Engagement for a purpose: making sure our voice is heard

11/05/15 @ 12:30 - 16:30

A Workforce Development Networking lunch, plenary and workshops

John Swinney described Health and Social Care Integration and SDS as a “mega reform” at a recent leadership and workforce focussed event. Clearly there are great expectations of our workforce in the months and years ahead, as well as huge challenges, but are we being meaningfully engaged to address these challenges and are we engaging as well as we could with our workforce to bring about mega reform?

The Workforce Development Network has received Scottish Government funding for another year and we will use this event to get your views on our new work plan and invite you to contribute to workshops on our hot topics:

  • Valuing the Frontline Workforce – key findings from the recent benchmarking survey of pay and conditions in the voluntary and private sectors and opportunities to influence workforce reward and recognition.
  • Leadership – hear about the Step into Leadership evaluation and some examples of how providers can incorporate this resource into their organisations
  • Fitness to Practise – your chance to find out more about the SSSC fitness to practise model and to share your views
  • Engaged workforce – Feedback of the national engaged workforce survey results and discussion of how we can influence health and social care integration
