We are becoming a modern digital council and establishing new ways of working.
Through this we have an opportunity to create a better way of working for everyone, and are redefining how and where we work.
The work to introduce our new ways of working is overseen by the Connectivity programme which was underway before the pandemic. We have now reshaped this to incorporate our response to changes in the way we work that have happened as a result of the pandemic, as well to include as our longer-term aspirations.
This section of the intranet provides you with the information you need to know as we transition to our New Ways of Working.

We are on the journey to prepare, agree and establish our new ways of working.
There are many steps that we need to take to achieve this. It will take time and we ask for your support and patience with this.
To help you understand more about the steps that we need to take we have produced a Roadmap.
The Roadmap sets out the four phases needed to establish our new ways of working and some of the actions we need to take in these phases.
Although fairly linear, this roadmap will need to recognise the need for adaptability and flexibility as work progresses.
Services are likely to move at different speeds with differing requirements. We may not get it right first time so a learning approach is also needed.
Prepare – Create – Realise – Enhance
Based on what we know now and what we’ll learn from speaking to staff, we’ll establish our New Way of Working throughout 2021 and 2022.
While we are doing this, we’ll support both managers and staff and we’ll help everyone work in the best way possible.
Your feedback is vital in each phase of the roadmap and you will have the opportunity to give us your views.
