Team of the year

  • Comment

Winner: Vale of Glamorgan Council

The Leadership Café was designed as a leadership and management development programme without the attendant costs, selection requirements or wider trappings of such a programme. The aim was to create an informal café-style environment for employees to discuss and share leadership issues and commission examples of good practice. The café has been open since May 2015 (every third Thursday of each month). It is run by a small but highly motivated co-ordinating group of interested employees and open to any employee from across the council.

Judges’ comments: ”This category had many fine examples of team working but one example stood out: it’s organic, sustainable and innovative nature of improving the whole council is replicable across the whole of the country.”
