Steering Group Governance
The principles for the Nomination/Appointment process for selection for the Steering Committee are:
- The Steering Committee should reflect the composition of the wider EFS community.
- It should be transparent and accountable to the wider community.
- No-one should be excluded from the Steering Committee Nomination/Appointment process.
- The overriding criterion for selection will be the contribution a member can make to the work of the Steering Group. Service on the Steering Group is a vitally important role in the development of the subject of Employee Engagement; it is therefore essential that only quality candidates who can add value and work as part of a team are selected.
- Evidence of an individual’s commitment to Employee Engagement will be necessary.
- Steering Committee members must be able to attend meetings in person or by telephone.
- Any potential and/or perceived conflicts of interest must be highlighted as they become known.
