Workforce Development Strategy

The primary role of a Council is to protect and support the community's people and places where there is a duty and a need to do so.

It achieves this by delivering a wide range of services that it is legally required to provide (statutory); and services that the Council decides are important to the community (discretionary) because they directly help vulnerable residents, contribute to health and wellbeing, or enable an environment to help people and businesses to contribute to achieving a prosperous and vibrant community.

The Workforce Development Strategy supports the Corporate Strategies of Boston Borough Council, East Lindsey District Council and South Holland District Council by:

  • Enabling and supporting colleagues across and within the three Councils to deliver the aims of the Corporate Strategies.
  • Establishing a healthy environment of trust and support across and within the three Councils.
  • Placing a focus on staff health and resilience.
  • Improving outcomes by focusing on people and place - customers, residents, elected members, partners and colleagues.
  • Delivering both integrated and locally delivered services and matching the right skills to the right roles.
  • Embedding an effective, visible and high performing leadership team to support each Councils' employees and priorities.
