Bradford Council Case Study
How one of the largest local authorities in the UK created a culture of performance improvement with the help of AdviserPlus training services.
How do you continue to serve one of the UK’s largest districts by population, while working towards ambitious targets for workforce reduction?
It’s a challenge Bradford Council has chosen to tackle head-on, through operational and – crucially – cultural change.
Managers trained online & via workshop series
The MI AdviserPlus provided really helped us prove that performance management was an area we needed to address, and drive this message home with management teams at every level.
The solution & benefits
The Council’s solution? Strengthen its HR front line, by boosting engagement amongst managers at all levels. That meant turning to AdviserPlus for help in developing and rolling out a comprehensive training programme for more than 360 managers.
The programme is helping to transform behaviour and foster a stronger culture of performance management. Managers who’ve attended the training are now almost twice as likely to open a case, helping to ensure any issues are addressed before they turn into big problems.
- 100% of attendees continue to find their training valuable
- 84% rate themselves as confident or very confident
- 64% say they have a better understanding of the resources available to help them
