Staff planning success

Staff planning day

Family Start Manukau are in the process of developing a three-year strategic plan, and keen to include all staff in that process, they held a planning day at Umupuia marae in Maraetai on Friday the 10th Feb 2017.

“It was a full day,” says Business Support Administrator, Chamath Ekanayake. “It was a session to get feedback from our staff about all aspects of Family Start Manukau and the community we serve – the needs of the community, how well our services cater to such needs, the working environment, the type of support they need and more.”

Attended by all staff and facilitated by Cherie Appleton, it was also a great opportunity for the Family Start Manukau team to spend some time together in a beautiful place, without the pressures of their daily workload. It was heralded a great success by all.

“The staff participated enthusiastically,” says Chamath. “They contributed very important information required for our strategy planning session.”
