Shining a Spotlight on Success

Local government is doing amazing work. Every single day. Sometimes when you read the news of late, it is difficult to remember this. The countless achievements and milestones often go unnoticed, overshadowed by the pressing demands of day-to-day operations. However, taking a moment to pause, recognise, and celebrate these achievements is not merely an exercise in self-congratulation – it’s a vital component of fostering a culture of excellence, pride, and continuous growth.


One powerful way to do this is by submitting award entries, a practice that not only showcases a council's accomplishments but also uplifts the spirits of the officer core who make it all possible. It's more important than ever for UK councils to engage in this practice and Beartas can play a pivotal role in shaping these submissions.

Recognition Beyond Borders Submitting for awards provides councils with a platform to share their success stories far and wide, extending beyond the immediate community. Winning or even just being shortlisted can significantly raise the profile of a council, offering recognition from peers, industry experts, and the wider public. This external validation can open doors to new collaborations, partnerships, and opportunities to shape best practice across the sector, strengthening the council's reputation. Boosting Staff Morale: The Heartbeat of Any Council While external accolades are rewarding, the internal benefits are just as, if not more, valuable. For the hardworking officer core who often toil behind the scenes, knowing that their efforts are not just recognised but celebrated can be a massive boost to morale. It reinforces the idea that every contribution, no matter how small, plays a part in the council's larger successes. Awards serve as a tangible testament to the team's dedication, passion, and excellence for the communities they serve every day. It reminds them that their work has far-reaching impacts, creating positive outcomes for the residents, businesses, and stakeholders they work with and for. And in moments of challenges or doubts, these recognitions can serve as powerful reminders of what the team can achieve. Continuous Improvement The process of submitting an award entry, with its introspection and evaluation, can often be as valuable as the award itself. It compels councils to assess their projects, initiatives, and services critically, shedding light on areas of improvement and underscoring best practices.
