Summer breaks, My HR and the return of IRONMAN 70.3

I hope that you have all had a relaxing break over the summer and had the opportunity to spend some well-earned time with family and friends.  In the Henderson household, it continues to be a busy year as we get to the end of our self-build project.  It has meant that every spare moment has been booked with building and construction tasks, as well as supporting my wife, Shona, who has been acting as project manager.  It’s been a long haul, but it’s been worth it.

Back at SCC, this week sees another step on our way to being a smart working organisation with the launch of My HR.  This is rather more than a new software package, as it puts you in control of your own HR and finance.  You will be able to update your details, submit expenses claims, manage your leave and view your payslips from anywhere on your own smartphone.  We’ve taken great care of the introduction, and I’m hugely grateful to the Change Champions who have given so much of your time to ensure that everybody has had the appropriate training.  I know that it has taken you away from your normal duties, and that you have had to demonstrate great adaptability and resourcefulness, but, if and when this introduction is a success, the credit belongs in no small part to you.

Lastly for today, many of you will have read about the Ironman competition continuing in the county next year, and potentially beyond, but moving its finish from Shugborough to Stafford town centre.  This is excellent news, and a real result for our Sportshire Coordinator Jude Taylor who has carefully led the negotiations with a large number of stakeholders.  With the finish in our thriving county town, local people and businesses have an even greater opportunity to view and benefit from this amazing spectacle.
