New council chief executive starts blog to communicate with staff and public

1 comment, , by , in News

Shetland Islands Council’s chief executive has started a weekly blog as part of efforts to improve communications with local authority staff and members of the public.

Alistair Buchan posted his first blog, available at http://shetlandchiefexecutivesblog.wordpress.com, today.

“As I’ve said before, I believe in clear communications,” he said. “I think that keeping employees and the public informed will be vital as the council moves forward through this huge improvement process.

“The idea of the blog was that it provides another way – a modern way – to communicate with folk. It also provides a way for them to give us their feedback and comments on the way things are going.”
