Hootsworth’s Questions & Answers

Do you recommend having Board members take this training? If a Board member has a complaint against them by a staff person, does HR handle that like any other complaint against a manager?


Board members should absolutely take this training and if there's a complaint against a Board member, then the organization is best served by hiring an independent, third-party investigator who is in a better position to investigate a Board member.

The challenge of leaving that project to a member of the HR team is the lack of power of HR vs. the Board member.

Hope that helps
