City considers Standards of Behavior
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – The City of Marshfield is considering a set of “Core Values and Standards of Behavior” for all city employees.
That’s according to Human Resources Director Jen Rachu who says the standards fall under several main categories. “Ultimately the foundation for any type of performance management system is to have a list of core values and standards of behavior associated with that. It looks at professionalism, integrity, customer service, respect, teamwork, accountability,” she said.
Rachu says there’s no current concern or issue with employee behavior, and that the proposed standards are just a part of a larger performance management system she wants to implement.
“Over the next several years what I’d like to do is start to revamp our performance management program, and that really consists of a number of things,” Rachu said, “new employee evaluations at regularly scheduled increments, development plans, changed performance reviews, looking at corrective action.”
Those behavioral standards go to the Finance, Personnel Committee for their consideration in early July, and then on to the common council for their possible final approval on July 9.
