Why Attend

Welcome to LGC Workforce – a new and exciting conference and awards programme from Local Government Chronicle.

Workforce is a critically important issue for councils and it is vital that we disseminate what’s happening on the ground.  

This new event will showcase workforce innovation in local government and give councils access to practical ideas which have already been demonstrated to work and have made a difference in their organisation.

Within the programme you’ll hear keynote speakers and panel sessions debating the hot topics in workforce.  You’ll also get the chance to watch the shortlist for our 8 categories present live to the judges and hear first-hand about the projects and how they are transferable to your organisation.  Discover the journey they went on, the challenges they faced, and what they’d do differently in future.

LGC Workforce will demonstrate workplace best practice all in one place, all on one day.  We’ll find out about how the projects came together, who was involved, the challenges overcome and most importantly what the outcomes were and how they have made a difference for their authority.

Why attend:

  • Learn from councils who have come up with innovative solutions to the workforce challenges facing councils
  • Take away ideas which can be adapted and implemented in your area saving the time it would take to find out about these ideas or reinventing the wheel
  • Hear and debate with high level thinkers on the workforce challenge
  • Tailor the event to what you’re interested in as you get the chance to select 2 of the 8 categories and watch each of the shortlist present live to the judges
