Under our ‘Supporting Change to Happen’ strategy, which underpins the Reshaping Trafford Council programme, North West Employers worked closely with us to deliver leadership training to our managers to help them to engage with and lead their staff through transformational change. North West Employers’ expertise and detailed understanding of local government and the financial challenges we are currently facing – coupled with the impact of public service reform – really helped us to design a bespoke offer that will add real value to our transformation programme. As always, the commission was undertaken with total professionalism and the evaluation of the leadership training has been really positive, with 97% of participants rating the overall programme as good or excellent.
