The report was introduced by Kate Sullivan - Lead Commissioner – Culture, Leadership and Performance and Bal Jacob - HROD Strategy and Commissioning Manager.


The annual review of the Our People Strategy was first launched in 2020 and reviews what the council has achieved and proposals for the following year.  The report highlights the activity for the last 12 months against agreed priorities.


The 17 key priorities for 2023/2024 can be found at point 1.5 of the report.  Point 1.6 of the report lists the measures of success and performance against the key business measures.


The committee noted that the report will be presented to the Staff and Pensions Committee on the 6th of March following this committee’s thoughts and comments.


The Chair stated that there is nothing more important than the people at the council and that members would be nothing without them.  The Chair thanked the officers for the report. 


Following a question from Councillor Sarah Boad in relation to the collection of statistics that could be used to inform the development of the strategy,  Kate Sullivan confirmed that, for the most part, people are willing to share information that could help.  The information that is collected includes social economical information.  It was confirmed that this information would be attached to someone’s HR record but would always be anonymous when it is used for performance information or in the development of a strategy.




The Committee notes the activity as set out in the 2022/23 Annual Review of Our People Strategy and considers and comments upon the proposed delivery priorities to inform the development of the Our People

Strategy Delivery Plan for 2023/24
