WATC supports the investment in developing the knowledge, attitudes and competencies of our people to enable us to increase our collective capabilities. During 2019/20, our people had the opportunity to attend a variety of learning and development opportunities covering both technical and interpersonal skills. This included Microsoft Teams telephony training, Understanding Mental Health in the Workplace seminars and a Women and Super information session. WATC is also currently supporting six people to complete postgraduate tertiary study by contributing to their tuition fees.
To achieve our strategic objectives we need recruitment practices that result in the right people working in the most suitable roles, who are also able to cultivate our values. This year saw an increase in our use of behavioural profiling and technical testing to recruit and build a high‑performing and well‑balanced team. During 2019/20, eight people started with WATC, stemming from ordinary turnover and to support operational priorities.
