Effective managerial practices promote a safe, respectful, and supportive workplace culture, which contributes to employee retention and engagement, sound risk management, and efficient municipal services.
Selectboards, town managers and administrators, department heads, and supervisors should promote a healthy and productive workplace through
- meaningful communication and performance feedback,
- encouraging employees to learn and grow, and
- good personnel policies and practices that support a culture of respect and safety.
