Over the past 18 months 6 focus workshops have taken place at Ivory's Rock, with the aim of improving the experience for volunteers and staff.
54 of a possible 113 volunteers and staff attended the workshops, culminating in a Statement of Values Day on 4th November. A list of Values gathered from all the workshops was discussed and then voted on.
The Values chosen are:
These have since been ratified by the IRF Board, and are now incorporated as the Values for Ivory’s Rock.
Rather than have Values and guiding principles handed down from management, the consultation with volunteers and staff has resulted in a list of Values we can all own and live by.
The next step in 2021 is to consider Values in Action….What do they look like in practice?
Again this will be a collaborative process.
