Human Resources: A Covenantal Relationship

By Marc Kramer

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, November 2012

How do human resource policies illustrate the values of a nonprofit organization? Kramer explains the "family-first" policy of RAVSAK, an agency of 120 independent Jewish day schools across North America. Jewish tradition informs this policy by emphasizing the sacred status of the family. Examples from the "covenantal" employees' handbook are included. Kramer concludes that, although the system can be improved, the "family-first" policy results in harder-working, happier employees who know they are appreciated.
