Someone representing employees on the board... now there’s a novelty
The Mail reports that the UK government is expected to recommend that companies should be 'nudged' into naming a non-executive director and board member to be responsible for employees and diversity. It is also thought that firms could be encouraged to volunteer to appoint a non-executive to be in charge of corporate social responsibility issues. It is understood that ministers want to issue a consultation document on the proposals before the Conservative party conference in a fortnight. The Mail also suggests that the proposals may be seen as a climbdown from earlier recommendations that companies would be forced to have worker representatives on their boards.
Reacting to this – Geoff asks why it is not the HR Director representing employees at board level? That said a non executive aligned to the HRD would be better than none at all.
