Newtownabbey Borough Council has been short listed for the ‘Workforce Equality and Good Relations’ award in the Northern Ireland Local Government Awards, recognising the work the Council has been doing in the area of employee engagement.
Chief Executive Jacqui Dixon said employee engagement was about creating a great place to work.
“It is about developing ways to meaningfully engage with staff across the organisation and to involve them in the decisions which affect the services they deliver. It is about promoting a ‘can-do’ culture and developing a sense of pride and commitment in working for the Council.
“Fundamentally we want to create culture where staff are willing to work together for the benefit of our customers and for the future success of the Council.”
The award winners will be announced at the Northern Ireland Local Government Association Annual Conference tomorrow, February 10.
