Two of our probation staff have joined eight other front line employees from across the Seetec Group to take up their seats on the first directly elected employee council.
They represent 2,500 colleagues on the new council, which will influence the strategy and direction of the business.
Elections to the council took place earlier in June with Seetec’s five business divisions, which includes KSS CRC as part of their justice pillar, electing two council representatives. Elected officers will serve a term of two years before fresh elections in 2022.
Suzanne Purcell, regional Education, Training and Employment Manager, said: “I embrace the opportunity of working together with my colleagues to further develop our understanding of the benefits of employee-owned trusts and how we can shape the future of our business.”
Benjamin McCormick, Resource Administrator, said: “I’m intent on doing my best to allow employee voices to be heard as we move forward.”
Suki Binning, Chief Executive, said: “It’s excellent news to see our employees, who know the service the best, representing our interests on the council and shape our service. Our employee-owned model of public services aligns the interests of people delivering services with those who use it – a powerful driver to create social and economic value in the communities we serve.”
