Chief Executive's message

Bromley Council's Chief Executive, Doug Patterson, speaking

Our vision is to be an excellent Council in the eyes of local people. We aim to provide services that are high performing, value for money and customer focussed. Our working environment will be one of empowerment and continuous improvement.

Being an excellent Council doesn't just apply to the services we provide, it also means looking after our workforce to help them perform to their full potential. We want to be an excellent employer and make sure everyone enjoys coming to work.

Achieving this means using our performance management processes to ensure everyone is clear about what is expected of them and having employment policies and practices that contribute to making us a flexible and effective organisation in which staff feel their contribution is valued and that they are treated fairly.

People are our most important asset and going forward it is vital we recruit and retain the right people with the right skills. However, it is equally important that those people who join and work for Bromley Council also understand and share our values and approach to service delivery as these are fundamental to taking our organisation forward.
