30 Aug 2012

Hurstville City Council has been acknowledged by its peers for excellence in workforce management at the Local Government Managers Australia’s NSW 2012 Management Excellence Awards.

Mayor of Hurstville, Cr Steve McMahon congratulated all staff involved in this achievement.

“In a very competitive field of entries, Council received a highly commended for Excellence in Workforce Management in Local Government,” he said.

“These prestigious awards recognise outstanding and innovative leaders, managers and councils who are integral in the pursuit of excellence in improvement.”

Mayor McMahon, who attended the awards ceremony at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, said he was very pleased that Council’s work was recognised and awarded.

“Council was acknowledged for the development and application of its leadership model and workforce planning within the integrated planning and reporting framework,” he said.

“Historically, human resources has been soft management and it was difficult to measure its success.

“With our recent workforce planning, Council has developed and implemented a number of initiatives that have successfully led to a high level of staff retention, improved performance and a low rate of absenteeism.

“This all leads in to our commitment to provide an even better service for our community.”
