Information about how to develop your workforce, manage performance and strengthen governance.
Assessing the environmental impact of your building and operations can not only help you meet organisational commitments to sustainability, but can also reduce running costs and increase efficiency.
Private archives embrace the archives of non-public organisations including businesses, charities, religious bodies and private individuals.
The Archives and Records Association (ARA) has a strategic priority by 2013 to promote the 21st century archive workforce, based on equality and diversity.
In this managing and governing section, we provide you with resources related to organisational health.
Managing performance helps to develop services that are better and more sustainable, and ensures resources are used efficiently and effectively.
Archive services of all types and sizes need to consider issues of equality and diversity.
On this page, we provide guidance for local authorities and their staff to make decisions so that their archives and records are sustainably managed.
A forward plan is a powerful tool for service improvement and is a key requirement for Archive Service Accreditation.
Much of our work with the archives sector is concerned with partnership.
Planning and delivering a new archive building or store or refurbishing an existing building can be a significant challenge.
