Workforce Strategy

Our Workforce Strategy 2015-2020 reflects the scale and pace of change being experienced in the Council and is intended to achieve:

  • A strong, ambitious, responsible and resilient leadership culture which enables us to lead and manage change proactively and at pace.
  • An engaged and empowered workforce, equipped with skills and knowledge to deliver the best possible outcomes for our customers and confident in the responsibilities they have.
  • An ability to work at pace through in-depth understanding of demand and acceptance that resources need to be targeted sensitively. As a consequence of this we need a pay and reward strategy which is fit for purpose and future proofed.
  • A modern and flexible way of working, using business acumen to maximise the potential of ICT.

A workforce which recognises the diversity of the community we serve and maximises all our assets.
