Fiona - Corporate Resources and Vice-chair, LGBT+ staff network

I was part of a staff focus group that discussed the council’s values. We all worked in different service areas, but came up with similar words to describe what drives us. Our values are positivity, trust, respect, flexibility, openness and transparency.

Rabinder - Children and Family Services and Chair of the Black Workers Group

In my role I oversee the important work the council does to represent BME workers, ensure equality and that their voices are heard when it comes to policy. My manager supports my involvement and we both see the benefits to my own development.

Gordon McFarlane, Assistant Director, Corporate Resources​

We ask all of our employees to complete a staff survey every two years. The 2019 survey showed us that over 90% of staff feel valued for the work they do, and 92% feel trusted to carry out their job effectively. We’re really proud of our survey results.
