A People Strategy, aligned to the Council Plan, will drive BCP Council in prioritising activities and initiatives that will support the development of our workforce and the delivery of the council’s desired organisational outcomes.

The People Strategy will accelerate cultural transformation and increase employee engagement, thereby developing a clear BCP Council workforce identity, supporting the effective delivery of change and transformation in the organisation.

The priority behaviours establish the behaviours that are considered to be important by our workforce in creating the right culture for our future successes, and which all staff can be held accountable to.
