Record of the Decision

Members noted that the revised People Strategy would support and help deliver the Council's priorities and vision for the Borough. It had been developed in consultation with partners, managers, staff and trade unions. Since the last People Strategy, developed in 2007, there had been enormous changes in the environment in which the Council operated and these changes would continue to grow with the additional pressure of future public spending cuts. Over the last 3 years Human Resources had moved from a largely reactive service to a position where people strategies were placed at the heart of corporate planning and policy development. In doing so significant changes havdbeen delivered. However, the next 3 years would create even greater challenges and working with partners, managers, staff and trade unions, 5 strategic people management priorities had been developed designed to support the Council:-

Strategic Priority 1: Developing the Organisation - to develop new ways of working and achieve value for money.


Strategic Priority 2: Achieving Excellence in Leadership and Management

Strategic Priority 3: Developing the Workforce

Strategic priority 4: Recruiting and Retaining a Diverse and Talented Workforce


Strategic Priority 5: Working Together

Each priority has been developed into a series of high level actions which were set out in an Action Plan. A copy of the Action Plan was provided to Members.
