In planning for our future the Council needs to be both stable (resilient, reliable, and efficient) and dynamic (fast, nimble, and adaptive), designing structures, governance arrangements, and processes with a strong backbone, whilst at the same time creating looser, more dynamic elements that can be adapted quickly to new challenges and opportunities.
Flexibility, choice and trust are highly desirable features of the future workplace for our employees. These characteristics are consistent with a long history of psychology research,
Our People Strategy responds to these characteristics, taking into account: values, culture and leadership; workforce planning and organisational development; employment relations; and people analytics and reporting. This information, being brought together, will provide effective workforce business intelligence for our organisation.
