that is volunteers - all of us)
With people being our most important asset the Board thought this an overdue development
A role description will be developed and a formal advert issued in due course
Meantime if you fancy the task please do talk to me. Keep in mind that being a director carries important responsibilities, is time consuming and a director is expected to contribute to the whole arena of management and strategy development as well as duties assigned
