JACK HEGARTY, THE managing director, dressed up as Buzz Lightyear at a Wychavon District Council staff briefing on customer service to get his point across. His inspirational style goes down well with the 244 employees who have a great deal of faith in him, winning the Pershore-based organisation positive scores of 79% and 86%. People are clear about what is expected of them (76%), and are happy with their pay and benefits (67%). wychavon.gov.uk

Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

88% of staff agreed

My work is an important part of my life

A key message from Jack, the Managing Director shortly follows the fortnightly Senior Management Team meetings to share with employee discussions and decisions made. This promotes transparency and the cascade of important information throughout the Council. He demonstrates through his actions how he wishes to be fairly treated alongside all employees; for example, when the Council tightened up entitlements to payments of car allowances for budget pressures, he relinquished his entitlement to an essential user car allowance and also wrote to the Leader of the Council indicating that because of the economic climate he will not accept any increase in salary for the next 2 years and that, even then, any increase would be subject to the Council achieving its programmed savings for the next 2 financial years.
