St Nicholas sets an annual operational plan with clear objectives for each department which should then link to team and personal objectives. Budget setting for the year is done collaboratively with managers e.g. fundraising targets are set by what the team believe they can achieve.

St Nicholas Hospice are a charity and many of their social events are linked to fundraising. These activities do bring staff from all disciplines together in either participating in the event or helping or organising. They also hold an annual Christmas review where different departments including the Trustees secretly prepare acts. These are then performed to the whole organisation, patients and volunteers and this year's was another hilarious success.

There is an open door policy by managers and a robust staff forum chaired by the CEO who can initiate meetings with management. Last year, St Nicholas delegated response identification to the various directorate groups. Results are displayed in chart format around the building. Actions became an agenda item on Staff Forum and Management Meetings.
