Fair Say with Craig and Joe goes virtual

Our Chief Executive Craig Hatton and Council Leader Joe Cullinane are launching their latest series of ‘Fair Say’ staff engagement sessions.

The pair will be going on a virtual tour during autumn to meet with employees across the Council to catch-up and answer your questions.

The sessions are an opportunity to share your experiences of working during lockdown as well as a chance to get an update on Council business from our Chief Executive and Leader and put your questions directly to them.

There are five sessions available – all via Microsoft Teams:

Monday 19 October, 2.30pm – 4pm
Tuesday 20 October, 10.30am – 12 noon
Thursday 22 October, 1pm – 2.30pm
Monday 2 November, 11am – 12.30pm
Wednesday 18 November, 3.30pm – 5pm
Spaces are limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis. To BOOK, simply visit Eventbrite and select the date you wish to attend.

This marks the second round of the ‘Fair Say’ staff engagement series, after a successful and well-received programme last autumn when Craig and Joe toured North Ayrshire hosting a session in each of our localities.

The ‘Fair Say’ sessions were launched as part of a new approach to open up better dialogue and have open and honest discussion with the workforce.

Chief Executive Craig Hatton, said: “Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we’re all working in new and different ways. Whether that’s working from home, in a completely different role all together or working with new procedures and equipment, we’ve all had to adapt in some shape or form over recent months.

“I am extremely proud of the efforts of each and every one of you. Together, we’ve supported our communities, cared for our most vulnerable and continued delivering vital services. My deepest appreciation and thanks go to you all.

“These Fair Say sessions are a chance for Joe and I to hear about your experiences, ideas for the future and to share our gratitude to you for the role you’ve played in our response to the crisis. We know that the past few months have not been easy and that there will be significant challenges ahead, but if our actions over the past six months have shown us anything, it’s that we are resilient and our priorities are focused on what really matters – our people and our places.

“There is a lot of uncertainty over many parts of our lives just now, not least work. So, if you have any questions or concerns about work please join one of these sessions – we want to hear from you.”

The sessions will be held virtually via Microsoft Teams, so please make sure you have access to Teams before booking a space.
