Excellence Award for Council team

Excellence Award for Council team West Oxfordshire District Councilís revenues and benefits team has scooped a national award for Excellence in Education, Training and Development.

The team was picked from three finalists shortlisted from around 25 local authority entries to win the Award from the Institute of Revenues, Rating and Valuation (IRRV).

The Awards Panel chose the team after it was demonstrated that they not only excelled in education, training and development, but were also able to provide evidence of new approaches, which have improved individual performance and contributed to the Councilís success.

The Councilís Vice Chairman Derek Cotterill praised the team for their Award and hard work at a meeting of the Full Council yesterday (Wednesday 21 October).

He said: ďThere is a clear link between our approach to training and development and the vastly improved service that our customers have benefitted from over the last 18 months, and this award is testament to this. Our Council has the best performance in Oxfordshire for dealing with benefit applications promptly and we are committed to continuing to provide the highest standard of service for our residents.Ē

The other finalists in the Excellence in Education, Training and Development Award category were Waltham Forest London Borough Council and Fife Council.
