Three of the biggest challenges facing councils today:

Values icons

Aging workforce.

With over two thirds of its workforce aged 40+, the UK's local government sector is facing higher sickness rates as its population ages. 

In order to fill their talent pipeline, UK councils must work proactively to meet the needs of a new generation.

Values icons

Budgetary pressures.

As inflation continues to soar, UK councils must execute more and more with limited budgets.

Not only does this make balancing expenditure harder than ever, it puts added strain on employees, most of whom are overworked and underpaid due to a lack of funding.

Digital innovation.

Despite COVID highlighting the crucial need for digital transformation, local councils are still struggling to develop sustainable infrastructure.

In addition to working with stretched budgets, leaders must address legacy tech and siloed systems before they can innovate.

How we help you solve them.

“We estimate that we’ve saved £152,000 in terms of increased productivity and efficiency savings. This means that the absence service has provided a great return on investment, and having more employees available to work gives us a far greater opportunity to deliver a good service for our customers.”

“... when we are alerted to
high levels of absence, such as musculoskeletal problems in the factory, we can proactively address them because we now have clear trigger levels in place.”

“Across 11,800 staff, GoodShape helped to recoup 33,040 working days within 12 months - or the equivalent of returning 144 full-time staff to work.”
