    There is a significant difference between being an employee of The Salvation Army and being an officer. Many employees are just that, employees. They have no attachment to The Army beyond the day to day job and the paycheck; many are not even Christians. Of course this is not true of all employees as many are faithful Christians and Salvationists. Officers have an entirely different relationship and calling. The very existence of our appointment system requires an entirely different personnel stream than that of employees. As an officer I would not want to be treated like an employee (I think employees should be treated very well) but like an officer, one who is available to be sent wherever I am needed at any time, as one who carries a particular spiritual responsibility within the organization that employees do not necessarily have. to this end, I think it is necessary to have a secretary for personnel (who does not really deal with employees) to give oversight to the officer personnel.

    Don't misunderstand me, Keith. I do agree with you, however, I sometimes believe that the Army 'hides' behind the term officership as a way of treating or dealing with them outside the realms of the employment standards act, and, sometimes in doing so using the calling as an excuse or reason for doing so.

    Christa, my point is that HR professionals are highly skilled to handle any type of individual and situation. Everyone who ministers through The Salvation Army is special and those who are ordained should be in the role of pastors not administrators.

    Interesting thought Keith, however, the only need for a Secretary for Personnel would be because officers aren't employees and, therefore, the need for 'special' policies and procedures....even though we all know that officers share in the same deductions as employees, are issued the same type of T4s, qualify for Unemployment Insurance when their officership is concluded, etc.

    Not sure why a Secretary for Personnel is required, when there is already in place a Territorial Director of Employee Relations and a National Director of Human Resources who both appear on the recent Ontario sunshine list. There appearance on this list of those who earn over $100,000 per year would indicate they are well educated professionals in the human resources field. Seems to be some redundancy.
