To receive a report from the Group Manager for Governance and Data Security providing the Committee with an update on progress made against the Annual Governance Statement 2017/18 Action Plan.
The Committee had before it, and NOTED, a report * from the Group Manager for Performance, Governance and Data Security providing it with an update on progress made against the Annual Governance Statement 2017/18 Action Plan.
It was explained that there had been ten issues identified within the action plan and that there had been some slippage on completion dates but progress had also been made.
A Sickness Absence Action Plan had been developed by HR and the Health and Safety Officer. This had been approved by the Leadership Team in October 2018. HR had rolled out ‘return to work interview’ training for managers although this plan was not yet fully implemented.
The Chief Executive reminded the Committee that sickness statistics were reported on a regular basis to the Cabinet and Council through the annual Establishment report which was due in February.
