The Times 100 Best Councils to work for

Congratulations to Test Valley Borough Council for their achievement as sixth best Council to work for and Best mid-sized Council to work for.

Significant to mention here because the top team completed the PMI programme.
Here’s what the article in the Times (23/09/08)said:

“The officer management team is undergoing emotional intelligence development. This means that senior managers are being mentored and are supporting each other to develop their skills to solve problems by understanding the differences in people’s needs, wants and styles. The aim of this work is to bring about a change in the organisation’s overall culture by making leaders more effective, creating more productive processes, improving the transparency of decision-making and promoting positive management styles through enhanced communication.”
