Quality conversations – tell us what you think

Based on feedback, you told us that PRDs were not working in the way you would like. You asked for a less formal more continuous approach to personal development. As a result, earlier this year, we introduced Quality Conversations between managers and employees. Our new approach enables you to have time with your manager to discuss your work objectives, look at ways we can support you to carry out your job and identify career development opportunities.

It’s a much more relaxed conversation while making sure what is discussed is relevant and helps day to day work. You can find more about our new approach here.

Quality conversations are taking place all year round. We would like to know via a short survey, if you have already had a conversation with your manager. If you have, what do you think of the new approach? You can find the survey on LEON.

­­Please complete the survey by 31 August. We have developed some guidance to support you to complete this survey.

All employees can access LEON. If you are on a networked device you can log straight into LEON by clicking on the ‘Login via Azure’. If you do not have a council email address, you should enter your employee number and password. You can find further advice on MyCouncilWorks.

If you have any issues logging in, email trainingcentre@argyll-bute.gov.uk with your name and employee number. You can also call 01546 605513 (option 3).

We are asking line managers to complete an additional survey. You will receive an email from LEON asking you to complete the survey. If you have not received an email by Friday 15 July and you are a line manager, please email trainingcentre@argyll-bute.gov.uk and we can look into this further for you.

Thank you for your support.
