HR for Churches

Can a church benefit from HR support?

Church leaders have to wear many hats. Not only are they required to provide spiritual leadership for their congregation but increasingly they have to act as a CEO of a small charity. One of the key responsibilities that comes with being a charitable organisations is that all churches are required to ensure that they are well governed. That’s why we launched our HR for Churches offering.  

Church revenue needs to be well spent and personal data needs to be well protected. Getting value for your revenue spend can sometimes require buying in specialist expertise that will help you to become efficient and effective, saving you time to focus on what’s important. So if you are wondering why a church would need HR support it’s worth considering whether you would know what to do in the following circumstances:

  • You have an employee with a performance or absence issue.
  • You need to recruit a new team member.
  • You have promoted a team member and they are struggling to motivate their team.
  • You have an employee who is pregnant and they are asking what they are entitled to.
