Message from the Chief Executive
Welcome to the Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council Staff Handbook.
I am very pleased to provide the introduction to the Staff Handbook. Whether you are full-time member of staff, working with us for just a few hours a week, or on a temporary basis, you are a valued member of our community.
Local authorities are large and complex organisations. The aim of the Handbook is to act as an easily accessible reference document, providing answers to most of your day-to-day straightforward questions. In particular, I am sure it will prove really helpful to new staff joining Basingstoke and Deane as well as existing managers and staff. The Handbook is available on Sinbad and is also available in printed form.
Whilst the Handbook contains a great deal of information, it is not seen as a substitute for conversations with colleagues, line managers and members of the Strategic Management Team. Do ask any one of us if you have a query or concern.
