Staff Communication

Staff communication is vital for us to be able to work successfully and deliver our Corporate Plan. We engage and consult with our communities on a regular basis and we do the same with our staff. Take a look at some of the ways in which we communicate.

Staff Council

The purpose of the Staff Council is to provide an effective communication link between staff and the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) of the council.

Staff Survey

Every 2 years a staff survey is conducted to gain a valuable insight about what you think about the Council as an employer, your role within the organisation and your thoughts on issues such as communication, training and personal development.

A copy of the Staff Survey can be accessed via LINC. If you do not have access to LINC, please ask your line manager for a copy of the survey.

LINC

A dedicated intranet site for all staff to access which will have all the information that you may need as an employee. It will also direct you to other relevant sites.

Other communications

There are other ways in which we communicate with our staff, and these may be through emails, meetings, newsletters, staff away days and conferences.
