Many APSE member councils, during the course of the on-going health pandemic, expressed concerns about the impact on the local government workforce well-being and the overall impact on resilience, both in terms of managers facing new challenges and increased demands, alongside the overall workforce, including frontline staff and ‘back-office’ unseen roles, as well as on managerial and political leadership teams and elected members dealing with new demands at a constituency level.
APSE conducted a short survey during late November / early December in an attempt to identify the reality for both frontline and support staff on their mental health and wellbeing as they have supported their local communities throughout the pandemic.
312 responses were received and the results show a somewhat bleak emerging picture of the impact on the local government workforce as the relentless challenge of dealing with this crisis and delivering core services to our most vulnerable members of our communities continues without respite.
Join us to learn about the emerging themes and the action that councils have taken to bring a sense of hope and realistic optimism for the year ahead.
APSE in partnership with the PPMA will be hosting an online discussion workshop on the 15 January 2021 to further explore the survey findings. You can book online to register for this FREE event. Click here to register your place
