The LGA and CIPD are working in partnership to create an evidence base for a core set of metrics for measuring people management in local government.

Strengthening Corporate Peer Challenge

The LGA’s peer challenge offer is effective and well regarded by the sector. The LGAs most recent survey found that every council that had received a corporate peer challenge found the process for preparing for and participating in the peer challenge has had a positive impact on their council.

The LGA offers local government a range of peer-supported improvement programmes, including Peer Challenge and Councillor Mentoring and we welcome interest from both senior officers and councillors in becoming peers.
