Employee Development

Falkirk Council recognises that the learning and development of employees has a key role to play in ensuring employees have the necessary knowledge and skills to deliver a high quality and cost effective service to the community the Council serves.

The following policies and guidance notes reflect and support our commitment to learning and development:

Confidential reporting

The Council is committed to the highest possible standards of openness, probity and accountability.

In line with that commitment we expect employees and others that we deal with who have serious concerns about any aspect of the Council's work to come forward and voice those concerns. It is recognised that most cases will have to proceed on a confidential basis.
