How will it benefit you?
It will allow councils to better understand how many active employees are in place across the councils and subsequently perform deeper analysis by staff level, service area, tenure, gender, profiling and leave liability etc. This in turn will assist councils to establish a baseline inventory - you will have a good idea of the shape and mix of your workforce/s on day one. It will also enable engagement in conversation around the type of resources (staff levels, gender, generation) that exist in different service areas. It will fast track you prior to a merger, as well as after and provide future, more sophisticated resource planning.
