Winner of the Capability Group Award for Innovation in Organisation & People Development: Together We Thrive! E Ora Ngātahi Ana - Central Hawke's Bay District Council

About the Winner:  

Together We Thrive! E Ora Ngātahi Ana is Central Hawke's Bay's multi-year organisational transformation and development programme -  designed to align with council's wider vision for the relationship with the community.  

The Judges said: 

Together We Thrive is an ambitious rethink of the way an entire local government organisation thinks and acts. To have achieved the level of improvement in staff engagement in 12 months is a testament to the leadership of senior management, alongside a clear expectation from the governance wing, and a clear measurable transformation plan. We look forward to hearing more of the progress of this initiative in coming years.
