Incoming Society of Chief Personnel Officers president Keith Handley said he will focus on the work/life balance during his term office.
He said: 'We are surrounded by evidence that our professional lives and home lives are out of balance. As personnel officers we are busy dealing with the fallout of all of this - stress, ill-health, early retirement and so on.
'This is why we have chosen work/life balance as the theme of this year's annual seminar and why it will be a dominant issue on my agenda for the coming year.'
He will build on the work done to increase SOCPO's influence with government, and praised work done so far: 'We sit down with ministers now to plan policy and they are really listening to what we have to say.'
Other priorities include ageism and racism. He also welcomed the society's decision to extend membership to all personnel officers in local government, which he called a 'crossroads in the history of the society'.
