People and Culture Village

This Village aims to support local government officers with responsibility for the People and Culture functions of Queensland councils, including human resources, learning and development and organisational improvement. 

With a wide-ranging remit, this Village hosts a range of exchanges which cover all elements and also offers webinars and forums which will take a specific, and narrower, focus, such as Learning and Development or Human Resources.  The Village is a place to get together, share information, get updates on the latest legislation and policies as well as new tools available to assist councils in managing their people processes.  Ultimately, the Village aims to utilise the expertise across the sector to ensure Queensland councils offer quality employment opportunities, are growing great people and that the sector has a reputation as being a great place to work. 

We trust that you derive value from the interactions and information shared via this forum.

Note: LGMA Exchanges are available at no cost to officers of subscribing councils.

Join our LinkedIn Group!

Want to connect with officers in this village? Join Our LinkedIn Group.

This group has been created to allow members of this village the opportunity to share information, upload documents and post topics for discussion. This group is private and only officers working in Queensland Local Governments will be accepted. We believe it will serve as a valuable extension of our existing exchange, as it is a great tool for both networking and cross council collaboration.

Making a LinkedIn is free, you can create an account here: Sign Up | LinkedIn
