Our Employee Promise
We empower our staff to be innovative and collaborative to build strong communities. We have an outstanding workforce with a can-do attitude - supported through clear career paths, talent management and learning and development.
Our staff are innovative, open to challenge, act on feedback and learn quickly from mistakes and they work together to turn the vision into reality. They embrace a Behaviours Framework and look for more effective and joined up ways of meeting residents’ needs. Information technology (IT) supports our staff and customers by ensuring suitable products, infrastructure, security and support is in place together with clear, simple policies and procedures.
Our staff are engaged and are supported to develop new initiatives to improve their engagement and ensure our positive culture is maintained and continues to improve.
We know that our staff are our best ambassadors and can promote us as an employer of choice. You can see our staff being brand ambassadors in videos on our Careers YouTube channel where these videos are used to support recruitment campaigns to signpost candidates to our careers website via Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook, and we also use them internally to amplify organisational culture through social media, our intranet and digital campaigns.
A new People Strategy will help us to plan for new requirements such as the apprenticeship levy and to ensure our workforce is fit for the future.
