Our values

We all share a common purpose of public service to the people of Staffordshire. Our values support our Strategic Plan and vision and are at the heart of everything we do. Our people are A C E and unique, which is why we want to make sure we lead them well and provide the benefits and wellbeing support they need. Our people have different roles, different things that motivate them, different learning needs and will be at different stages of their career journey. But our values unite us to achieve amazing things.

People Strategy

Our People Strategy has helped us to grow and develop as a council. Our achievements over the last few years have provided us with a fantastic platform to build on. The strategy has helped us to lead our people well during unprecedented times, during which colleagues have shown resilience and strength to achieve amazing outcomes for the people of Staffordshire. We are proud of all that we have achieved together. Our smart working agenda has changed our culture for the better and has given our people the confidence to do things differently, make bold decisions and modernise the way we work.

How we work and How we lead

How we work and how we lead During the launch of the 2023-27 People Strategy, colleagues told us that they would like something to help describe the leadership qualities that are important to our organisation and the ways we can work that will help to demonstrate our values. In response, people from across the organisation were invited to share their views and ideas. The results of those conversations are what you’ll find in the How we Work and How we Lead at Staffordshire County Council documents access via the tiles below.
