Our Workforce Strategy sets out the aims and objectives for reshaping and developing our workforce through to 2020.
Following on from the 2014 Workforce Strategy, we recognise that making better use of the talent we have within our organisation is a priority if we are to maintain and improve our services. The implementation of this Workforce Strategy will help us to achieve our priorities and enable us to engage and develop the talent and skills of our employees.
The strategy was approved by Policy and Resources Committee in April 2015.
We want to ensure that we have the right people in the right place with the right skills to deliver improved services, create greater efficiencies and flexibility, and improve customer service.
Four workforce themes have been identified for developing our workforce:
- Planning effectively for our Council's future workforce needs
- Improving Employee Engagement
- Helping our employees to succeed
- Ensuring equality for all
Each theme consists of various activities aimed at staff and managers which will develop skills and knowledge.
Performance measures are used to demonstrate progress.
