3 1 Overview 1.1 F o r e w o r d Every day, West Lothian Council provides a diverse range of essential services to over 170,000 people both within and outwith West Lothian. The quality and effectiveness of these services rely on the commitment, dedication and ability of each and every one of our employees, who on a daily basis make a difference to the lives of our customers. In common with many other organisations, the council faces particularly difficult challenges in maintaining and improving the quality and effectiveness of service outcomes whilst achieving ever tighter efficiency targets. The People Strategy acknowledges the critical role that a motivated, skilled and capable workforce plays in every aspect of service delivery and continuous improvement and sets out a plan for the key activities and actions over the next five years which will support and drive the development and effective leadership of our employees. Recognising and acting upon the need to change and adapt has long been a feature of the council s approach to leadership and forward planning. The People Strategy has been developed in conjunction with the Customer Strategy and the Improvement Strategy and as such is a key enabler for the successful delivery of the council s Corporate Plan. The outcomes contained within the Strategy are aimed at ensuring that the council remains a customer focused and high performing organisation. The recognition of the value and benefits that come from having a fully skilled, engaged and motivated workforce remains the key to our continuing success as a leading council. John McGinty Leader of the Council Graham Hope Chief Executive 2 P a g e

4 1.2 C o n t e x t The People Strategy is designed to support the council s key aim of improving the quality and value of the services it provides to the people of West Lothian. At the core of the People Strategy is the recognition that the continuing ability of the council to achieve this aim depends ultimately on the skills and commitment of our employees. It is essential therefore that the council has a clear vision supported by a strategy and plan for the systematic support and development of our employees at all levels. The council s reputation and ability to deliver services to the highest quality and standards is built on strong leadership and the abilities and goodwill of our employees. This is visible in the significant contribution that they make every day to our local communities and in their willingness to adapt, improve and innovate. The outcomes and related activities identified in the People Strategy represent the key areas in which supporting policies, practices and actions will be developed and implemented as part of an integrated approach with other corporate strategies. Development activities and opportunities will be designed to ensure that programmes meet the development needs of individuals and the council as a whole. The council s approach to leadership development recognises the importance of building capacity at all levels in the workforce and the key role that leaders and managers have in facilitating effective employee engagement and communication. Listening to the views of employees and acting appropriately on feedback from surveys and other consultation processes will ensure that the People Strategy outcomes and actions remain meaningful and relevant. 1.3 S t r a t e g y D e v e l o p m e n t The People Strategy has been designed to deliver the priorities identified in the council's Corporate Plan, taking account of the views expressed by the community, partners and stakeholders as part of the Delivering Better Outcomes consultation. The priorities and associated activities are key to ensuring that the council s overall aim of continuing to deliver excellent public services is achieved. The council has embraced the principles of continuous improvement and is committed to best practice and new and improved ways of working. This is reflected throughout the People Strategy in terms of the effective management, development and engagement of our employees. 3 P a g e

5 Our strategy to nurture customer and outcome focused employees is validated through our corporate performance monitoring processes and through external assessment, such as the council s corporate accreditation in Investors in People and the Customer Excellence standard. The People Strategy supports and is aligned to other corporate strategies, plans and improvement activities, including the Improvement and Customer strategies, management plans and the programme of West Lothian Assessment Model (WLAM) reviews. This will promote a consistent and integrated approach and ensure the council s key strategies and plans are unified around a single set of priorities and outcomes. The Strategy has been developed in conjunction with key stakeholders including Depute Chief Executives, Managers, Heads of, Managers, employees and Trade Unions and is aligned with the council s Corporate Plan ( ) and other supporting strategies. 1.4 O w n e r s h i p a n d S c o p e o f t h e S t r a t e g y Achieving the challenging outcomes contained within the People Strategy requires clear commitment and strong leadership from the council and the full involvement and commitment of all council employees. The council s role is to nurture and promote a positive and inclusive culture and to create a framework that encourages effective engagement, open communication and good performance. Employees are equally responsible for managing their own performance and development and communicating any issues that may prevent them from achieving their potential. The People Strategy outcomes will be progressed and monitored by the HR Programme Board and will be integrated into service management plans, supported by appropriate action/project plans. The HR Programme Board will conduct scheduled reviews to ensure that the council remains on track to deliver the outcomes and that these continue to be relevant to the council and the achievement of corporate priorities. Critically, through the annual employee survey results, the HR Programme Board will assess whether the strategy continues to be relevant to the 4 P a g e

6 needs of employees and of the council and will consider what changes may be necessary. The effective delivery of the People Strategy outcomes requires the commitment and buy-in of all the relevant stakeholders. Specific responsibilities are listed below. Employees are responsible for engaging with agreed processes for delivering the People Strategy outcomes and complying with the requirements of these processes. They are also responsible for taking personal ownership of their own performance, development and improvement as necessary, and engaging positively with their managers and fellow employees in all aspects of work-related issues. Employees must also exercise a duty of care in respect of health and safety arrangements, highlighting any concerns to their managers. It is the responsibility of all council employees to ensure that they contribute to establishing a workplace that embraces diversity where all are treated equally, and with respect and dignity. Trade Unions will be consulted in the development of policies, procedures and processes to deliver People Strategy outcomes. Heads of are responsible for ensuring that agreed actions and outcomes are effectively integrated into service plans and activities. This includes ensuring the implementation of effective employee engagement, listening to employees, motivation and development, performance management, health and safety, equality and diversity measures and workforce planning. Managers are responsible for the operational implementation of agreed actions contained in service plans and activities as approved by the Head of. This includes the engagement, motivation and development of employees through effective management and performance review, the monitoring and delivery of agreed equality and diversity outcomes, the management and improvement of health and safety arrangements and workforce planning to ensure the efficient use of resources. 5 P a g e
