The corporate training plan includes sessions specifically tailored to managers to better equip them with the skills needed to effectively manager their staff. Subjects covered include things like appraisal training, absence management, discipline and grievance plus update briefings on things such as Investors in People.
A Health and Wellbeing group, with representatives from across the council, has recently been formed to look at all areas of Health and Wellbeing. A Health and Wellbeing Fair was held earlier in the year involving a number of local professionals and organisations giving advice and demonstrations on a variety of subjects. As a result of this several further events have been made available for staff including reiki/massage sessions and pilates. It is envisaged that through the work of the Health and Wellbeing Group this events list will grow. Additional health and wellbeing provision includes access to free counselling services, occupational health and the opportunity to pay into the health scheme.

Communication is the key to ensuring employees feel they are rewarded for their efforts and feel valued as part of the organisation. People's contribution to the organisation is recognised and valued. There are celebration awards, a staff suggestion scheme and being informed of the results of any suggestions made and letting staff know their opinions were valued. There is an appraisal system and staff receive feedback from their managers. The Council has adopted a rolling review process for Investors in People to ensure the mechanisms continue to be in place to support staff and let them know how valued their contribution is.
