Awards

We are proud to see the work of our staff being recognised by the following awards...

Local Government Chronicle (LGC) Awards

2012 – Management Team of the Year – WINNERS!

Change is difficult at any time, but transformation on the scale and at the speed being delivered in Derby has brought with it challenges. Creating a new management team and embedding the transformation programme across the organisation has been difficult but involving Directors and Heads of Service from across the organisation in the programme’s governance has helped ensure maximum buy-in.

2013 – Business Transformation - WINNERS!

Derby City Council was awarded the Business Transformation Award for the 'one Derby, one council' transformation programme.

‘one Derby, one council’ has been the catalyst for change in Derby. The success of the programme is undoubtedly due to strong leadership, a clear vision and the support and involvement of staff across the organisation.

Even in these tough financial times, we have been innovating, finding better and smarter ways of doing things. We have invested in new IT so we can work more quickly and effectively.

Winning this award is a great achievement and is recognition by our peers of the work we have been doing over the last three years in transforming the organisation.
