Interactive HR List Version 1.28 (Nov 17) - now password protected
HR services are continually looking for ways to develop SLN further to assist our customer schools. As part of our HR service schools have access to a range of model policies, in order to protect these documents the HR Interactive List will be password protected from 3 February 2017. If you are a customer school please contact Hollie Kane on firstname.lastname@example.org to request the password.
Please find attached the latest update of 'Interactive List of all HR documents' (including Payroll).
By clicking on any of the document names you are taken directly to that document whether you are in SLN or not! Please ensure you are always using the most up to date list as we will be publishing revised versions on SLN every term to ensure that the list is always complete and up to date.
If you have any questions on any of the HR documents then please contact Liz Farrell email@example.com. If you need any support on using SLN or the interactive list then please contact the Services for Schools team on firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to receiving your feedback on your experiences of using the interactive list.
