Over the past year our organization has transitioned from a traditional CEO/top down model to a distributed leadership model. In light of this and other changes, we are in the process of revising out employee handbook and employee policies.
We would prefer someone with knowledge of the intricacies of Maine workplace regulations, but that is not required.
This project is crucial to the operation of our organization in general. We provide a variety of educational services to our community and want to treat each other with fairness and respect as staff members. Our transition to being a staff-led organization is a tricky one with many pitfalls, and clear and fair HR policies are crucial for its success. We hope to create a model for other small organizations to practice leadership that is both democratic and effective.
