11 ORGANISATION DEVELOPMENT We focus on recruiting, motivating and developing a highly diverse and talented group of people, offering them an environment in which their talent can flourish. The better our people, the better the organisation will do. Our training programmes are linked to our organisational effectiveness plans to produce higher quality management behaviour and ownership to achieve goals with fewer and more efficient use of people; about 20% of our activity is course based learning with the remainder project and development based, linked to our talent management system which in turn is driven off our strategy/structure plans. We are creating a formal certified management development programme to enhance core knowledge. We have programmes for talent management and leadership development. Our Human Resources team works with managers to identify training needs and to develop appropriate solutions. They also evaluate training effectiveness for both the individual and the organisation. Development opportunities include on-the-job mentoring, secondments and work shadowing. We also encourage staff to study for professional qualifications and to utilise online and distance learning. Equality Act 2010 VisitScotland as a Public Body is bound by the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) (Scotland) Regulations Formerly we had a Single Equality Scheme which outlined our policy proposals, however it is no longer possible just to have an ongoing commitment to equality of opportunity, we have to mainstream quality objectives through the core business and report in a different way. The first set of Equality Outcomes, explaining how we will make this happen have to be written and published by April 2013 and each subsequent set should be published at intervals of no more than four years. VisitScotland is consulting by way of an internal Equality Steering group, made up of staff and managers, in order that the equality objectives and outcomes will be achievable, measurable and most of all accountable. Where appropriate we will also consult outside groups. In practice, the Equality Duty requires that the consideration of equality issues puts an influence on the decisions made by VisitScotland including how it develops, evaluates and reviews all its policies, both internal and external, how it designs, delivers and evaluates services, and how it commissions and procures from others. RISK MANAGEMENT Through its Audit Committee, the Board fulfils its role of Corporate Risk Governance. The corporate risk register not only identifies all high-level risks which impact on the whole organisation and are likely to affect the achievement of objectives contained in the annual operating plan, but also it identifies lower-level risks which affect specific areas of operation within VisitScotland. Risk management has been fully incorporated into the corporate planning and decision making processes of the organisation. Preparation of annual departmental operating plans includes a review of existing risks and discussion of any potential new risks. Economic and environmental scanning are key components in this process. They assist in identifying global factors which may affect the business and aid planning to mitigate them. Risks are also identified, managed and reported at project level through project managers. 11

12 HEALTH & SAFETY The Board of VisitScotland has responsibility for the health and safety of staff, visitors and others affected by VisitScotland activity. To carry out this responsibility the Board will provide governance and leadership. The Board will receive regular reports from the Health and Safety Committee on all trends, issues and recommendations. The Health and Safety Committee, a cross-functional team, works to maintain a safe working environmental and continuity of access to our business premises, in accordance with our legal and reputational obligations to Scottish tourism. CAPITAL EXPENDITURE VisitScotland is provided each year by the Scottish Government with an allocation which is used to buy capital assets which are used to support the purpose and objectives of the organisation. In this year the organisation has been given a base Operational Capital Budget to operate of 700k which has been increased by 350k to accommodate and allocation for shovel ready projects. Therefore the total budget allocation for 2014/15 has been set at 1.055m. VisitScotland intend to use the grant in the following manner: Rothesay Winter Gardens VisitScotland owns this property comprising a VIC, cinema and bistro. It is the organisations intent to refurbish this visitor and community asset during the year which will involve the purchase of a new digital projector as a result of distributors withdrawing 35mm format for new films. A sum of 150k has been set aside for this project. IC Improvement Program - VisitScotland will continue to undertake a rolling program of improving the visitor experience when visiting one of our VICs. This work will be across Scotland and we will endeavour to use Supported Companies in elements of delivery of this activity. The works will look to include improvements in areas such a lighting and branding to the use of technology within both manned and unmanned locations. A sum of 400k has been set aside for this activity. Technology improvements - The organisation also needs to ensure that it retains the ability to operate efficiently and effectively. To do this we shall look to ensure our systems, PCs and Tills operate at a level which will permit us to deliver the services to our customer which they expect. Additionally we will look to improve our operations by making new use of technology in areas such as Quality Assurance and shared corporate systems. A sum of 480k has been set aside for this activity. 12

13 ORGANISATIONAL CHART VisitScotland Board Chief Executive 1. Chief Executive Office (HR, Corporate Communications) EventScotland 4. Partnerships 5. Corporate Services Business Area Payroll Costs ( m) FTE (1-3) Partnerships (4) Corporate Services (5) Total Voluntary Redundancy At the end of 2013 the European Commission and the UK Government reached an agreement that affected all UK tourism authorities. This agreement meant that, as one of those tourism authorities receiving government funding, we were forced to review our commercial activities. Last year we removed the booking facility on VisitScotland.com and since then we have been gradually reducing other commercial activities with industry. Linked to this is another important operational change as we see the declining use of print among our customers. This has prompted us to cease to produce some print and to look at managing other print projects with an external third party. Going forward we will be putting greater emphasis on digital and multi-media content and formats. All staff who are in roles which are directly impacted by these changes will be eligible to apply to the voluntary redundancy scheme. 13

14 APPENDIX 1 - OUR MEASURES ESTIMated ECONOMIC IMPACT Ryder Cup 2014, Scottish Open and Homecoming Scotland Independent agencies will assess total economic impact (direct & indirect) of the event. International and National Events Programme - Economic outcomes are assessed using a consistent, industry standard methodology. Major / international events require a full, independent evaluation. VisitScotland Information Centre (VIC) network - Refers to new income generated in Scotland as visitors change their expenditure patterns following a visit to VIC. Target is based on estimates from independent research (by DTZ / Progressive ( ) reflecting current footfall figures and estate. Growth Fund - Based on Economic Impact Assessment by Frontline (2013) CONSUMER MARKETING ADDITIONAL visitor SPEND The additional amount contributed to the Scottish economy by a particular marketing campaign is based on rigorous assessment of the campaign response and is calculated using conversion rates and additionality. The conversion rate of any activity is measured by asking recipients or responders to a campaign whether they actually have visited within the campaign period. This determined through follow up evaluation research. The additionality is determined by factoring out those who were planning to visit Scotland anyway. All major marketing campaign evaluations are carried out by independent agencies. OTHER MEASURES Value of potential leads: Business Tourism Unit (BTU) Core Events - Enquiries are received by the BTU as a result of activities. Those which have specific details (i.e. not speculative) are registered and their value calculated using nationally adopted (UK-wide) multipliers for Delegate Expenditure and the size, nature and duration of the conference. The value stated is that for conferences won. Due to the long lead time for conference organisation, this includes conferences which will be held in future years. We are currently developing a new model for evaluating the economic impact of this activity. Value of conferences won: National Bid Fund - The Destination Management Organisation (DMO)/city convention bureau estimates the value of the conferences using a provided model. This again uses nationally adopted (UK-wide) multipliers for Delegate Expenditure and the size, nature and duration of the conference. Value of potential business: EXPO - Buyers are asked for an indication of the potential value of business identified during expo. This information is gathered using a consistent survey methodology. Route additional revenue - Estimated value calculated using a model which considers factors including capacity, load, proportion of inbound visitors and average visitor spend (derived from the International Passenger Survey). 14
