Equality objectives and action plan

Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan is structured under nine objectives:

  1. Belonging: To have an inclusive culture that celebrates diversity, where everyone can feel safe, well and able to be themselves. To grow and retain a workforce that feels it belongs and is supported to thrive.
  2. Voice: To create an effective ongoing dialogue between leaders and the wider workforce, to engage, listen to and gain clarity about what is important to them. We will feedback on what we have heard and deliver actions.
  3. Recruitment: To attract and retain an agile and flexible workforce with the knowledge, experience, and behaviours to make Devon the Best Place to live and work, to achieve our organisational priorities.
  4. Learning: To be an organisation that learns and is committed to developing its workforce through a variety of opportunities.
  5. Reward: Offer a reward package that is flexible, equitable, and transparent to provide benefits to our workforce, by connecting them to what they value.
  6. Ensure accountability, financial resilience and efficiency, innovation and good decision making, through robust performance information and governance.
  7. Increase opportunities for communities to achieve their potential.
  8. Improve community safety, resilience, health, and wellbeing.
  9. Improve community accessibility and connectivity.
