Our Guiding Principles – have your say

With one week left to have your say, I’d encourage everyone to take part in shaping the Council’s Guiding Principles.

If you haven’t already you can find out more in a blog and a vlog post from Isla Newcombe,  Chief Officer for Organisational Development, or go ahead and take part in the survey.

Our Guiding Principles will give a shared sense of what it means to work for Aberdeen City Council.

More than ever we need to be working together and pulling in the same direction. The Principles will give voice to the otherwise unwritten rules that help us to offer challenge and support to each other at every level – and to the way decisions are made and the processes that are in place. They will help us to deliver the transformation that we need to meet the challenges we face now and continue to face into the future. Most importantly they will have been created by us all.

Around 800 people from teams across the organisation were involved in shaping the themes and now it’s incredibly important that you have your say before the Principles are finalised.

My thanks go to all who have played a part so far, with every contribution valued, and I look forward to sharing the final version with you towards the end of March.
