Leicestershire named top council for productivity

The council has been ranked number one by consultants iMPOWER

We've been named the number one council for productivity in a national league table.

Published yesterday, the ranking of 150 councils has been compiled by national consultancy firm, iMPOWER.  

They looked at whether councils are getting value for money across a range of areas including overall performance, adult social care and children’s services such as fostering placements.

The index also scored each council for the work they do with NHS services – like getting people home from hospital.


I’m very proud to see that our hard work is recognised in this national league table.    

As the lowest funded county council it’s vital that we make the most of every pound we spend. Driving up productivity and reducing wasted effort is one of our top priorities. Just yesterday, we agreed a new strategic plan focusing on outcomes, underlining the commitment of our members and staff.

But the challenge gets harder each year, as demand on our services grow and we face even tougher decisions.
