Personnel Committee

Personnel Committee members include Liz Joffe, Hank Kaplan, and Katherine McDowell.

The committee's purpose is to advise the Steering Committee on personnel related issues (such as hiring, benefits and staff evaluations), by recommending employment practices that reflect the congregational values of inclusivity, equity, and fairness.  The committee reviews, revises, and develops employment policies. The committee assists Steering in keeping the employee handbook current by developing and providing recommendations for Steering to consider and adopt.   

In the context of employee evaluations, the committee provides advice on questions and procedures to inform the evaluation process, but it does not lead or participate in employee evaluations, which are conducted by the employee supervisors.  

The committee does not have managerial or supervisory responsibilities, or serve as an HR department that directly fields employee questions, processes leave requests, or handles disciplinary matters.
