HR is part of the programme and is included in the response plan. The HR plan should be developed based on prior analysis included in the HR section of the country level preparedness plan.
Staff should be deployed or recruited to meet all requirements of the programme to enable an effective response – national EFAST and volunteers should be included as part of the structure (see Section 2)
As a signatory to People in Aid, ActionAid will utilise the principles and guidelines outlined by People in Aid, specifically regarding fast-track recruitment, rest and recuperation, psychosocial support for staff and on-the-job coaching.
ActionAid has worked with a group of different INGOs to develop a Humanitarian Core Competencies Framework which describes the important competencies and behaviours required by humanitarian workers.
