Recommendations agreed.



Cabinet considered a report providing an update for Quarter 1 on key HR activities along with a refreshed workforce profile.


Councillor Glynis Phillips, Cabinet Member for Corporate Services, summarised the report.  She drew particular attention to paragraph 9 outlining support for staff in obtaining qualifications in Maths and English.  It had been identified as a barrier to promotion in the gender pay gap report, revealing a higher proportion of women in lower paid jobs.


Councillor Phillips also noted a reduction in absence.  Managers had been encouraged to have early discussion with staff about the reasons for absence.


Councillor Duncan Enright asked if there was any more recent information on absence related to Covid infection.  Councillor Phillips responded that she did not have anything more recent but those figures would be included in the next report.


The recommendations were moved by Councillor Phillips, seconded by Councillor Sudbury and agreed.


RESOLVED to note the report.
